Dave Thompson

One of our big interviews for Issue Seven (the other being with Joshua Glenn) is with travelling comedian Dave Thompson.

Dave is a stand-up comedian, novellist and clown. He’s been on TV a lot, often with Ben Elton and Harry Hill projects, and he was also one of the famous Teletubbies.

I first interviewed Dave as research for my book about comedy, You Are Nothing. I enjoyed talking to him so much that I decided to invite him for another chat, this time for New Escapologist.

As a comic, he lives a very mobile life, performing all over the world, so he’s a great person to talk to for our On the Lam-themed issue. Pre-order the issue here. It’s due for release any moment now.


Robert Wringham is the editor of New Escapologist. He also writes books and articles. Read more at wringham.co.uk
