Masterclass from the old school

Well-known for his appearances on The Comedians, Mick Miller is one of a handful of 1970s stand-ups still touring.

Now 62, Miller has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years.

On Tuesday night, he treated a small but eager Festival audience to an hour of non-stop schtick. There was hardly any smut and next to no bad language, just punchline after punchline, all masterfully timed and delivered.

Establishing an easy rapport, Miller didn't let the disappointing turnout put him off.

And proving he's a nice guy as well as a class act, Miller stuck around in the bar afterwards and chatted with fans. Sometimes the old ones are the best.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

The urge to splash out will probably diminish, saving you a significant sum. Money from an inheritance, dividend or royalty payment should be conserved. Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. Independence is the best gift you can give yourself. Materialism won't bring you the happiness you seek.More
