Dave has gained a reputation as an inventive, exciting and extremely funny comedian, winning applause from his audiences, respect from his fellow comics, and rave reviews from the critics.

In 2013, Dave co-wrote a new stage adaptation of The Shawshank Redemption which hit the West End and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He has had two very successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in highly acclaimed shows 'Dave Johns On The Edge' in 1998 and 'I'm in The Attic Mother' in 1999 at the Pleasance Theatre for which he won the Spirit of the Fringe Award.

He has also appeared regularly at the Kilkenny Comedy Festival, in Ireland, Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival. Dave has also worked on stage in the Middle East, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Johannesburg, Sydney, New York, Amsterdam and the Arctic, and has been a regular guest on comedy panel shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.
