Garrett Millerick is a big comedian who I saw perform for Twice as Nice Comedy at Hammersmith, London in 2013. The material was based around doing absolutely nothing, but he was a tour-de-force on stage for his ten-minute set bellowing out funny stories and quick-fire puns.
The comedian strolled onto the stage at the Clapham Grand for the first #SaveLiveComedy show in August 2020 and delivered a cranky yet hilarious rant about the state of the world and the effect of the pandemic. His delivery soared to get his points across and made the crew and the zoom audience laugh out loud.
Millerick was first on the bill that I saw at Outside The Box Comedy Club that I watched in May 2021. The gig was live and outside in a windy beer garden, but Millerick was determined to make the audience laugh and did so with a barrage of hysterical stories and new material. He was an absolute joy to watch and exceptionally funny.
In November 2022, at the Soho Theatre in London, I watched Millerick’s brilliant solo show, Just Trying To Help. The show examined life’s irritations and problems in an intelligent and hysterical way. The comedian’s presence filled the stage as he ranted and boomed out routines making bullet-proof cases from the points raised. The show was extremely clever and wise, which was thoughtfully constructed by a wonderful comedian.
In February 2023, Millerick headlined the Best of Irish at The Craic Den comedy showcase for the Leicester Comedy Festival. The set constructed of why he was there (being an English comedian) and his view of Leicester itself. Ending the routing by ranting the audience stood on a chair, this was one of the funniest routines that I have watched all year. Millerick was also a wonderfully witty guest for Vix Leyton’s Comedy Arcade Live at the Festival.
