TV Presenter – David Harper

David Harper here. I’m a BBC TV antiques presenter on shows like Bargain Hunt and Antiques Road Trip and I have my first one-man stand up show now on!

I’ll be at The Victoria Hall in Settle on the 10th November

The show is called ‘Unexpected Tales’ It’s an improvised, audience led (form of questions) show and each one is different to the last – I tell funny stories from behind the scenes making TV shows, strange situations, working with odd celebrities, big profits, even bigger losses, shockers, historical adventures and disastrous TV appearances!
