Comedy Review: Dave Spikey - Leicester Square Theatre ✭✭✭✭

Dave Spikey
 Words Don't Come Easy Tour
Leicester Square Theatre

Review by Christina Benneworth

Friday 1st November 2013: The comic Dave Spikey brings his tour to London and stops in Leicester Square to talk about the words we use everyday. Dave Spikey knows how to make an audience laugh and I was laughing the whole way through the night.

With stories of his youth, tales of his eccentric grandmother, anecdotes about 'blobbers' and a sausage & bean bake from Greggs, theres stories here to keep you laughing through the night.

Dave has a gift of telling stories, delivering the jokes perfectly on time and if the audience are wavering a bit he knows how to pick it up straight away, a true master of comedy.

It is great to hear funny things about the everyday language and everything that was said was so true even if you had never thought it yourself. My highlight was when Dave goes through some classic songs and picks out some of the worst uses of the english language. Songs you've heard so many times before, but might not have even paid attention to the lyrics. Hilarious.

A generally funny evening. You know when you've been to watch a funny comedian, as you're cheeks tend to hurt at the end, mine definitely did. I recommend seeing Dave Spikey if you love good comedy, no explicit humour, just good general fun... Great night, it wasn't long enough, I wanted more.
