As an already accomplished author and journalist, David Smiedt began delighting audiences with his brand of warm and inclusive stand-up comedy in the mid-naughties. Now he is a regular fixture on both the the Australian comedy circuit and in print in all the top selling Australian magazines and even manages to produces a new book every couple of years.
David is very versatile. In fact, he is the only journalist in Australian publishing history to be in concurrent issues of lads-mag Ralph and Your Garden.
He has penned six humorous books, he is an outstanding MC and was described by Adam Hills as “a living breathing joke machine”.
