Comedian Dave Spikey is to return to The Baths Hall next year.
The comic, famed for appearances in Phoenix Nights with Peter Kay and Paddy McGuinness, will be bringing his new show ‘Punchlines’ to Scunthorpe on Thursday, June 2.
Punchlines derive their humour from being unexpected - “Punch” indicating that the “Line” should come as a surprise, which stimulates laughter.
Dave explores the methods that can be employed to achieve this, discusses naturally occurring punchlines and along the way challenges the major school of thought that a joke is never, ever as funny when you have been given the punchline beforehand.
To support his theory he will submit punchline evidence ranging from “Bob? Who’s Bob?” and “Have you got Bunk Beds?” to Nuns. Nuns in baths, monkeys in baths and that Lion walking in a pub.
