Multi award-winning Dave Spikey is one of the most sought-after comedy talents in the UK today. With a career spanning two decades, he has numerous TV appearances to his name as a stand-up comedian, presenter and actor - and behind the screens, as an acclaimed comedy writer. Most notably, he co-wrote and starred in Phoenix Nights alongside fellow Boltonian Peter Kay.
Punchlines 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 few Punchlines are 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. He quotes: - 'Bob? Who's Bob?' / 'Have you got Bunk Beds?' / 'Eileen, bring me a cloth.' Then of course there's Nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and that Lion walking in a pub; not to mention the bloke with the big orange head.
All proceeds from Work in Progress will go to the charity Pet Rehome. Proceeds from the seats in the dark green area will be split between Pet Rehome and The Better Met Project.
