David Trent – This Is All I Have (Phil McIntyre Entertainments)

By | Published on Sunday 4 August 2013

Part comedian, part AV technician, David Trent has been making a name for himself with his peculiar technology-aided comedy. More than a prop, Trent’s videos, photographs and audio-edits merge well with his more conventional stand-up resulting in a well-scripted and well-performed hour. Trent is an amiable, likeable character, and his show straddles skilfully the line between crude debasement and high-handed showmanship. Sincere yet cocksure, Trent has the comedic skill to justify his extravagant mid-life crisis, mortgage and all. This may be all he has, but it ought to be enough to guarantee a successful Fringe.

Pleasance Dome, until 25 Aug, 10.45pm.
