David Trent: Spontaneous Comedian

- October 29, 2012

Bringing his Fosters Edinburgh Best Newcomer Award-nominated show to the Brighton Comedy Fringe, Trent demonstrated the joie de vivre of a fringe – supporting and celebrating the excellent unorthodox shows and giving a voice and platform to the unclassifiable. Utilising (to the point of almost forming a double act with) his less-than-trustworthy laptop and PowerPoint, Trent’s show foxed and entertained, including tantrums and watermelons. With comedy proving such a popular live event these days it might be worth re-issuing notices that this isn’t always an interactive sport. But audience over-enthusiasm aside, this was engaging, tightly written and performed, and highly original.
