PERFECT comic timing is promised in Halifax, where one of the UK's finest performing talents will soon deliver his trademark brand of humour.

Dave Spikey is on stage at Victoria Theatre on March 24 as part of his critically acclaimed Punchlines tour.

With a career spanning more than two decades, Dave has many TV appearances under his belt as a stand-up comedian, presenter and actor – and behind the screens as a comedy writer.

The past year has been a busy one for the Lancashire based-comic, which saw him reprise his much loved character, Jerry “The Saint” Sinclair for a 16 night run at the Manchester Arena as part of Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights for Comic Relief.

This, along with Punchlines’ tours in the spring and autumn, guest presenting spots on the hugely popular Channel Five Cats/Dogs/Pets make you laugh series, and Dave’s own script writing projects has seen the former chief biomedical scientist as busy as ever.

Can a joke or funny story still make you laugh like a drain when you have been given the punchline beforehand?

Dave believes so and his Punchlines show will present strong evidence to support this while landing blow after blow that hit square on the funny bone.

His gags have been described as the stuff of stand-up dreams.

Floating like a jovial butterfly and stinging like a bee with killer one-liners, Dave dissects the classics, from nuns in baths to Prince Charles’s fur hat to that lion walking in a pub, all delivered with the quick one-two of a comedy champion.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Call 01422 351158 or visit for tickets.
