A Message From David
“Originally this was going to be a really, really stupid show. I’ve been working on books of made up facts about animals for the last two years and writing for children and delivering lots of scientific-sounding non-information at tour shows.
But over the winter a few things happened. I realised that quite a few of my friends are really struggling in the crappy Irish recession. I got punched in the face by someone on the street for the second time in a year for no reason whatsoever.  So I’ve decided to try and talk about these things. It will still be mostly really stupid jokes, and songs played on a tiny keyboard, but also some things I think are quite important.
In the past year I have been touring the UK and at the Edinburgh, Montreal and Melbourne festivals and recently did my first solo shows in LA and New York.  I have performed with artists such as Flight of the Conchords, The Divine Comedy and The Horne Section. I am delighted to return to Ireland to present my new show.”
