What happens to a comedian when he’s plucked from obscurity by master film maker Ken Loach and cast in the title role of one of the most acclaimed and talked about British films in recent years?

I, Daniel Blake became a beacon for social realism and, for Dave Johns, a rollercoaster ride of red carpet surrealism. From Cannes to the BAFTAs, chatting to Woody Allen in a lift and accepting awards alongside Hollywood’s greatest…he was there, wide-eyed, through it all. Now, he’s back doing the thing he loves best – making people laugh.

I, Daniel Blake won the coveted Palm D’Or along with 17 other major film awards, while in his role as Daniel, Dave Johns  won Best Actor at the British Independent Film Awards and Empire Awards. I, Fillum Star is a poignant, uplifting and very funny show full of genuine warmth, detailing the improbable rise to glitzy Hollywood stardom of a 59 year old stand-up comic from Byker.
