TOUR 2014 - 2015


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. E.g. : - “Nice baps , where do you want your blinds?” / “Isn't that some sort of fancy liquor" / That’s my Thermos flask !” and "Okay but don't push me passed my mothers". Then of course there’s Nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a fox hat. Dave will also 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.

This Autumn he will preview the show at Chorley Little Theatre on Sept 25th before taking it to Kidderminster Town Hall on Sep 27th , Melton Theatre Oct 2nd, Darwen Library Theatre on Oct 3rd. Then on to Middleton Arena Oct 24, Rotherham Civic Oct 25, Huddersfield Lawrence Batley Theatre Nov 1, Lytham Lowther Nov 6, Lancaster Grand Nov 7, Bolton Octagon Nov 8, Warrington Parr Hall Nov 15, Skipton Mart Theatre Nov 21, Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall Nov 28 and Doncaster Dome Nov 29.
