WINNER: MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL BARRY AWARD 2016 – BEST SHOW
NOMINEE: LASTMINUTE.COM EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARDS 2016 – BEST SHOW
After a smash-hit Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated run at the Fringe, Zoe Coombs Marr returns with her monstrous character, Dave. Dealing with the fallout of his first show and the Twitter threats from scary feminists, Dave’s given up stand-up and turned to the serious clown-training of Gaulier.
Featuring such classic hits as ‘What’s the deal with online bullying?’, ‘Mime caught in political correctness gone mad’ and ‘The 6-foot duck meets crippling-fear-that-keep-us-awake-all-night sketch’.
Watch as a hack stand-up attempts a silent clowning show that won’t offend anyone. Trigger Warning: clowns, clowning, failure, Dave.
Running Time: 60 mins
Age Recommendation: 16+
