Arnold Street Gallery will host a second exhibition by writer and comedian Bryan Dawe.

Dawe – best known for his satirical work with John Clarke – said he enjoyed touring rural areas and returned to Arnold Street after a successful show in 2017.

“I made a conscious effort to go to rural cities. I prefer those rural surrounds. When I perform, I’d much rather perform to a rural audience than a blase city crowd,” he said.

“Rural people tend to know about most things and certainly have an opinion on everything. I rather like that, it's refreshing.”

Improvise features a combination of digitally-edited photographs and original drawings from Dawe’s time in Tangiers earlier this year.

“I wanted to tell a narrative of some of the place I love in Tangiers,” he said. “I enjoy Morocco because I get inspired by the place and have good friends there now. It’s a much simpler culture.”

Improvise opens at the Arnold Street Gallery on Saturday, August 11, and is on until August 26.
