Dave Smiedt– Described by Adam Hills, host of “Spicks and Specks” as “a living breathing joke machine”. David is the author of six humorous books and writes for a wide range of magazines. In fact, he is the only journalist in Australian publishing history to be in concurrent issues of lads-mag Ralph and Your Garden. Topical, charming and equally comfortable in all mediums, David’s comedy will entertain and uplift. If you don’t believe us, listen to what these people have to say…..
