DAVID TRENT

Up­stairs, Plea­sance

NOTH­ING IS safe in mod­ern day pop cul­ture with shouty David Trent on the warpath. His tar­gets range from preen­ing, misog­y­nis­tic rap­pers to Nick Grif­fin’s BNP tv cook­ery show.

Mix­ing satir­i­cally graf­fiti-ed video pro­jec­tion of the mu­si­cians with scrib­bled-over TV record­ings of politi­cians such as Michael Gove pro­fess­ing a love of rap to a group of school­child­ren, he pops the pop cul­ture bal­loon with a loud bang. The sub­ver­sive fris­son reaches its apex when he fo­cuses on the for­mer BNP leader’s cook­ery demon­stra­tion, to which he takes a red-hot comic poker.

The one-time cheder teacher is the hi-tech Banksy of stand-up. Un­til Au­gust 24
