Dave Spikey celebrated his 30th year in comedy in 2017 with a brand new show Dave Spikey: Juggling on a Motorbike which looks back on his remarkable life and his incredible journey from working class kid to Chief Biomedical scientist to much loved comedy performer and writer via Phoenix Nights, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Bullseye, The Royal Variety Show and many more.
The Dead Man Weds and Magnolia star reflects that maybe none of this would have happened and that he would still be looking down his microscope today if it wasn’t for the juggler on the motorbike!!
Dave had been working in the NHS for 19 years as a biomedical scientist when in 1987 someone uttered the immortal words: “You’re really funny, you should be a comedian.” And for some reason he took them seriously!
Dave continues to tour with Juggling On A Motorbike throughout 2018
