Which One’s Fergal? (Garrett Millerick)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Comic chameleon Millerick zips through a host of quick-fire costume changes, flitting from Brummie hip-hop artist to plummy Tory and back again in this series of character sketches. Each persona is brilliantly enacted and equally entertaining; Nigel the traffic warden, for instance, who has a passion for “the petty application of arbitrary rules” and “watching people cry,” does a fantastic spiel about NHS Direct, while the mannerisms of PC Wetherby are in themselves hilarious. Millerick’s delivery was mostly spot-on; the rap at the end, however, I would happily have traded for a bit longer with shuffling Liberal Democrat Lesley Bakewell and a few more of his glorious prototype posters for Clegg’s next election campaign.
