"A cascade of ideas, jokes and images that leaves you head spinning and your heart laughing. This is daring, high-wire comedy at its best." 
 - Chortle

Fresh from multi-award-winning runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, comes the mind-bending brilliance of Zoe Coombs Marr and her monstrous drag character Dave. A hack comic dealing with the fallout of his first show, and twitter threats from scary feminists, Dave's given up stand-up, and turned to the serious clown training of French mime-master Philippe Gaulier. 

A feminist comedian dressed as a mouthy male stand-up, dressed as a silent Gaulier clown. Sound confusing? It is. Watch as a hack stand-up attempts a silent clowning show that won't offend anyone. 

Trigger Warning: clowns, clowning, failure, Dave.
