Home Biography TV & Radio Theatre Cabaret Cruising Clips Mail

Television, radio, nightclubs, hotels, theatres and cruising are all elements of an absorbing and auspicious career.

Dave is an international entertainer who has performed and delighted audience all over the world in top class venues.

Frequently heard on BBC and independent radio, his TV appearances include Funnyman, Blake's 7, Pebble Mill, Bushell On The Box, GMTV, National BBC Children in Need and Scandinavian C4's Performance.

Dave began his career in the obdurate working men's clubs of the North East where he quickly established himself on the clubland circuit, winning several awards, leading to a role in Newcastle Breweries Centenary Spectacular where he was spotted by London Entertainment giants Mecca Agency International and subsequently began performing on their reputable UK nightclub circuit.

Hotels soon became an integral part of a busy diary with venues such as Grosvenor House and the Hilton in Park Lane, culminating in three highly successful years headlining at the Sheraton Hotel, Heathrow.

Cruising was next and Dave was soon a regular guest artist on celebrated cruise lines such as Cunard, P&O and Chrystal. Indeed he was only one of a handful of acts chosen to perform on the 5 star luxury yacht Sea Goddess, sailing on the Italian and French Riviera. The summer of 2004 saw him performing on the world's newest and most prestigious liner Queen Mary 2 when he was chosen as the headline act during the ship's stay in Athens for the Olympic games.

Cabaret clubs such as Savva's and Lakeside were soon part of a hectic schedule and after supporting comedian Jim Davidson at one such gig he was offered the role of Dandini in Jim's lavish pantomime 'Cinderella' at Bradford Alhambra. Since then Dave has repeated the role, albeit in a 'different way' in the record breaking adult version 'Sinderella' which played to sell out crowds at all major theatres throughout the UK, including two West End seasons. 2005 saw the sequel 'Sinderella Comes Again' repeat the success of the original both in the theatres and on the best selling DVD. Another national theatre tour was as 'The Comedian' in the hit musical tribute show 'Dusty'.

More than 30 years on and Dave's unique, confessional style of comedy is still in great demand in theatres, Hotels and on the Corporate Market while he continues to top the ratings for numerous Cruise Companies.
