Dave Spikey remains highly sought after in the world of corporate entertainment - with over 25 years experience in the NHS, he's particularly suited to events within the medical field, but with the rare gift of being universal and appealing to all types of audiences, he's the ideal choice for any corporate event, as an accomplished awards host or after dinner entertainer.
Dave is a multi award-winning performer and one of the most sought-after comedy talents in the UK. With a career spanning two decades, he has numerous TV appearances to his name as a stand-up comedian, presenter and actor - and behind the screens, as an acclaimed comedy writer.
Dave's journey into show business began in 1990. After winning the 'North West Comedian of the Year' Award, he became a regular on the club circuit and once famously supported Jack Dee, Max Boyce, Cannon & Ball and Eddie Izzard all in the space of one week - all whilst continuing to hold down his day job as Chief Biomedical Scientist in Haematology at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
In 1996, TV comedy history was made when Dave met Peter Kay. Sharing a similar approach to comedy and writing, they went on to form a formidable partnership; collaborating on numerous TV shows including Ch 4's hit series 'That Peter Kay Thing'. Inspired by this success Dave finally took the plunge and gave up the day job. Within twelve months he'd fulfilled his dream of writing a comedy series by co-writing and co-starring in Ch 4's critically acclaimed Phoenix Nights alongside writing partners Peter Kay and Neil Fitzmaurice
