Piano - Comedy
Born in Australia David enjoyed dual but separate careers as a concert pianist and actor, on stage, in films and on television. Moving to Britain in the 1980s he soon found himself starring in the famous News Revue in London’s West End. Other offers followed, including the lead in the musical, Stepping Out. Whilst starring in another revue his fellow cast members coerced him into trying his hand at a solo show, combining his musical skills and exceptional talent for mimicry. What started out as a one-night dare completely turned David’s career around. His first one-man shows soon blossomed into a smash hit, ‘Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player’, which toured the world for 15 years. Don’t Shoot Me… sold out in West End, then at 3 consecutive Edinburgh Festivals, and led to David being a regular on the top-rating BBC Radio and TV shows, Stop the Week and The Garden Party. By the time David returned to Australia his tally of TV and radio appearances topped 1000. David has often been compared with the late, great Victor Borge. “A master of the keyboard” The Times, Critics’ Choice, London.
