Tom Binns as Ian D Montfort **** The Telegraph

“Tom Binns’s Ian D Montfort is a spoof spiritualist medium who puts audience members in contact with people they’ve never met, such as Michael Jackson or Jesus, because celebrities are more interesting than their loved ones who have “passed”. All the tropes of he trade are mercilessly lampooned inĀ Unbelievable: the vague questions (“Is there a lady on Facebook”), pseudo-science and stabs in the dark. “Does Susan Walker mean anything… or Sue who likes to walk?” A lot depends on the audience being up for the joke, but this is a show that passes all too quickly.”
