“The Dollop” Podcast Tour Stops at the Davidson March 30
Posted: February 26, 2019
In 2014, history buff and comedian Dave Anthony decided to begin a new podcast wherein he would write up an unknown story from American history and read it to a different comedian each week, garnering a spontaneous reaction he hoped would be hilarious. His first guest comedian was Gareth Reynolds. The pair clicked immediately, and fans agreed, flooding social media with their approval. “The Dollop” quickly shot up the charts, drawing fans of both comedy and history to Dave’s wild stories of history and Gareth’s quick improv skills. Now with millions of downloads, “The Dollop” has become a regular presence at the top of the podcast charts, as well as selling out shows in both the US and Australia.
CAPA presents “The Dollop” at the Davidson Theatre (77 S. High St.) on Saturday, March 30, at 8 pm. Tickets are $25.50-$54 and can be purchased in-person at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), online at www.capa.com, or by phone at (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
