Dave Spikey Tour 2011 "Words Don't Come Easy"


  • Date: Saturday 3 December 2011
  • Time: 7.30pm

Dave examines situations in life where words really don’t come easy... These include parents explaining the facts of life, newspaper stories, adolescent chat-up lines, police speak and song lyrics from the lazy through surreal to the ridiculous. Throw in a Champion The Wonder Horse singalong and you have all the ingredients for a rich comedy casserole - a sort of Lexicon-Carne!

“Words don’t come easy”, but there was certainly one word that came easy for the audience – ENCORE! Manchester Evening News      

“Down to earth genius” Liverpool Echo

“Pure Comic Gold” – Lancashire Evening Post
