Dave Spikey - Punchlines
- Category: Middleton Arena
After two sell out shows at Middleton Arena (2009 and 2011) Dave Spikey returns to kick off his 2014 tour with a brand new show. 'Punchlines' looks at the humour of the unexpected. Co-writer and star of legendary comedy series Phoenix Nights and That Peter Kay Thing, team captain on 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), the Double British Comedy Award Winner is one of the funniest live performers in the UK. 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! Part of Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival.
