FACT: He is an 'Alternative comedian' who has spent the last 18-months breaking into mainstream clubs, he has succeeded!

This year David Trent will be setting his sights on his children's requests to watch the video for Blurred Lines, his reactions to being snooped on by the NSA, DJ Locksmith, the greatest hype man of his generation, Barrington Irving's inspirational flying classroom and Nick Griffin's move into the arena of cookery to name but five specific things he will be including in his show.

Since last year's show David Trent: This is All I Have, David has co-hosted on XFM radio with his great pal James Acaster, and has hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra's Comedy Club. He is currently writing and performing on Nick Helm's Heavy Entertainment BBC Three show and he has another show being developed with BBC Three alongside James Acaster.
