David Trent: Here’s Your Future (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Sunday 13 August 2017

The internet is a brilliant and strange thing, and David Trent’s romp through some of its darkest bits shows it with contempt and wonder in equal measure. It seems apt that ‘Here’s Your Future’ takes place in a dank cave, mirroring the grubby corners of the internet that Trent likes to shout about (and he shouts a lot). The likes of smart forks, vibrating alarm clocks and the never-ending echo chamber of Twitter all come under the spotlight. There’s echoes of Adam Buxton’s ‘Bug’ about this show, which mocks comment sections and the self-important trolls who inhabit them. It’s a good chuckle and, if nothing else, you’ll learn about the quantity of Harry Styles’ nipples.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 26 Aug.
