Description

Former sketch and character wonk has quit comedy in favour of the lucrative art of spiritualism. You will gasp and dilate hard as he allows the spirits of the Philip Schofield Memorial Tower to enter his every available orifice. These revenants tell an authentic working-class story of love, sex-workers, genocide, and a fox reading a bank statement. Imagine The Archers, except everybody's on spice. Chortle Best Newcomer nominee 2018. 'A bold and unique new voice in comedy' (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk). 'Packed with countless elements rich, strange and deviantly chilling' (Scotsman).

This is a brilliant show; rude, silly and shocking but with a tender heart of gold. Performed with charisma he channels multiple characters- I hate making lazy comparisons but he's kind of a one-man-League of Gentlemen but with more absurd elements that are uniquely his own.

This is not merely an hour of titting about and finding himself funny (which is an issue with a number of sketch shows) the script here is well crafted and dense with jokes and absurd (yet strangely relatable) ideas.

This is a good show. If you like Gein's family Gift shop, the league of Gentleman or the Mighty Boosh then you will like this. This was the first time that I saw the Death Hilarious and it won't be the last.

The Death Hilarious: Razer starts out with a pretty solid premise: since his Fringe debut in 2017, Darren J. Cole has become a medium. Capable of coercing ghosts into himself by making cute petting noises (ghosts are like kittens you see), Cole can transform into several different people for the...
