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?
Whatever you decide his gift for comedy is undeniable and his ‘psychic’ powers are unbelievable!

‘Are you ready for some filth? I know I am. Time once again for me to sally forth and pleasure the provinces with my particular brand of saucy innuendo. Let me at them!’
In this outrageously camp show, (that he was going to call Bed Knobs and Knee Pads but was advised might not sell too well in Harrogate), renowned homosexual Julian Clary will bare his soul as never before in the interests of light entertainment.
He’ll murder some well known songs along the way, no doubt, read you a sneak preview from his next memoir A Night At the Lubricant and make withering remarks about punters foolish enough to sit in the front row. You know the kind of thing. It’s the only life he knows. Don’t miss out.
This might well be the final mince…
