ED2012 Comedy Review: Ian D. Montfort – Unbelievable (Tom Binns / EdCom)

By | Published on Monday 20 August 2012

An alter ego of character comic Tom Binns, Ian D. Montfort is a stunningly camp caricature of best loved spirit medium Psychic Sally. His act involves reaching over to the other side and connecting the audience with dead celebrities of their choosing. The jokes come thick and fast; the show is howlingly funny, and very often just brilliant. It goes beyond satire as Binns artfully manages to read members of the audience, revealing their deepest, darkest secrets and musing upon their past lives. I am still utterly confounded about it all, but best not to think too hard about how he works his tricks, just book yourself a seat and get ready to laugh like a loon.
