“The walls were wet and sticky, and peach juice was dripping from the ceiling. Dave opened his mouth and caught some of it on his tongue. It tasted delicious.”
We’ve successfully navigated another month and the reward comes in the form of a special guest post. This month we have gone for The Fantastic Mr Dave Elliott. We know Dave is a huge fan of Broken Chair (he’s one of very few people who’s come to every single one of our live gigs) and we’re all a big fan of him too. If you manage to see him on stage (you can’t miss him really – he’s the one with the magnificent peachy arse) you are in for a treat! He is a great comedian, writer, improvisor, veal salesman and debutante.
Contrary to rumour in the improv community, Dave was not one of the original Banana Splits. You know Fleegle? Not him.
To celebrate the fact that Dave exists he’s been immortalised in our take on a classic children’s story ‘James and the Giant Peach’ because, who doesn’t love a classic yarn about an orphan who lives with his two cruel aunts and then befriends anthropomorphic bugs who live inside a giant peach? Tell me!
Magnificent! Outstanding! Furry! Full of insects! Yes, many things have been said, by great people, about Dave Elliott’s giant peach. It is only slightly less legendary than Dave’s amazing improv skills.
Some say the best things are behind us, in Dave’s case it’s always true. Check out just a sample of his comedy writing at https://www.facebook.com/DavidElliottsMeaninglessDrivel/
Happy Chairsday everyone!
