Dave Longley

MC Dave Longley


David Longley is a difficult comedian to define; on the one hand, abrasive, crude and insulting and on the other, articulate, intelligent and disarmingly funny. Longley's towering stage presence and intensity, combined with cutting wit and intelligence have made him one of the most popular and controversial circuit comics in the UK, whether it's doling out thought-provoking insights or revelling in toilet humour Longley is a gifted wordsmith with great audience interaction skills.

One of the few comics able to play to any audience without compromising on his material, David Longley can delight a hen party and the comedy connoisseur on the same night.

Appearing regularly at The Glee, Jongleurs, Highlight, The Stand, Baby Blue and The Frog and Bucket, Dave is a "uniquely fascinating act".


“Highly original and bloody funny” - Three Weeks

“Proves that comedy can say something important and, crucially, still be funny” - Metro

“Acid tongued and as sharp as a barrel full of tacks… As intense and intelligent performer as you're likely to see” - The List
