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.
‘Smart and 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.’
‘Punky and genuinely original.’
‘Dave is a comedy turducken of gross-out gags, absurdist humour and sharply observed parody. It’s the most deliciously funny show I’ve seen this year.’
