Dave Spikey 2019 Tour

Thu 28th November 2019
New Mills Art Theatre, New Mills, SK22 3HJ

Davehad been working in the NHS for 19 years as a Biomedical Scientist when in 1987someone uttered the immortal words, “You’re really funny, you should be acomedian” and for some reason, he took them seriously!!  Only a few short months later he was crownedthe winner of the national talent show “Stairway to the Stars”. Larry Grayson,one of the judges, told him that it was a close run thing on the night but whatclinched the award for Dave was his routine about a juggler on a motorbike. Fastforward 13 years (Is that possible?) to Friday 13th October 2000 ,the day Dave switched off his microscope for good and found himself, thefollowing Monday, sitting on rain swept local car park dressed as a giantberry!! So now in 2019 he celebrates the 32nd anniversary of his comedy career.In this show he will look back on his remarkable life and his incredible journeyfrom working class lad to Chief Biomedical Scientist to much loved comedyperformer, presenter and writer via Phoenix Nights, Eight out of Ten Cats, Bullseye,Dead Man Weds, Magnolia, The Royal Variety Show, Parkinson and many more. He oftenreflects that maybe none of this would have happened and he might still belooking down his microscope today if it wasn’t for the juggler on themotorbike.
