This is Scary Dave. Dave is a well known Performer and Promoter on the UK Comedy circuit,
and is widely regarded as one of the most capable comperes/MCs in the UK.
Dave has performed all over the country for the last ten years,
and has performed in Australia, Ireland, Norway, Greece, and is a regular on the UK festival circuit.
Regularly compereing his own comedy club The Comedy hotspot in Kent, and being a regular compere at Kings of Comedy
in Maidstone, he is also resident compere at Run to the Sun Festival in Newquay, Dave has also appeared at a number of top-spots around the country, including Up the Creek, the legendary circuit haunt Bentley’s Comedy Club, Pearshaped Comedy Club, Kings of Comedy, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Glastonbury Festival, and Beautiful Days Festival as warm-up for Ross Noble.

Audience participation, Characters, Props, Musical comedy, and general nonsence.
