David’s background in entertainment started as the lead role in a grade four production of “Bartholomew and the Oobleck” at Bedford Park School in Toronto. His next step was behind the scenes as stagehand in a grade eight play at Crescent School. He developed a great interest in magic at the age of thirteen and performed his first magic show at a family friend’s birthday on April fools day 1976. He got a lot more serious about entertainment and was bitten by the bug after starting Drama classes while attending high school at Lawrence Park Collegiate. After high school David started with the Second City workshops and soon tried his hand at stand up comedy on amateur night at the local comedy club. After “killing” on his third night he has never looked back. He has since performed over 7000 shows in twelve different time zones and been on over 70 TV shows. David’s latest project was hosting the new (golf) long drive high energy TV show “THUNDERBALL”. It shot on location in front of 1000 people at the Las Vegas National golf club in October and is currently being shopped and will soon air on a US national network. * Voted Best “VARIETY PERFORMER” Northeast Corporate Entertainment Awards (NYC) * Nominated BEST “ONE MAN SHOW” Category Canadian Comedy Awards* Voted “CLUB COMIC of the YEAR” Canadian Comedy Awards.
