Born in Aberdeen to a military family, David’s formative years were spent all over the world in various army camps. David went to a military school Gordons in Surrey, where he learnt the bagpipes and ironically an English accent. The plan was to join the British Army until the last minute when he chickened out and minced off to drama school instead. David plays the bagpipes which has served him well, piping at many events including the Royal Tournament, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Gwen Stefani’s wedding. He also busked in London to fund his training at Drama Centre.
Training at the Drama Centre from 1998 to 2001, David was very lucky to be in the last intake to be trained by the two genius mentors Christopher Fettes and Yat Malmgren. He was there alongside the likes of both Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender and Russell Brand.
After graduating David spent the following years pursuing his love of theatre and Shakespeare, performing the roles of Mercutio, MacDuff, Fluellen in Henry V, in various productions up and down the country.
Fast forward a few years… David is in America, and after telling a string of lies to impress an agent, he found himself performing his very first stand up comedy gig at the Friars Club in Beverly Hills. He’s never looked back and now regularly plays some of the biggest clubs in the country.
David is still an active actor. He was involved in the BAFTA wining comedy Fonejaker and is acting in many films. Clips can be seen on the videos page of this website.
