Described by The Guardian as “Like TV Burp if Harry Hill was on PCP”, David Trent has been blowing minds since 2012 with intelligently depicted yet hilariously explosive observations of modern day pop culture.
Smashing on to the comedy scene in 2012 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his debut solo show ‘Spontaneous Comedian’ David Trent wowed audiences and critics alike with his unique brand of tech heavy comedy and high octane audiovisual onslaught, selling out the 26 night run and receiving a nomination for the coveted Foster’s Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Further recognition quickly followed with a run at noted London comedy haunt, The Soho Theatre and another nomination, this time for Best Breakthrough Act at the 2012 Chortle Awards.
David has starred in ‘Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment’, ‘Uncle’, ‘Live At The Electric’ (all BBC Three), Channel 4’s ‘50 Funniest Moments’ of 2012, 2013 & 2014 and ‘Eat Your Heart Out with Nick Helm’ for Dave, as well as a number of online sketches and shorts including Fern Brady’s recent ‘Life Lesson’ for BBC Three and ‘Plane Spotters’ for Turtle Canyon. David has a number of his own television projects in development and is the creator of online prank series ‘Totally Trented’ starring a host of riotous comics.
'His meticulous deconstruction and righteous exasperation makes him a master of the genre' (Chortle.co.uk).
