While writer/actor/musician Dave Eastgate is recognisable from his television roles in Doctor Doctor, A Moody Xmas, Soul Mates, Ronnie Chieng: International Student & Here Come The Habibs, stand-up comedy remains his staple.
He tours extensively around Australia and internationally in NZ, UK, US, Singapore and even in the Middle East for the Australian Defence Force. In 2012 Dave shared the stage with Academy Award Winner, Robin Williams during his Australian tour and considers it a career highlight. Other highlights include playing sold out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011 & 2012 & performing at the UK's biggest heavy metal festival Download in 2012. In addition to this Dave has supported touring international comics such as Arj Barker, Rich Fulcher, Jim Jefferies, Jeff Ross and Ross Noble. Dave has appeared as a stand-up comedian on Channel 9’s Mornings, SBS’s The Full Brazilian, Channel 10’s Thursday Night Live and the Comedy Channel’s Stand Up Australia and Just For Laughs at The Sydney Opera House.
Dave has truly cemented himself as one of the best live comedy acts in the country. It’s this reputation that landed him gigs as the audience warm-up for Big Brother, Australian Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars, Australia’s Got Talent, The X-Factor & The Voice. His corporate clients now include Westpac, NAB, McDonald’s, P&O, Jim Beam Global, Microsoft Australia, Virgin Mobile (UK), Irun Bru (UK), Blundstones, ALH Group and The Gold Coast Titans Rugby League Club.
