Zoe Coombs Marr brings back her monstrous character DAVE for his difficult second album. 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 six-foot duck meets crippling-fears-that-keep-us-all-awake-at-night-sketch.
Watch as a hack stand-up attempts a silent clowning show that won’t offend anyone. Trigger Warning: clowns, clowning, failure, Dave.

★★★★1/2 Herald Sun
‘Top-flight character comedy.’
‘Punky and genuinely original.’
‘A cascade of ideas, jokes and images that leaves you head spinning and your heart laughing. This is daring, high-wire comedy at its best.’

★★★★★ The Age
‘Quite remarkable… a black mirror on the Australian male psyche.’ ★★★★ Guardian
