Tom Binns as Ivan Brackenbury as seen on Hospital People BBC1 and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Channel 4.
“If laughter is the best medicine, Ivan Brackenbury should be a real hospital radio DJ. Ivan's Hospital broadcast, Disease Hour, is the most deliciously enjoyable I've spent on the Fringe. His poorly judged dedications, like everything else in this chock-full show, come thick, fast and funny. And that pregnant pause, as we wait to hear which song Ivan selects for which ailment, gets more tantalising every time.” THE GUARDIAN ★★★★
Hosted by former Congletonian and North Manchester's most reliable comic Phil Ellis.
'Ellis, as a character is both completely likeable and absolutely appalling' ***** (Scotsman)
"Like a holiday camp run by clowns and deviants... there's plenty of fun to be had"- THE GUARDIAN
“This quirky performer has true star quality and bags of originality, mixing physical humour, gimmicks, wordplay and comedy songs. Imagine a cross between Sean Lock and Eddie Izzard and you might be getting somewhere, but nowhere close.” - Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
