David is one of the countrys most successful post-alternative comedians and is responsible for some of the most memorable and groundbreaking comedy achievements of the last decade. In 1992, he performed to 12,500 people with Rob Newman in the UKs first ever arena comedy show and was credited as turning comedy into The New RocknRoll long before arena comedy gigs became commonplace.
He created and hosted the phenomenally successful Fantasy Football League (BBC2) with Frank Skinner, which hit the headlines with its transfer to ITV. The show led to David co-writing the double platinum smash hit song, Three Lions for the England football team which went to Number One twice in 1996 and 1998.
David also devised with Frank Skinner the BAFTA, Broadcast Award and Golden Rose of Montreux nominated series, Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned (ITV1). In addition, he wrote and starred in his own sitcom, Baddiels Syndrome (Sky One).
David is the author of two enormously successful and critically acclaimed novels: Time for Bed and Whatever Love Means. His most recent novel, The Secret Purposes, was published in August 2004.
