DaveJohns - I Stand Up

In 2015 stand up comic dave johns stared in and began shooting a film by the legionary director Ken loach in the northeast of England.

The film subsequently went on to be one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed films of 2016.  The film and Dave won countless awards and nominations, that film was of course I Daniel Blake.

Dave's brand new stand up show  shines a light on that journey from stand up to movie star and everything in between. 

The title character, played by comic Dave Johns, in a performance of ingrained decency and riveting restraint, is masterful.
