Dr. Bramwell is a man who likes to keep busy. A magpie by nature, he is a Sony-award winning presenter for BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4, host of Brighton’s Catalyst Club, author of The No9 Bus to Utopia, The Haunted Moustache and The Odditorium, creator of the successful Cheeky Guide series and singer-songwriter in the band Oddfellow's Casino. In 2016 David was a guest on Radio 4's Saturday Live and The Museum of Curiosity, Radio 3's The Verb and Radio 2's The Chris Evans Radio Show. 

As a performer David has toured several solo shows, won awards for 'Best Comedy' and Outstanding Theatre' at Brighton Fringe Festival and, together with fellow musician Eliza Skelton, entertained festival and cinema audiences with “Sing-along-a-Wickerman”. He also co-hosts a popular fortnightly podcast, The Odditorium, with fellow performer, Dave Mounfield which has run as a spoken word tent at Wilderness, Secret Garden Party and Brighton Fringe Festival.

More recently Dr Bramwell has become known for his entertaining lectures and has spoken on such themes as ghost villages, the trickster, utopia, the Italian community of Damanhur and postal pranks for Somerset House, TEDx, The School of Life, 5X15, Idler Academy, Hay Literary Festival, Wilderness, Sunday Assembly and the Lowry Theatre. He is however, at his happiest performing in the back room of a pub.

It is worth noting that David is a medical man by rumour only; approach with extreme caution, particularly if he offers to whip out your tonsils in exchange for a packet of biscuits.
