Dave Johns: I, Fillum Star
@ Theatre Royal NewcastleBook Now
01 October 2017
Local boy makes good… at the age of 61
What happens to a stand-up comic when he’s plucked from the comedy circuit by master film maker Ken Loach and cast in the title role of one of the most acclaimed and talked about British films in recent years?
I, Daniel Blake became a beacon for social realism and, for Dave Johns, a rollercoaster ride of red carpet surrealism. From Cannes to the BAFTAs, chatting to Woody Allen in a lift and accepting acting awards alongside Hollywood’s greatest… he was there, wide-eyed. Through it all.
Now he’s back in Newcastle doing the thing he loves best – making people laugh.
For one very special night only …
