“Baby Dinosaur may just be the best one-man show I’ve ever seen.” – Theatre & Tonic

Critically acclaimed comedian Dave Bibby (Channel 4, BBC, Netflix and Comedy Central) is back with a show about parenthood and dinosaurs.

A parody of those ‘One man Game of Thrones/ Star Wars/ Breaking Bad’ type shows as Bibby sets out to perform this classic 90s movie Jurassic Park in 1 hour but has a baby and simply hasn’t had the time. While Bibby narrates the film it is up to the audience to provide sound effects and deliver some of those killer Hollywood lines.

Fast-paced, packed with gags and equal parts heart-warming and downright silly. A proper fun festival show!


Dave has appeared on various projects for Channel 4, Netflix, BBC Online, Radio 4 and Comedy Central and is one-third of sketch act Lead Pencil. As a writer Dave has written for BBC Radio 4 shows The Show What You Wrote, Sketchorama and Newsjack. Which is nice.
