SUMMER 2020 - ANNUS HORRIBILIS

This awful year has seen live entertainment decimated with the closure of venues etc. As we now see the green shoots of recovery then you may wish to know that my various profiles might suit your needs? A successful mix of comedy and music (low volume) in between good chat, banter as well as incorporating my speaking tangent?  Take a look at the Speakers webpage as part of this can enhance a full evening. Ideally suited as a more laid back show for venues that have the correct guidelines as well as private house parties.  The latter can be a similar mix of comedy/vocal with acoustic/unplugged 12 string guitar, as well as catering for song requests - musically geared for 'mature' audiences. References available -please email me for more info and let's all get back to enjoying ourselves again!

Welcome to the Home Page of comedy entertainer

D A V I D     ST     J O H N

More than a comedian!

 

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. This was followed by being lead vocalist and frontman of several pop groups, throughout the Sixties and early Seventies, before going solo 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.  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 34 appearances so far!  Read all about his amazing background as one of the U.K.s most prolific quizzers via Site Map. July 2014- validated in the Guinness Book of World Records, with most TV quiz show appearances! Click these links for more information

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, 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 many more themed segments. Private house bookings are also popular- especially 'surprise' appearances and customised where necessary. Masonic functions are also well-suited, and this is just one of many a e-mails from the organiser:

"David was the after dinner entertainer at our recent Lodge Social Weekend held in Dorking. This was an intimate gathering of nearly 50 guests. David's stories were clean and funny, and which were well supported by a range of songs. What put David a cut above other entertainers was the range of in-depth knowledge he had on every topic that arose. He was a major contributor to our successful event"
