One of the UK's top comperes, Windsor is a first class host with a natural charm and warmth, along with an enviable ability to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in any room.
By transferring his street experience of audience control and off-the-cuff humour, Windsor became a highly skilled and supremely professional comedy circuit compere almost overnight, with an extraordinary ability to warm up a show and keep it running at a high quality level. In addition, top quality material makes him a top-notch act.
'Windsor warmed-up and flushed out the hecklers... A skilled compere, Windsor delivers hot material with a rare skill' (The Stage)
'A very good act with excellent control of his audience' (Melbourne Age).
Windsor tour dates
Highly-acclaimed Geordie stand-up comedian with numerous TV and radio credits to his name. An expert in the delivery of in-yer-face comedy, Dave's high-energy routine has left audiences around the globe gasping for breath and crying with laughter.
In 1989 Johns’ launched the Comedy Café on Westgate Road and invited the emerging Jack Dee and Jo Brand to appear, but realising they needed an MC stepped-up and did it himself. Finding he was rather good at it and pricing tickets at £3.75 including soup and a bun, the club became a city hot spot and Dave went on to host many more comedy stars including Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Harry Hill and nervous 14 year old lad called Ross Noble who went on to do rather well for himself.
Johns became a successful comedian, touring throughout the UK, a regular with the Comedy Store Players and appearing on much loved TV shows like Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of Ten Cats.
'He performs comedy's greatest magic, simply by being himself. A genuinely funny, engaging performer' (Glasgow Herald)
'He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye - an extremely entertaining hour' (The Guardian).
Dave Johns tour dates
Excellent comedian from Edinburgh who has appeared frequently on TV.
For over a decade Dan’s twisted logic has been gladdening Stand-Up Comedy audiences across the UK and Ireland. He’s also performed his accessible but frequently childish surrealism in front of chubby perspiring ex-pats in Dubai and Oman, and had his grammar rectified by politer crowds in Germany and Holland.
'Original and Inventive' The Times

The Harlesden 'ruude bwoy' of Comedy, his charming, cocky style enables him to perform comedy whilst sporting a moustache.

'Irresistible... he's going to be massive' (The Guardian)

'Easily the funniest new comic I've seen this year' (GLR)
