“One of the best comedians on the comedy circuit.”
“A complete gentleman.”
“The weirdest dude on the face of the earth”.
Having performed stand-up in over 43 countries and four cruise ships, Dave Thompson's deadpan one-liners and absurd persona have seen him gigging for over 20 years! Dave was also, yes this is true, for being fired from the role of Tinky Winky in the world famous children’s TV show, Teletubbies!
He's opened for the likes of Harry Hill, Ronnie Corbett, Bruce Forsyth, Ben Elton, Phil Nichol, Omid Djalili, Stewart Lee, and Jim Tavare!
Dave has acted in four feature films. He played Dave the comedian in 'Maybe Baby', written and directed by Ben Elton, and the porn star in 'I Want Candy', directed by Stephen Surgit (unfortunately his scene didn't make the final edit). Dave's third film 'Huge', was directed by Ben Miller, and was released in July 2011. His fourth film is 'Harry Hill – The Movie'. It was released in December 2013, and stars Harry Hill, Julie Walters, and Matt Lucas.
