Harvey Greenfield is Running Late

A groundbreaking one-man piece of comedic theatre that asks a simple question: Is it possible to please everyone, all of the time? And at what cost to your family and health? In this fast and frenetic comedy, award-winning writer/performer Paul Richards runs and sweats a lot as he explores our need to please and why it's sometimes healthy to, every now and then, just sit in a shed and play Subbuteo by yourself, eating biscuits and listen to Meat Loaf. Fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe! “ Like an alternative Ferris Bueller…the escalating web of chaos is skilfully scripted in the vein of a classic film comedy" ★★★★ - The Scotsman

Tom Binns: The ‘Psychic’ Comedium

Multi award winning comedian Tom Binns has performed his ‘Psychic’ Character Ian D Montfort to 5-star reviews around The World and in the smash hit British film “Eaten by Lions”. He’s entertained and amazed sceptics and believers alike on his own BBC Radio 2 series ‘Ian D Montfort is: Unbelievable’ and his critically acclaimed BBC 1 Friday night series Hospital People. During this time Tom claims to have discovered a genuine ‘psychic’ ability and now performs as The ‘Psychic’ Comedium. In his performances Tom clearly makes jaw dropping revelations about his audience but is he gifted or is he deluded or is he just full of shit? 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 sells more tickets if he claims to be the real deal. In this post-truth ‘end of days’ era we’re living in, why not? Best of luck to him.” - Evening Mail
