David Armand is an English comedian, actor and writer who has performed on stage, film, radio and most notably, television, where the shows he has appeared in include Fast and Loose (2011 TV Series), How Not to Live Your Life, Pulling, The Armstrong and Miller Show, Swinging, and Peep Show.
Educated at the University of Cambridge and LAMDA, as a member of the sketch comedy troupe The Hollow Men he made appearances at the Edinburgh Festival between 1999 and 2002, travelled to America for the 2003 US Comedy Arts Festival and performed at Montreal’s 2005 Just For Laughs festival. The troupe wrote and starred in their self-titled TV series for Comedy Central and BBC Radio 4.
Armand is well known for his mime-style interpretative dance of Natalie Imbruglia's ‘Torn’: the performance was broadcast in 2005 by HBO Comedy and then spread via the internet. He performed this dance on stage live with Natalie Imbruglia at the 2006 Secret Policeman's Ball for Amnesty International. He has subsequently performed other famous songs, including Paul Young's ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat’ and ‘Don't Look Back in Anger’ by Oasis. In 2011 he appeared on BBC2's improv show Fast and Loose, where he performed an interpretive dance routine to a different song each week. Two cast members had to guess the song title based on his routine. He did a similar thing in July 2012 on the ABC TV show Trust Us With Your Life.
One of the writers and stars of the hit CBBC comedy shows Sorry, I've Got No Head, and Pixelface, he has also written for shows such as The Peter Serafinowicz Show and Katy Brand's Big Ass Show. He has starred as the overenthusiastic Eddie Singh in the BBC Three sitcom, How Not to Live Your Life, and in February 2012 appeared as John in Alan Ayckbourn's Absent Friends at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
