COMIC legend Dave Spikey will be hoping to avoid becoming tongue-tied when he brings his Words Don’t Come Easy tour to Lancaster’s Grand Theatre on Saturday, March 31.

A spokesman for the Grand said: “Inspired by the amazing reaction to his deconstruction of song lyrics in his Best Medicine Tour, combined with his fascination with the vagaries of the English language, Dave’s hilarious new show examines many more situations in life where words don’t come easy.

“These include tongue-tied parents explaining the facts of life, ridiculous newspaper stories, hospital speak, pathetic adolescent chat-up lines, learning a foreign language and an extended selection of song lyrics that range from the lazy to the ridiculous.

“Throw in a Champion the Wonder Horse sing-a-long, a look at ancient Abyssinian contraception, rubbish school trips, epidural anaesthesia and the Last Supper and you have all the ingredients for a rich and spicy casserole – a sort of Lexicon-Carne.”

Tickets are £18/£16.50, and available from the box office on 01524 64695.
