A fantastic double bill of Edinburgh Fringe previews from David Mills & Jonathan Hearn.
DAVID MILLS: DON’T GET ANY IDEAS
Free. Focus people! David Mills is back with brand new, razor sharp rants delivered with signature cocktail swagger and a biting, acerbic wit. Hilarious tirades covering celebrity pop culture, ISIS, politicians, and London life. Mills gleefully ‘skewers sacred cows with a droll precision’ (Fest). Like a mash-up of Dave Allen and US political satirist and Letterman successor Stephen Colbert. Expect a smart hour of spikey comedy and irreverent commentary for grown-ups. ‘A class act. David Mills is heading for the big time’ (Time Out). ‘Devilishly charming’ (Chortle.co.uk).
JONATHAN HEARN: ALWAYS JON, NEVER JOFF
Following a sold out show at The Proud Archivist earlier this year, Jonathan Hearn further enhances his solo stand-up show – previously titled Jonathan Hearn’s Bits – for the Camden Fringe 2015.
Expect red wine, jokes, wildly inaccurate stories, puppetry, a few ditties, a short play and a measure of brandy.
“plenty of charisma, and a glint of silliness” – Steve Bennett, Chortle
“Hearn has an unconventional but intelligent style.” – Katie Chapman, Three Weeks
“Very clever wordplay.” – The LP Project
“Jonathan Hearn’s bricolage of comic fancies had me laughing from start to finish. One of the silliest, funniest, inventivest hours of nit-wittery I’ve seen.” – Trevor Lock
“Old-school meets weird school. Jonathan Hearn is hilarious.” – David Mills
“Jon has a tightness and sleekness to his act. Carefully constructed jokes and unbreakable professionalism in any situation.” – Poppy Hillstead, The Proud Archivist
“87% of the time [his] hair looks amazing.” – Jen Wells*
