Old Woollen: David Eagle Flying Solo

February 1 @ 7:00 pm

£13.50 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show 8pm. Unreserved Seating.

David Eagle is a comedian and musician. He’s a member of three-time BBC Radio 2 folk award-winning band (and Old Woollen favourites) THE YOUNG ‘UNS.

In 2018 David branched out into stand-up comedy and was crowded New Comedian Of The Year at Nottingham Comedy Festival, Bath Comedy Festival and Leicester Square Theatre. Recently he featured on BBC Radio 4’s flagship comedy ‘The Now Show’.

David is blind, and his comedy often explores how his disability means the most ordinary, commonplace events are turned into surreal and convoluted dramas. Occasionally he dons his accordion (often as a spiteful repost to hecklers) and performs one of his comedy songs, such as his George Formby parody, described by the Guardian as “a comic tour de force.”

“David Eagle is a genuine stand up rookie phenomenon! Looking forward to hearing more.” REGINALD D HUNTER

“Just seen the future of stand up comedy and his name is David Eagle” – BOOTHBY GRAFFOE

“Constantly hilarious, gag on gag, leaving an audience gasping in admiration, and applause that goes on for minutes.” – BATH ECHO

Suitable for ages 16+.
