Probably still best known as an actor/writer on TV shows such as I’m Alan Partridge and The Day Today, David now spends most of his time on the other side of the camera. He directed all three series of Josh Widdecombe’s sitcom Josh for the BBC and co-wrote Armando Iannucci’s new movie The Death Of Stalin, for which he has been nominated for a BAFTA for Best Screenplay, along with a host of other awards.
A social media obsessive with over 400,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter (not that he’s counting), David founded the social media company That Lot in 2013. Their clients include Channel 4, B&Q, Fox TV, Jamie Oliver, Investec and many more. His work for That Lot includes writing and directing videos for social, many of which get views in the tens of millions. He also directed Channel 4’s award-winning Snapchat drama (a world first) to accompany their new show Ackley Bridge and is developing a series of TV-style comedies for Facebook. David gives keynote speeches on social media and on comedy to corporate clients and at high-profile conferences such as the Websummit and Social Media Week.
He is presently writing a TV series about the Brexit vote for Channel 4.
