David’s 1992 stage debut was a reluctant “Open-Mike” appearance at the Funny Bone Comedy Club in St. Louis, MO. It just happened to be a contest. He just happened to win. He was hooked. His brand of physical, high-energy comedy led him to appear on the ABC- TV series “America’s Funniest People”, and later on Comedy Central’s “Comic Justice”, NBC's "Last Comic Standing”. He is currently touring coast to coast and will be appearing on BET’s “Comic-View” in the upcoming season.
David Graham, a six-foot-six teddy bear, will take any event to the next level. David is a clean comedian who hits those hard-to-reach areas of the comedic nervous system. From family discipline to a spell-binding Temptations review with David doing all four-part harmony acappella, it is thievery definition of a "show".
With a head the size of a small SUV, David has developed over three hours of family-friendly comedy material. He even adds keen improvisation for event-specific performances.
David Graham's comedy career has been a non-stop series of events. His very first time on stage was at the Funny Bone Comedy Club in St. Louis, where he unknowingly entered a comedy competition (which he won). The contest win led to the opportunity to open for comedian George Wallace. Graham's twelve-minute set attracted positive press that led to a permanent emcee job at that club. Opening for headliners such as Chris Rock, Adam Sandier, David Spade, Jimmy Walker, Sinbad and a host of others took… Show more his act to an all new level and helped get David noticed by national television. Now, he's a nationally-touring headlining comedian.
