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 onto 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 audio-visual 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 since been storming the UK’s comedy circuit with entertainment that The Scotsman has described as “a searing blend of live rage and mashed-up video content”. 2013 saw David take his eagerly anticipated second solo show, ‘This Is All I Have’ to the Edinburgh Fringe, which was met with a plethora of brilliant reviews and another invitation to perform at The Soho Theatre. His third offering ‘David Trent: Live At The Pleasance Courtyard’ graced the 2014 Fringe Festival to more critical acclaim.
Alongside his flourishing stand-up career David is also currently starring in ‘Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment’ for BBC Three and has appeared on ‘Live At The Electric’ (BBC Three) and Channel 4’s‘50 Funniest Moments’ of 2012, 2013 and 2014.
David currently 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.
