7:30pm Garrett Millerick: SPORTS (Work in Progress)

My last two shows have been described as 'critically-acclaimed-sell-out-smash-hits', so I'm attempting to do that again with this one. Historically the third one is never as good as the first two, so I'm really up against it. Not to mention, we’ve all had a bit of time off. But I’ve not been slouching, I’ve been hosting a hit podcast, doing loads gigs on zoom, writing for telly, hosting shows on American Radio, releasing hit albums in America, being on TV in America. (No, I haven’t been on TV in the UK. Politics probably!? I don’t know?! Leave me alone). Look, I’m pretty good at this (see reviews) and I’m going to put a shift in (see past form). You’d be silly not to come (see above).

As seen on Conan, SiriusXM, 800Pound Gorilla Records.
