David Alnwick is a magician, actor, and horror writer with a passion for using magic to tell scary stories.
After graduating from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in 2010 with a (BA) Acting degree, he travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe festival and performed his first show. Over a decade later, David has performed sixteen one-man shows, three national tours, and one TV Special.
In 2013, David co-wrote his first horror play debuting at the Edinburgh Fringe festival the same year. In 2019, David's one-man show 'Actual Magic' explored the affect Alzheimer’s disease had on his relationship with his grandfather. The show became a word-of-mouth hit, with full houses for the entire three-week run, receiving rave reviews.
