The Preacher

Performing online to no live audience, comedian David ‘Dave’ Davidson struggles to maintain the momentum in his act. However with effort and a liberal dose of wine, he takes the audience along on his journey to question a seemingly absurd and unfair world.

The Preacher is a digital theatrical performance of the entire Biblical book of Ecclesiastes (Koheleth) framed as a contemporary stand-up comedy show.

'The Preacher' explores the relationship between performance and preaching, and contemporary and ancient wisdom.
