Garrett Millerick: Just Trying To Help (Katie Storey Productions In Association With Avalon)

By | Published on Thursday 18 August 2022

It’s been an awful couple of years but let’s just laugh it off with the help of this seasoned pro. Garrett Millerick’s show covers a variety of topics, but a big part of the set feels a bit like a news recap, with discussions of COVID-19 and COP26 on the menu. Fortunately, the second half slowly moves away from events of the last couple of years, and focuses more on Millerick’s own life and other subjects such as Twitter. It’s a set with no particular cohesion at all, but it doesn’t matter: Garrett commands the stage, ensuring that every joke is expertly delivered without interruption (there is no real audience interaction) and most land very successfully. Millerick certainly does know how to help.

Monkey Barrel Comedy, until 28 Aug.
