Garrett Millerick is an acclaimed stand-up comedian, writer and director.
His unique and versatile style has led to him being in great demand on the alternative and club circuits both in the UK and internationally and he recently made his television debut performing stand-up on the hit US late-night talk show Conan (TBS).
His breakout live show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about shows of 2018, both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and subsequently at London’s Soho Theatre.
The show saw packed houses for both runs and added additional shows to cope with demand. The show was Time Out London’s No.1 Comedy Pick for February 2019, and secured Garrett a nomination for Breakthrough Act at the 2019 Chortle Awards. Sunflower was recorded as an album and is available to purchase internationally from 800 Pound Gorilla Records.
