Price:Standard Ticket: £12.00

Musical Comedy Award winner Simon David returns to Komedia to perform “the greatest dead dad show ever seen.” His words.

Simon’s father Huw is diagnosed with terminal cancer. To further upset matters, Huw writes and performs a one-man show about his illness, creativity and imminent death. And to Simon’s horror, it’s quite good.

Bouncing between genres and intertwined with footage of his late father’s show, Simon desperately scrambles to perform an hour so impressive that he’ll never be forgotten but perhaps creates a spectacle so unhinged that it really ought to be.

With support from Jen Ives (Joe Lycett’s Big Pride Party, Channel 4)
