David Trent: Here’s Your Future
Take a deep breath and join me on a multimedia rampage. I’ll stare down the world’s most disturbing kids animation, smart forks and mattresses, virtual bedtimes, robosex, gay cakes, international hummus day and the European light bulb directive. I’ve been on television nine times and nominated for major comedy awards. It’s going to be a lot of late-night fun. All welcome. No bans. ‘His meticulous deconstruction and righteous exasperation makes him a master of the genre’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Sugared target missiles, aimed squarely at the heads of bigots and phonies’ (List).
‘Perfect comedy’ (ThreeWeeks).
