David Kay is an exceptional comic. Nowhere in the country, will you find anyone with such slow, quirky, unorthodox style, and such a unique blend of extra-ordinary observations and ultra-ordinary situations. David is one of the most original, imaginative, surreal and – most importantly – downright funny comics currently performing in Scotland.
David is no stranger to the Edinburgh festival and has been performing at Edinburgh every year since 1998.He followed up a critically acclaimed solo show debut solo Fringe Show at the 2002 Edinburgh Festival , “David Kay : Some Like a Scone” with “David Kay : Fireball”. He is a regular at the Glasgow Comedy Festival performing sell out solo shows in 2006, 2009 and 2010.
David can also be seen acting in TV comedies The Old Guys (BBC1 Network), Rab C Nesbitt (BBC2 Network) and Tank Commander (BBC2 Scotland).
David has continued to move from cult performer to fully-fledged phenomenon on the comedy scene. With two appearances on BBC1’s Live Floor Show and two tours of the Scottish Highlands as part of The Best of Scottish Comedy show and The Stand Comedy Club Highland Tour , his act has gone from strength to strength as it reaches the parts that most comedians fear to tread.
Bizarre but accessible, slow-paced but quick-thinking, David Kay is one of the most unique – and certainly most hilarious – acts on the circuit today
