Ian D Montfort
“Ian D Montfort, is a spookily skillful, wonderfully observed and hysterically funny character who contacts dead celebrities with incredible results. A monster hit at the Edinburgh Fringe” ***** Time Out London
“The style of the act is genius – if it works, it’s impressive, if it doesn’t work, well it’s all part of the joke” **** Chortle
“…the character remains hilarious even as the tricks become remarkable. It is two shows for the price of one: pin-sharp character comedy and metaphysical magic to boot” **** Guardian
