After a successful visit to The Olympia Theatre last year – David McSavage is back for 1 night only on Friday 8th February 2019.
David McSavage is a self proclaimed national treasure. It has been said he is to comedy what the Abbey is to theatre. Maybe because he believes he's more important than he is, or that the majority of the country doesnt care about him.
But unlike the Abbey theatre Davids best days aren't behind him, his intention for this new show which he has yet to write is for you the audience member to feel "wow that was one of the funniest things Ive ever seen, it was so original, courageous, and yet very flawed. I would really like to be his friend"
