Over My Dad’s Body

Simon David is ready to perform his brand new, all-singing, all-dancing show, 'Date Night!' where one lucky spectator will win a date with the star live on stage!

But then his father is diagnosed with terminal cancer. And just months before he dies, writes, performs and films his own one-man show about his illness, mortality and legacy.

Far too juicy to ignore, does Simon follow in his father’s footsteps or continue with his camp cabaret?

Directed by Fringe First winner Chris Larner, this true story about a father and son combines stand-up, film footage and original songs in a show about a show about a show.
