A Funny Thing Happened
This show was rescheduled from 29th April 2021.
Dave Spikey brings his comedy show A Funny thing Happened... to Ilkley
Funny things happen all the time. Normal events don’t catch the eye but Dave’s special radar instinctively draws him to the small out-of-the-ordinary events and conversations that wash over most of us and pass us by. Once identified, he applies his unique style of exaggerating and elaborating them whilst reminding us that we too have not only witnessed them, it’s probably happened to us! It’s this added dimension, this comedy of association that elevates the event to laugh-out-loud funny.
A former haematologist turned comic with a style that walks a line between the commonplace and the surreal. He is a British Comedy Award-winner and member of the Peter Kay's star-studded 'Phoenix Nights' team on Channel 4. 'Not only a very funny accomplished comedian, but one of the finest raconteurs around' (Time Out) 'Down-to-earth comic genius' (City Life) 'Spikey's gags are the stuff of stand-up dreams, his interplay and analysis the basis for clever, laugh-after-every-line comedy' (Leicester Mercury).
