Season 2011



Dave Thornton
A different type of normal

Thursday 26 MAY 2011

Limited tickets available at the door for tonight’s ARTBAR - Dave Thornton show. CASH ONLY.

ARTBAR 2011 will bring you 4 nights of entertainment on a Thursday evening in April through to July where music, comedy, food, drink, people and art come together.

Dave Thornton is a Sagittarian who enjoys long walks in the park and getting caught in the rain. He’s also a successful comedian with performance credits that include the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe and the invitation only Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. He’s even been on TV, with stints on Talkin’ Bout Your Generation, Good News Week and The 7PM Project.

Dave Thornton brings his accessible humour and free flowing style to ARTBAR in May, with his solo show A Different Type of Normal. In 2010, the show sold out in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. And now A Different Type of Normal comes to Perth for the first time.
“Don’t miss this skilfully structured, original show” The Scotsman, 2010. “Plenty of laughs…a thoroughly engaging entertainer”
Adelaide Advertiser, 2010.

Supporting Dave Thornton is one of the 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s most talked about new comedians, Joel Creasey.
