Abstract or description

Common Culture’s videos, I Can’t Go on, I’ll Go On, I Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On (2016), strip down the conventions of televised stand-up comedy routines.

Commissioned by Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, where Dave was exhibited in Nothing Happens Twice: Artists Explore the Absurdity of Life the second part, Karen, was subsequently exhibited in Double Act: Art and Comedy at The Bluecoat, Liverpool.
