Whatever you decide his gift for comedy is undeniable and his 'psychic' powers are unbelievable!

“Binns has either gone native or so deeply ironic that he’s lost touch with reality. I can only assume he sells more tickets if he claims to be the real deal. In this post truth ‘end of days’ era we’re living in, why not? Best of luck to him.“ Evening Mail

"The Psychic ‘Comedium’ is, ‘a masterclass in improvisation, character comedy and mindreading" Telegraph

With DJ Ivan Brackenbury, ‘Binns has his character nailed and he mines the comic seam, ruthlessly to create top-quality entertainment with practically universal appeal’ Guardian
