Dave Johns: I Filum Star

Date:Thu 20 Jul
Venue:Jesus Green

This show takes place in: Cambridge Edition Tent, Jesus Green

What happens to a stand-up comic when he's plucked from the comedy circuit by master film maker Ken Loach and cast in the title role of one of the most acclaimed and talked about British films in the last 25 years?
'I, Daniel Blake' became a beacon for social realism and, for Dave Johns, a rollercoaster ride of red carpet surrealism. From Cannes to the BAFTAs, meeting Woody Allen in the lift of Intercontinental Hotel Cannes and accepting acting awards alongside Hollywood’s greatest … he was there, wide-eyed. Through it all.
