Dave Eastgate – I Wish I Had A Band (Glynis Henderson Productions Ltd)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

“I jizz when I spew.” Hilarious? Disgusting? Call me crude but this line, amongst others at Dave Eastgate’s show, kept me laughing. At times I’d say his jokes deteriorated into rambles of verbal diarrhea, but there was a genius to his timing, and the musical accompaniments to his routine were Jack Black meets High School Musical. Dave’s comedy was malleable, as he seemed to mix it up based on what the crowd liked – a talent not to be underestimated. I will forgive him his poor Scottish accent (the man sounds like Mrs Doubtfire), because even though the first few “Scottish people” jibes didn’t fly, the crowd soon responded to his relentless high energy. Go and see Dave Eastgate, if only for his skin tight gold leggings.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 28 Aug (not 15), 11.15pm (12.15am), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp63.
