SUMMARY

Highly inventive stand-up and character comedian David McIver (as heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra and seen on BBC Three) will perform his debut hour David McIver is a Nice Little Man at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

David McIver is a Nice Little Man is an absurd character comedy show about masculinity and shyness brimming with whimsical personas, riffs, bits and skits. Set at a surprise birthday party, David performs characters including Andrew Shyman (a shy man), Taz (the masculinity guru) and Sergeant Gunsandbombs (the stand-in army sergeant). Borrowing from the worlds of stand-up and clowning, David explores how his role as an under-confident, social anxious 25-year-old beta-male is linked to his failure to inhabit traditionally masculine traits.

David McIver has studied clowning at the prestigious École Philippe Gaulier and hosts the popular London alternative comedy night Oh Boy, Comedy! His stand-up has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, he has written and performed in online content for BBC Three and appeared on Sky Sunrise, representing young performers at the Edinburgh Fringe. His writing credits also include BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack and The Show What You Wrote.

Last year, David McIver was selected for the BBC New Comedy Award 2017 and his 45-minute show David McIver: Stop It, David, We Are Having Too Much Fun was performed to packed rooms in Brighton and Edinburgh where it received rave reviews.

David McIver is a Nice Little Man is directed by John-Luke Roberts.
