DAVE– Written by Zoe Coombs Marr
What's the deal with pizza? Single with cats? Finding Nemo's girlfriend. Lesbian totem tennis?! My dad's a good guy! Sex turducken.
Zoe Coombs Marr, “awkward sapphic high priestess of cool” (RealTime), winner of Belvoir’s Phillip Parsons Playwright Award and MICF Best Newcomer nominee presents DAVE. A stand up show done entirely in drag.
Dave is a guy. Just an ordinary guy. Deep in the hearts and minds of all Australians is Dave: Late night, plaid wearing, neck-bearded, drunk by the BBQ, consuming comedy, purging and literally dying on stage.
This show is exactly what it looks like but nothing you expect. It will be intense. It will be extreme. It will be unmissable. A hysterical endurance drag adventure into the dark pits of comedy’s boys club.
"Dave is a comedy turducken of gross-out gags, absurdist humour and sharply observed parody. It’s the most deliciously funny show I’ve seen this year and Coombs Marr’s best to date. ★★★★★" The Age
“I’ve never seen an audience driven in constant hysterics the way they were at Dave, or a standing ovation that was so deserved. Zoe Coombs-Marr’s show is utterly incredible. (If Crikey gave star ratings I would have given it 5. Maybe 6).” Crikey
"Gags are frequently revisited and recycled, which can at times grow tiresome. ★★" Herald Sun
