A meteoric act in the NZ comedy scene, the Filipino comic recently won the 2016 Billy T James award.

David grew up in Christchurch and after deciding stand up comedy and performing arts was the career he wanted to pursue, David moved to Auckland in 2014 and has been making big strides since the move including being given the "Comic Originality" award at the 2015 Comedy Guild Awards. His style of comedy can be described as a big ball of manic energy that even his body can't keep up with.
