Inspired by Dave’s
fascination with the vagaries of the English language, this hilarious 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, rubbish school trips, magazine
poems, adolescent chat-up lines, TV news speak 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, a wildly eccentric granny and a sausage and bean bake 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!”

The proceeds from this evening’s performance will be donated
to the Preston and Chorley district
association Laryngectomy Society. This
organisation raises funds for head and neck cancer patients and regularly funds
equipment purchases at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals to improve the early
diagnosis and follow up of cancer patients in Lancashire.
