Words Don't Come Easy

"I wish I hadn’t worn mascara’, my companion remarked as she wiped away the tears as Dave Spikey left the stage . Immediately likeable and with spot-on observations, there was certainly one word that came easy for the audience – ENCORE!! MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

Award-winning comedian Dave Spikey continues his critically acclaimed ‘WORDS DON’T COME EASY’ stand-up tour with a load of new dates. Of course anyone who has seen one of Dave’s live shows, or read his best-selling autobiography Under The Microscope, will know that wordscome very easily to the hugely popular comedian.

“Not only a very funny accomplished comedian, but one of the finest raconteurs around” Time Out

“Words don’t come easy, but with Dave Spikey, around the laughs certainly do”Loughborough Echo

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 hilarious new 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.Throw in a “Champion the Wonder Horse” sing-a-long, ancient Abyssinian contraception, rubbish school trips, Epidural Anaesthesia and The Last Supper and you have all the ingredients for a rich and spicy comedy casserole or as Dave would describe it “a sort of Lexicon-carne ............ sorry!”
