G&S Engineering Comedy Club

Dave Thornton has built a global reputation for his honest, engaging, whip-smart and damn funny comedy. He’s stormed the world’s three major comedy festivals and back home, Dave is a hot ticket across the country, filling thousands of seats with a growing army of fans.

Dave’s TV credentials include hosting Channel 9’s 20 to 1, appearances on Network Ten’s The Project and This Week Live, as well as ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks and Agony Uncles. He’s even tried his hand at acting, appearing on Channel 9’s House Husbands and ABC TV’s Upper Middle Bogan.

Dave spent four years co-hosting Fox FM’s Breakfast radio show alongside his good friend Fifi Box, which he decided to wrap up in 2017. In 2018, Dave will be touring the country with his brand-new show, So What Now?
