David has just returned from the Edinburgh Fringe where he performed his new show FOCUS PEOPLE! at The Underbelly.
A superior act. Mills is an archduke of comedy with the emphasis on ‘arch’.
David Mills is a class act. His jokes are beautifully crafted, sparkling little missiles loaded with wit.
Darkly funny, bristling with sharp-tongued satire and incisive wit.
Like the sharp-suited lovechild of Larry Grayson and Dave Allen, Mills combines laid-back storytelling with acerbic wit.
Mills deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Dave Allen. A legend in the making.
David Mills is heading for the big time. Most definitely one to watch.
