David Kerr is the BAFTA-winning director of some of Britain’s most iconic comedies:

His upcoming project, STAGS, is a pitch black comedy drama (think The Hangover meets Midnight Express) set in South America - and coming to Paramount + in Autumn 2024.

“Are We The Baddies?” (Nazis) is the sketch that launched a thousand memes and helped David win Best Comedy BAFTA for THAT MITCHELL & WEBB LOOK.

As lead director of FRESH MEAT (C4/Hulu), co-written by Jesse “Succession” Armstrong, David set the show’s style and picked the cast. Fresh Meat won six awards, including RTS for Best Comedy.

David directed all six films in the first series of INSIDE No.9, the anthology described by The Times as “the funniest, cleverest, most imaginative and original television.” 

From a script by Russell T. Davies (and Shakespeare), David crafted a radical, RTS-winning film of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM starring Matt Lucas and Maxine Peake.

ROALD & BEATRIX, David’s film about two of Britain’s best-loved children’s authors starring Dawn French, Rob Brydon and Bill Bailey won Best TV Movie at the Banff World Media Festival.

David helmed all nine episodes of MAN Vs. BEE, the Emmy-nominated Netflix global hit starring a CG bee - and Rowan Atkinson.

David also directed Rowan in JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN for Working Title / Universal. Co-starring double Oscar winner Emma Thompson, the film was 2018’s highest-grossing comedy at the international box office.

David’s TV commercial work includes Christmas epic THE STORY OF LIDL BEAR, a US/global campaign for SPOTIFY  and award-winning films for FARROW & BALL, Smart Energy, and Evolve Gun Control. Recent work includes “Boyfriend”, introducing Rana fresh pasta to the UK; an acclaimed ARGOS spot starring Suki Waterhouse; and MAKE MY MONEY MATTER, starring Jason Isaacs and co-written by David with comedy legend Richard Curtis.

Based in London, David’s a member of the DGA, holds British and Irish passports and a current 0-1 US visa.
