David Mills is a London-based American actor, comedian and cabaret performer who won the Hackney Empire’s New Act of the Year competition in 2011. He has performed at venues all over London, the UK and in the US.  He’s opened for Ed Byrne, Margaret Cho and Scott Capurro and performed his solo shows at venues such as Soho Theatre, Leicetser Square Theatre, Oval Theatre, Crazy Coqs and the St James Theatre to name just a few.  He’s taken six shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

He appears with Meryl Streep in the 2016 film Florence Foster Jenkins as Augustus Corbin and with Bennedict Cumberbatch in Patrick Melrose (Showtime, US), as well as having various other stage and screen credits.

David has just returned from the Edinburgh Fringe where he performed his new show FOCUS PEOPLE! at The Underbelly.

A superior act. Mills is an archduke of comedy with the emphasis on ‘arch’.

CHORTLE

David Mills is a class act. His jokes are beautifully crafted, sparkling little missiles loaded with wit.

SCOTSMAN

Darkly funny, bristling with sharp-tongued satire and incisive wit.

FEST MAG

Like the sharp-suited lovechild of Larry Grayson and Dave Allen, Mills combines laid-back storytelling with acerbic wit.

BROADWAY BABY

Mills deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Dave Allen. A legend in the making.

FRINGE REVIEW

David Mills is heading for the big time. Most definitely one to watch.
