Dave Fulton

There is not a comic on the planet who sounds like Dave Fulton – an angry American with a chip on his shoulder, a drawer full of jokes, and a commandingly hoarse croak to deliver them in. A longtime resident of the UK, his work is that of a detached, cynically observational outsider.

There is not a comic on the planet who sounds like Dave Fulton – an angry American with a chip on his shoulder, a drawer full of jokes, and a commandingly hoarse croak to deliver them in. A longtime resident of the UK, his work is that of a detached, cynically observational outsider.

In the words of Time Out London, Fulton represents “the tough talking, risk-taking school of yankee comics – intelligent, remarkably relaxed on stage and clearly out to create a bit of mischief.” Alight, then. In his own words, Fulton started in comedy “when it was popular and profitable – and decided to stay on past the point of when it wasn’t”. Well, he still got to warm up for both Michael McIntyre and Jack Dee. Pulling material from his chequered, crazed life, expect to hear about near-death experiences, rampant hedonism and movie-like cliffhangers. Weirder moments include being detained under the terrorism act and surviving an avalanche. Hope to hear about both. Once described by Comedy Central as “looking like the underfed brother of Billy Connolly”, Fulton brings the swagger of a veteran and the humility of a survivor, a kind of rugged comedic cowboy – ironic, embittered and ready for one more crack of the whip.
