Out US stand-up
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
