Award winning Melbourne-based stand-up comedian and performer, David Quirk does a kind of comedy that been described by as "blunt", "brazen" and "brilliant".

For those who like their comedy so dark it's burnt, Quirk's material travels between the profane and profound.

In 2008 Quirk was nominated for the Melbourne Comedy Festival Golden Gibbo Award for his show Kathleen Grace. In 2010 he, together with Sam Simmons, won the award for their two-hander, The Incident, which also toured to Edinburgh. He then starred alongside Sam Simmons in ABC TV's surrealist suburban sketch show, Problems.

In 2013, he wrote and performed the award-winning autobiographical show, Shaking Hands with Danger,which toured Australia, the Edinburgh Fringe and London's Soho Theatre.

Bleeding edge comedy that questions the whole point of comedy itself.
