Oh man, what a night last night was! Couldn't believe I made it through to the final with all the talent that was there last night and then to go on and win was unreal!

I saw Dave deliver gag after gag and it was like a masterclass

Dave Bawden is a rising new star on the circuit after winning Manford’s Comedy Club New Act of the Year 2019  competition, closely followed by becoming the Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year 2019.

Dave only began doing stand-up comedy in March 2018, signing up to a comedy Open Mic night in his home borough, the Wirral, in secret from friends and family.

His career has now well and truly launched, with his slow paced and dead-pan humour, Dave delivers relentless one-liners that teeter on the brink of darkness and play with outright silliness, all delivered with a self awareness that has helped him become a strong new act on the North West comedy scene. In two short years, Dave has won multiple awards, been nominated for the Best Breakthrough act in the North West 2020 and gigged at some of the biggest clubs in the UK.

Describing himself as a low energy, surreal, Northern story teller, he covers introspective and surreal explorations of childhood, family, friends and life.  Hilarious, story based comedy with a very strong delivery.
