Mickey D

Since storming the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2000 Mickey D has performed across the UK, throughout Europe and the States and acquired an impressive list of TV and radio credits. More recently his achievements were acknowledged when he won’ Best Comedy Award 2007 at the Adelaide International Festival’.

"Charmingly gregarious and a world class talent" The Independent

His previous sell-out shows in Edinburgh include; 'Mickey D has Detention Deficit Disorder', 'Mickey D was a Pub Kid' and 'Velocity Boy'.

"His material is all delivered with such bawling gusto that it's a joy to take in" Edinburgh Evening News

Mickey is equally at home as compere or headline act and his boundless energy and infectious smile is always guaranteed to rub off on any audience.

Mickey D returns to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2007, with the critically acclaimed show ‘Shame 101’ which won him ‘Best Comedy’ award at the Adelaide International Comedy Festival this year. ‘Shame 101’ is a breakneck departure from the highbrow, a refreshing ride of pure fun - liberating, cheeky, honest and real. No power-point, no gimmicks. Edinburgh 2007 will see Mickey D complete the grand slam of international festivals - Adelaide, Melbourne, Auckland, Montreal and now his 7th Edinburgh festival.
