Phoenix Nights co-writer Dave Spikey in Dorking
November 16, 2011
Award-wining comedian Dave Spikey brings this critically accalimed Words Don’t Come Easy stand-up tour to the Dorking Halls on Friday November 25, at 8pm.
Of course anyone who has seen one of Dave’s live shows or read his best-selling autobiography, Under The Microscope, will know that words come very easily to the hugely popular comedian.
Inspired by the fantastic audience reponse to his deconstruction of song lyrics in his 2008/09 Best Medicine Tour and his fascination with the vagaries of the English language, this hilarious new show examines the many situations in life where words really don’t come easy.
These include tongue-tied parents explaining the facts of life, ridiculous newspaper stories, magazine poems, adolescent chat-up lines, weird hospital speak, learning a foreign language and an extended selection of song lyrics that range from the lazy through surreal to the ridiculous.
The double British Comedy Award winner warmed the nation’s hearts as cabaret stat Jerry ST Clair in Phoenix Nights, which he co-wrote with Peter Kay and Neil Fitzmaurice. Dave then went on to write two more comedy dramas – Dead Man Weds and Magnolia before starring as team captain in 8 out of 10 Cats for four seasons and then hosting the new series of Bullseye.
Most recently Dave has been a regular presenter of the TV Book Club on Ch4.
