STOP PRESS:  

12th February 2013

A local (Midlands) newspaper- The Express & Star Wolverhampton printed an article on one of my unusual spin-offs as a TV quiz show contestant just over a week ago. I had been asked several times for an interview on my many highs and lows on some 27/28 shows since 1982 with varying fortunes, so relented at last. Within a few days, the story was picked up the national press and embellished into several articles in top rated newspapers such the Daily Mail, The Sun Daily Express, Telegraph and many more.   Just Google 'david st john tv quiz' and you'll find me all over the web- like a rash! Over the last couple of days, the phone has been constantly ringing as many journalists and TV researchers have been calling plus e-mails for requests for more interviews etc.  Quite surprised and amazed at the interest, followed by radio interviews with BBC WM, Wales, Radio 4 and even Spanish radio stations (English for ex pat Brits) with more on the way.  Incidentally, having checked my files- the actual number of TV quiz show appearances is some 30 as a couple were overlooked!

Welcome to the Home Page of comedy entertainer

D A V I D     ST     J O H N

COMEDY and much more !

 

Probably one of the most versatile comedy entertainers in the U.K. today!  Originally from Southampton but now based near Birmingham in the West Midlands - working across the country offering fast-moving stand-up comedy plus impressions, vocals and always adapting his act to suit the type of venue.  Club circuit, hotels, corporate, golf clubs, weddings, holiday centres, cruise work and much more is covered. David’s stage act is a good mix suitable for all age groups, including topical gags straight out of the morning papers!  With prior information he can also ‘personalise’ some of the comedy e.g. company product/services  plus mentioning any ‘characters’ in the audience (diplomatically of course!).

 

He has an amazing background in showbusiness, having started out as a ten year old rock and roll singer in his home town of Southampton followed by being lead vocalist and frontman of several pop groups throughout the Sixties and early Seventies before going solo back in 1972.  You can read all about this on several pages within this website as well as getting an insight into those Golden Days of UK music makers - just check out the Site Map for more information. You might be surprised by the amount of webpages but they cover a very wide spectrum and strongly linked to what David can actually do in any type of show

 

David can work either self-contained and if musicians are available he can also incorporate some 12 string guitar and excellent blues harmonica into the act, apart from the main comedy content.  He is fully experienced, having appeared all over the country and overseas on the club circuit plus corporate, theatre, hotels, cruising, holiday centres, odd T.V. slots etc.  David also spent a number of years working on the Thomson Hotel circuits in Tunisia, Greece and Sicily as resident entertainer. He also produced variety shows, using local entertainers as well as visiting imported UK based cabaret acts. 

 

David also undertook responsibility as entertainments manager at several top hotels with the added bonus of being able to speak conversational French and Greek plus snatches of a few languages, so communication is no trouble with this good all-rounder!  He is experienced in cruising work around the Caribbean and Mediterranean with his comedy act, plus hosting onboard quiz nights, having himself been a very successful contestant on several top TV quiz shows -some 27 appearances to now!  Read all about his amazing background as one of the UKs most prolific quizzers via Site Map.

 

David has worked for most of the top leisure companies including Butlins, Warners, Haven, Thomson, Airtours etc, and is the ultimate professional – on and offstage. Also, he is the perfect choice  as Comedian/Compere/Host for any type of show, running a very smooth night and adapting to any situation!   David St. John has a variety of different comedy acts and routines, varying the material to suit all types of audience, so you can book him with the utmost confidence. He can also supply a list of established agencies who have booked him over several years, in case a reference is needed.  In addition to a 'normal' comedy cabaret spot (50/60 mins) David can also extend his act to cover a full evening with add-on vocals, background music and even a 'mini-disco'.  This 'one man show' is cost effective for smaller venues/tight budgets and he will adapt the material to suit the occasion/theme eg Xmas shows, St Patricks (Irish style) Remembrance Sunday weekend and much more.  British Legion and Ex Services Clubs also include a mini 'Last Night Of The Proms' in amongst military gags, nostalgic music and a lot more themed segments. Private house bookings are also popular- especially 'surprise' appearances and customised where necessary

NEW FOR 2013

A fascinating journey through each year of the Sixties as David combines his many talents of comedy, impressions and vocals plus TV quiz show background (27 appearances since 1982)  as a contestant -see TV quiz shows webpage via Site Map.  A great mix of news, television, movies, gags with no 1 hits of each amazing year as well as more fun for the audience as David throws out questions plus getting some thrown back for more interactive fun.  The songs get everybody joining in and celebrates the whole decade in a really entertaining package.  Mostly geared towards the mature 'Baby Boomers' but a wide age range also enjoys a glimpse back at the Swinging Sixties that will never be repeated as Great Britain ruled the world yet again.  In addition, David can also slot in some extra comedy/vocals and even a 60s 'mini-disco' to make a real party night-even better when people turn up dressed for the occasion in the old clothes!

"Hi David

 Just about everyone that came to your ' back to the sixties night ' had a thoroughly enjoyable time. We were well and truly entertained with music, songs, trivia questions and much more. Your knowledge of music from the period and indeed your general knowledge was outstanding. I am certain we shall want more.

David Neild"
