Juggling on a Motorcycle - T226615925

Dave had been working in the NHS for 19 years as a Biomedical Scientist when in 1987 someone uttered the immortal words, "You're really funny, you should be a comedian" and for some reason, he took them seriously! Only a few short months later he was crowned the winner of a national talent show with his routine about a juggler on a motorbike.

Punchlines - T1057009610

A unique opportunity to see the man himself up close and personal before he embarks on a massive UK tour. Punchlines is Dave's latest comedy project in his long career. Punchlines generally derive their humour from being unexpected - "Punch" indicating that the "Line" should always come as a surprise or shock. The major school of thought suggests that very few Punchlines are inherently funny out of context. There is another school of thought (actually Dave's school of thought) that the opposite can be true. In this new show he will present evidence to support this. He quotes : - "Where do you want your blinds?"/ "It's not my dog" /That's my Thermos flask !". Then of course there are nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a fox hat. Dave will argue that you don't always need a Punchline for a joke to be hilarious and suggests that if you doubt him, you should ask the bloke with the big orange head.

Word's Don't Come Easy - T468721507

Inspired by the fantastic audience response to his deconstruction of song lyrics in his "Best Medicine Tour" combined with his fascination with the vagaries of the English Language, this hilarious new show examines many more situations in life where words don't come easy. These include tongue-tied parents explaining the facts of life, ridiculous newspaper stories, magazine poems, pathetic adolescent chat-up lines, weird hospital speak, learning a foreign language and an extended selection of song lyrics that range from the lazy through to the surreal to the ridiculous.

The Best Medicine - Repeat Prescription - T884286398

In this new show, Dave tackles the old adage 'Laughter is the Best Medicine'. It was his Dad's favourite saying; which is why when Dave was six, he nearly died of diphtheria. In later years, working in the NHS as a Biomedical Scientist, Dave discovered for himself that scientific evidence endorsed his Dad's wise words; it has proven that when we laugh our bodies release a cocktail of chemicals and hormones which reduce stress and blood pressure, lift depression, boost the immune system and here's the clincher... burn calories!
