Albert’s Comedy Shed #5 w/ Dave Longley
Dave Longley is a difficult comedian to define; on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent and disarmingly funny.
Longley’s towering stage presence and intensity, combined with his cutting wit have made him one of the most popular and controversial circuit comics in the UK, whether it’s doling out thought-provoking insights or revelling in toilet humour, Longley is a gifted wordsmith with great audience interaction skills.
“Acid tongued and as sharp as a barrel full of tacks… As intense and intelligent performer as you’re likely to see” – The List
“Highly original and bloody funny” – Three Weeks
