Dave wants a word

FUNNYMAN Dave Spikey explores the quirks of the English language to Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Thursday, April 5.

The double British Comedy Award-winner Dave Spikey, has added 20 dates to his critically acclaimed Words Don’t Come Easy tour.

Inspired by the fantastic audience response to his deconstruction of song lyrics in his 2008/09 Best Medicine Tour, and his fascination with the vagaries of the English language, this show examines many of life’s situations where words really don’t come easy.

These include tongue-tied parents explaining the facts of life, ridiculous newspaper stories, magazine poems, adolescent chat-up lines, weird hospital speak, learning a foreign language and an extended selection of song lyrics that range from the lazy through surreal to the ridiculous.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Call the box office for ticket availability on 01332 255800.
