David Ward shocks and delights at Edinburgh Fringe 2007

David Ward premiered his first solo show The Whole Truth and Nothing But... at the Edinburgh Fringe this year to great critical acclaim. His show - at the famous Pleasance Courtyard - generated great press playing to packed and often full houses throughout the festival. Telling his amazing life-story, from golfing to gambling and from jailbird to joker, David Ward, already one of the most sought-after comperes and comedians on the circuit, told his tale through powerful storytelling and acting, which mesmorised audiences day after day with a mixture of both tears and laughter. Watch this fast rising act as he breaks new ground.

What The Press Said

“observant, engrossing … a skilful bit of storytelling …Ward has an interesting tale to share, and the audience remains engaged because they want to hear it. In the telling, he proves himself very good company” Chortle.co.uk

”This poignant and moving show about a man's struggle through his gambling addiction, time in prison, and various relationships, is not the comedy I expected, but rather a retrospect that is darkly funny, in that way life can be. His observant nature is an excellent tool for both his comedy and his reflections, and … Ward proved to be a skilled storyteller, able to take the audience with him as he spoke honestly about all he has been through. …If you want a show that speaks with honesty, and with an added slice of black humour, you won't be disappointed.” Three Weeks
