Dave is a number 1 best-selling author, award-winning stand up, presenter & mental health campaigner.
Dave's first Edinburgh show, Normally Abnormal, sensitively used humour to explore his anorexic past. The show received critical acclaim, had sell-out shows and went on a UK tour. As a result, the show was given an award by The UK's Eating Disorder Charity Beat at The Houses Of Parliament in 2014.
In 2015 Dave was asked to give a TED Talk on the topic of eating disorders. This caught the attention of a publisher and he was asked to write a book based on his experiences. This became Weight Expectations a part memoir, part self-help guide aiming to engage, entertain and educate people about anorexia.
He is a stand-in for BBC's Mock The Week & Channel 4's Taskmaster. He is a regular Friday presenter on The Talk Radio Breakfast Show with Julia Hartley-Brewer.
