Tom Binns - Summertime Special 2016

A one-man variety show from star of BBC1's Hospital People. Old favourite characters and new ones make up this critically-acclaimed solo variety show. Award-winning "Ivan Brackenbury" (Hospital Radio DJ) and "Ian D Montfort" (psychic) are joined by Tom's equally inventive and skilful new ventriloquist act that includes his whole family.

"...possibly the cleverest running gag of all time... Not only is the running gag a thing of comedy genius, but Binns tags it jaw-droppingly brilliantly (his own jaw never drops, of course) by singing the Confrontation duet from Les Misérables in a manner that will wipe Hugh Jackman from your mind forever." - The Scotsman

"Binns has his character absolutely nailed, and mines the comic seam ruthlessly to create top-quality entertainment with practically universal appeal" - The Guardian

"Intelligent, magical, fantastically original and funny enough to kill you from asphyxiation" - TheMagicCircle.co.uk

Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival. Edinburgh, Perth, and Adelaide award nominee. Double Sony Gold winner. Cofilmic Best Comedy. Chortle.co.uk Top 50 Gigs of the Decade.
