Description

Steve's dad died of Alzheimer's. There's nothing he can do about it except remember him the way he was. Steve has also been deaf since his teens but has new hearing aids so now he's gone through all the music of his youth. It reminds him of his dad. There's nothing else for it but to defy dementia, with music, songs and laughter. Laugh, cry, sing along if you want. If you like bittersweet comedy about deafness and memory loss, then this is the show for you. Previous shows were rated ***** (Chortle.co.uk).

Accidentally stumbled upon this having got dates wrong for another show. Steve had me on the verge of tears only to deliver a punchline and laughter. Well worth seeing! Even as too young to get ~all~ the references, I could relate through my parents and grandparents and grief from a vanishing family member.

Dementia isn't usually a laughing matter but Steve's affectionate stories about his dad and his reflections on their relationship make this a show not to be missed. Poignant, funny and life-affirming.

Thoroughly enjoyed this genuine, heart felt, hilarious show. I found myself welling up and laughing within the same minute. Truly a great comedian and worth the time.

Tears of laughter and joy, sadness and nostalgia. Great show, looking forward to seeing my dad again soon.

Stumbled across Steve Day's- adventures in dementia at the lock up 2 on Cowgate. Thoroughly enjoyed his show and would highly recommend, a really genuine amusing guy and certainly the best deaf comedian you'll ever see!
