David McIver is a Nice Little Man is a character comedy show about masculinity, shyness and bravery, brimming with whimsical personas, physical comedy and audience interaction.

Set at a dark and disturbing 18th birthday party, David becomes characters including Andrew Shyman, a shy man, Taz, the masculinity guru, and Sergeant Gunsandbombs, the stand-in army sergeant.

Bridging comedy with clowning, David explores the difficulties he has in expressing himself as a small, shy man and the link between these and his insecurities about his own masculinity.

David McIver’s stand-up has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra, he has written and performed in brand new BBC Radio 1 sketch show The Andy Field Experience (June 2018).

Last year, David was selected for the BBC New Comedy Award 2017 and his 45-minute show David McIver: Stop It, David, We Are Having Too Much Fun was performed to packed rooms in Brighton and Edinburgh.
