Never miss another 'Dave Spikey' show
Punchlines: Dave Spikey
Punchlines generally 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 very few Punchlines are inherently 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. Then of course there's Nuns. Nuns in baths, Nuns on bikes and Prince Charles wearing a Fox hat. Dave will argue that you don't always need a Punchline for a joke to be hilarious and suggests that if you doubt him, you should ask the bloke with the big orange head.
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).
