Description

Variety and Versatility! Great mix of comedy and vocals where needed, as well as customising the material to suit requirements. The perfect comedian/compere for any type of show as well as offering speaking engagements with two different themes. One talk is on TV quiz shows as I hold the Guinness World Record for most appearances as a contestant from 1982 to 2013 with 34 shows! I was booked as comedian/quizmaster on a cruise booking. The other is a look back over 60+ years on stages, including the 60s/70s as lead singer with pop groups, before launching my solo career in 1972. I have also p ...

DAVID ST JOHN - Clean Stand Up Comedian - Birmingham, West Midlands Event Location: Conservative Club Cannock Staffs Event Type: Cannock 18th November 2022
David provided the entertainment for our annual fish and chip supper on the 18th November 2022. The evening proved to be a great success with David making a huge contribution to our enjoyment. His approach is very flexible and he deftly tailored his routine to suit his audience. His use of audience participation was very much appreciated with requests and sing-alongs. He interspersed his excellent singing with quick fire comedy. Comedy which did not require any bad language or crudity to make it extremely funny. If you want a great evening of entertainment David is your man.

DAVID ST JOHN - Clean Stand Up Comedian - Birmingham, West Midlands Event Location: Burntwood Leisure Centre Staffs Event Type: Outdoor Festival 4th June 2022
David St John was the compere for our Town's big event in 2022 - the Burntwood Jubilee Wakes Festival. We estimate that David entertained around 2,500 people for the all day event, introducing acts, singing, and telling jokes, and keeping the atmosphere going. It was clear that David enjoyed the event, and his enthusiasm was infectious! David had great stage presence, and even off stage he was very engaging. We were also impressed by David's commitment and energy in the run up to the event, as well as on the day itself. He's a great chap to work with.

Dear David, Thank you so much for putting on a fantastic performance. (Afternoon of music, comedy, themed pieces etc) We are so lucky to have you on our books as I can't think anyone else would do a better job. Such a well thought out routine with a brilliant balance of music and speeches which made the day a very special one for the residents, trustees and staff.
