ED2012 Comedy Review: David Mills Is Smart Casual – Free (David Mills)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Looking dapper, while perched on a stool in ‘’a sweaty basement’’, David Mills delivers a set filled with celebrity references and camp; I tittered rather than belly-laughed but was astonished at how quickly time passed. Although Mills originally hails from America this has a distinctly British feel – he covers the Queen, the Olympics and, of course, the weather; he also discusses the brilliance of bad Fringe shows, telling us what he thinks are this year’s worst (which I won’t name here). Yet in between the frivolity he occasionally makes perceptive remarks on current affairs, which makes one wonder just what he is capable of. But largely we just sit back and enjoy the feeling of having a bitch with the perfect boy best friend.

Alternative Fringe @ The Hive, 2-27 Aug, 3.45pm.
