About this Event

Ivan Brackenbury

'Audiences are laughing their heads off' - Metro

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

Tom Binns: The 'Psychic' Comedium

Multi award winning comedian Tom Binns has performed his spoof ‘Psychic’ Character Ian D Montfort to 5-star reviews around The World and in the smash hit British film “Eaten by Lions”

He’s entertained and amazed sceptics and believers alike on his own BBC Radio 2 series ‘Ian D Montfort is: Unbelievable’ and his critically acclaimed BBC 1 Friday night series Hospital People.

During this time Tom using stage tools of misdirection has developed a stunning Mentalist act and performs as The ‘Psychic’ Comedium. In his performances Tom clearly makes jaw dropping revelations about his audience but is he gifted, deluded or just talking rubbish?

Whatever you decide his gift for comedy is undeniable and his ‘mentalism’ powers are impressive!
