About this show

In an evening that promises up front to be a cloying, wistful, brazenly maudlin affair, Dave and Tom present a look back at the comedy sketches, characters, and monologues that made the eponymous comedy team the corpses they are today. Dave and Tom's: A Tribute to Dave and Tom is made all the more silly by the fact that they claim to have passed away long ago, before the tribute show they are performing has even premiered. Time and your hair will stand on end when these two fictitious blokes salute their departed selves well in advance of their actual demise. As Dave said, or perhaps it was Tom, "Who better to pay tribute to the comedy team, Dave and Tom, who were unappreciated in their time-- or indeed anytime-- than writer/performers Dave and Tom?" Even in death, they are angling for praise. "It is a journey through a stiff body of work that remains funny in obscurity. They shall be forever lost, never mourned," says long time stage manager George J. Vennes III.
