With his accessible humour and free flowing style, Dave’s success as a comic has quickly broadened into a range of performance credits on TV, radio and stage.

Dave has been a guest on Network Ten’s Talkin’ ‘bout Your Generation a regular guest on Good News Week, was a regular on The Circle and has been seen on two Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala’s, as well as being a guest on ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks, Agony Uncles and Agony of Life. You also could have seen him covering various stories for The Project, which has seen him interview the likes of Anne Hathaway, Owen Wilson, Jake Gyllenhall and Andy Murray.

In 2013 you would have seen him each Wednesday night alongside Tom Gleeson, Meshel Laurie and Tommy Little as co-host of Network Ten’s This Week Live. Dave has also appeared in shows such as Channel 9’s smash hit House Husbands and more recently in ABC TV’s Upper Middle Bogan.

2014 is set to be Dave’s biggest year yet landing one of the most sought after breakfast radio slots in the country and aspiring to a podium finish at the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge.

What are you up to now and what is coming up for you?

I’m on radio at the moment with Fifi Box on Foxfm breakfast (101.9). What’s coming up next is my blood pressure when I compete in the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge.

Tell me about your first car?

It was tiny, it was green and it shot lightning bolts; it was Luigi’s car in Mario Cart.

How do you think you’ll go in the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge? What are your expectations?

I don’t want to oversell it but I think after this race I should be competing in the Formula One race for real next year (most likely as a water boy to the pit crew).

If you could choose any other celebrity to be your co-driver in this adventure who would it be and why?

It would be Murray Walker so he could personally commentate my race.

Who is your favourite Formula One driver and why?

It was Juan Pablo Montoya- what a brilliant name to say!!
