The much loved stand up and star of the smash hit Channel 4 comedy 'Phoenix Nights' appears at the Arena on Friday 24 October as part of Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival.
He'll be performing his new show 'Punchlines', and arguing that you don't always need a punchline for a joke to be hilarious. Dave is one of the most sought-after comedy talents in the UK. With a career spanning two decades, he has numerous television appearances to his name as a stand-up comedian, presenter and actor, and behind the screens, as an acclaimed comedy writer. As well as starring and co-writing in 'Phoenix Nights', he also co-wrote 'That Peter Kay Thing' and was team captain on 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4).
