Hello. My name is David.

'One of my highlights of the fringe' **** (Scotsman).
'Far more original than many big comedy names' **** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).
'He really hits the mark, and scores' **** (TheReviewsHub.com).
'Smart, rich, hilarious storytelling, underpinned by some fantastic jokes, give the really gifted comedian a rightful place as one of the freshest emerging talents' (Narc). 'Very funny routines' (Chortle.co.uk).

'An impressive performance...delivering self deprecating routines with a captivating, Kitson-esque lilt' - Gigglebeats

'Callaghan does an excellent job...undeniably charismatic and witty' - Chortle


I will try and keep it updated as much as possible.

Here's my fringe show for 2016.

Hi guys, I've been doing a fair amount recently but I've not really put much of it up here. I'm doing my photoshoot this week for my new fringe show 'Lets Get This Partly Started', so I'll have print stuff soonish. Its part Stand up show, part Planetarium Experience. I've bought this acrylic hemispheric mirror (see photo), and using projectors on it, I can create an indoor planetarium. God I hope it works.

You can see the second test of it by clicking here - Planetarium

A Quest To Stardom is going to The Customs House

We've been asked to bring our anarchic DIY panel show all the way to South Shields. Me, Lewis, Sammy and Hal are very excited about it and have lined up some of the best comedy talent in the North East for the evening.
