David Mills 
A superior act. Mills is an archduke of comedy with the emphasis on ‘arch’. CHORTLE 
David Mills is a class act. His jokes are beautifully crafted, sparkling little missiles loaded with wit. SCOTSMAN 
Darkly funny, bristling with sharp-tongued satire and incisive wit. FEST MAG 

Alex Kealy

He has taken three hours of stand-up to the Edinburgh Fringe, the latest being 2018's A Kealy's Heel - "a storming show" (The Sunday Times) which was met with full rooms and critical acclaim. Other work includes writing for BBC Two's Mock The Week.
