Darlington Comedy Festival presents Tom Binns & Funny in Real Life
Tom Binns: The Psychic Comedium (Work in Progress)
Multi award-winning comedian Tom Binns has performed his Psychic Character Ian D Montfort to 5-star reviews around the world.
He’s entertained and amazed sceptics and believers alike on his own BBC Radio 2 series ‘Ian D Montfort is: Unbelievable’, his critically acclaimed BBC One series ‘Hospital People’, and in the smash hit British film ‘Eaten By Lions’.
During this time Tom appears to have started to believe he has genuine psychic ability and now performs as The Psychic Comedium.
“I’ve discovered I have psychic abilities that are at least as strong as anyone who has ever claimed to be a psychic. If not stronger”
In his performances Tom clearly makes jaw-dropping revelations about his audience but is he gifted? Is he deluded? Or is he just full of sh*t?
Whatever you decide his gift for comedy is undeniable and his psychic powers are unbelievable!
“Binns has either gone native or so deeply ironic that he’s lost touch with reality. I can only assume he’d sell more tickets as a ‘real’ psychic. In this post-truth, end of days, era we are living in, why not? Best of luck to him” – Horizon
Funny in Real Life (Work in Progress)
A stand up comedian sees his world fall apart when his wife decides he can no longer mention her onstage. Should anything be off-limits in the realm of confessional comedy? Is it OK to overshare with an audience of complete strangers? How would you feel if your life was turned into a joke?
After last year’s hugely successful run of their debut play – ‘The Ladder’- real life married couple, Rob Rouse (‘Bottom’ Upstart Crow, BBC) and Helen Rutter (Holby City, Coronation Street) return to Edinburgh with their brand new show.
