the Goon Show LIVE!

David Watkins

David Watkins was our show’s ‘Crooner’ from the beginning in June 2013 until December 2014 when he went on his own travels. He brought to life to life some of the songs featured in various of the Goon Show episodes over the years.

Theatrically 2011 included a principal role touring China in “Kiss Me Kate” for David, and he has also performed in Sydney and Melbourne with “Opera Australia”.

He’s appeared on Australian hospital soap “All Saints”, and alongside Nicole Kidman in Baz Lurhmann’s advertising project for “Chanel No.5” . Again through Bazzmark Productions, he had the opportunity to show off his dancing skills in the ballroom scene in “Australia” , where he entertained the cast and crew by singing with the band between takes.

With a reputation for bringing a sense of fun and slapstick to his performances, David is regularly booked for many profile events  including the Zeta Bar’s 2nd Birthday at Sydney’s Hilton Hotel, and the Wedding of high profile Rugby League Star Andrew Johns.

His Rat Pack performances invoke an authentic classic vibe of the 1960’s Las Vegas, and he supports many charities including the Cancer Council, Legacy and Aged Care.
