HOW TO BE AVERAGELY SUCCESSFUL AT COMEDY
Comedian, Perrier nominee in a previous century, founder member of the Comedy Store Players - in the 1980s Dave Cohen was an averagely successful stand-up comedian. Hey, let's not be over-modest here -
Like an occasionally victorious boxer who has had all the 'quit now' cells pummelled out of his brain, in 2012 Dave gave performing another go. Since his return to the stage in 2004 he has been hailed as ‘a great comic talent’ by the Daily Mail (despite all the nasty things he’s said about them) and the Evening Standard called his songs ‘hilarious’. In his 20s he told jokes and sang songs about being fat, single and Jewish. Now in his 50s, he tells jokes and sings songs about being bald, deaf and Jewish.
Recently he performed his first new one-man show in 16 years, a stand-up poem called 'My Life As A Footnote'. This was followed by the 2012 show of stand-up and songs, 'Songs In A Flat'.
