IAN D MONTFORT
Another amazing character brought to you by Tom Binns the star and co-writer of the BBC 1 Friday Night Comedy Series Hospital People.
"Ian D Montfort, is a spookily skilful, wonderfully observed and hysterically funny character who contacts dead celebrities with incredible results. A monster hit at the Edinburgh Fringe" TIME OUT LONDON
“Ian D Montford, a gloriously deadpan pseudo-psychic. His show – Touching the Dead begins with laughable attempts to work the audience and and then Binns starts unleashing faintly inexplicable clairvoyant revelations, leaving most of the room gasping with incredulity. So he can spoof it, and really ‘do it’”. TELEGRAPH
“Binns makes a triumphant return as the Sunderland psychic Ian D Montfort, mixing eerily good cold-reading skills with a joyful debunking of the genre” INDEPENDENT
"The character remains hilarious even as the tricks become remarkable. This is two shows for the price of one: pin-sharp character comedy and metaphysical magic to boot” GUARDIAN
“The style of the act is genius –‑if it works, it’s impressive, if it doesn’t work, well it’s all part of the joke” CHORTLE
“The show is a spectacular tour-de-force, showcasing Binns’ exceptional acting and comedic talent” FRINGE REVIEW '
"Psychic Ian D Montfort is, ‘a masterclass in improvisation, character comedy and mindreading" - Telegraph ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
He's bonkers! Ivan Brackenbury's fantastic 'Hospital Radio Roadshow', complete with inappropriate records and bungled cues, is now a regular fixture on the live circuit. A daft, inept yet adorable radio DJ takes you on a hilarious broadcasting journey. This is a unique, wonderfully brilliant show, guaranteed to make you cry with laughter. The show took the highest accolade at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where The Times comedy critic declared it ‘the funniest show at the Fringe’.
Ivan’s outside broadcast for the patients of a hospital radio station captures all the fun and excitement you’d expect from being in hospital, with games, give aways, patients requests and his special blend of music and chat. Wickedly funny.

"Deliciously enjoyable" - The Guardian
“Barrage of cracking jokes” Daily Telegraph
“Audience of the verge of being hospitalised with laughter” Independent On Sunday
