Garrett Millerick is a London based writer, director and comedian. A regular on the stand up circuit, Garrett can be seen up and down the country in a variety of guises but mostly as himself, saying what he thinks about things in pubs/ theatres/regional art centres and the occasional music festival. He can be seen performing regularly at The Schadenfreude Cabaret in North London where he is the resident compere. 'Millerick is a belter of a new comedian, well worth shouting about' (The Stage) '... avoided cliche and made contentious points convincingly, though all in the name of a laugh rather than setting out any serious manifesto...
