They met in 1986 in the local cinema and in '88 set up an alternative comedy magic cabaret act. They were persuaded to become children's entertainers when a mum rang in desperation one morning because her magician had dropped down dead and she was panicking at the thought of thirty 6 year-olds descending on her house that afternoon!
In May '94 David & Katie's Fairy Tale Wedding in Walt Disney World received a lot of media coverage and as a result they appeared regularly on TV over the next two years to promote Florida holidays for the Disney Company.
David & Katie have done a lot of TV and voiceover work and have appeared on their favourite shows 'Pointless' and 'Bargain Hunt'. But they concentrate on the 300 children's shows they do each year.
Over 90% of their bookings are from word of mouth and returning customers. They have worked everywhere from The Tricycle Theatre, Kilburn to Brookwood Cemetary and St. James's Palace to Julie Walters' living room.
They live in a house with two Bengal cats - Stan & Ollie, a pair of tortoises and a small pond full of big fish.
