As lead director on both the first and second series of Channel 4′s Fresh Meat, David Kerr set the style and assembled the cast for a show described by The Sun as “brilliant new comedy drama” and by The Guardian as “smart, sympathetic and pretty much adorable from the get-go.”
Fresh Meat Series 1 was named Best New Comedy at the British Comedy Awards, Best TV Show at the NME Awards and Best Scripted Comedy at the RTS Awards. Series 2 has again won Best TV Show at the NME Awards and is nominated for the RTS Award.
David has been nominated twice for the BAFTA Best Comedy Award.
He won the BAFTA in 2007 for Series One of That Mitchell & Webb Look, described by The Guardian as “the best sketch show in a decade,” and by The Hollywood Reporter as “uproarious and cleverly cheeky.”
David has worked with some of the biggest names in British comedy, including Steve Coogan, Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Alan Davies, Vic Reeves, Johnny Vegas and Jack Whitehall.
David recently completed the acclaimed BBC Christmas Campaign with Rob Brydon and a star-studded series of horror comedies for BBC2. Inside No.9, written by and starring Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith of League of Gentlemen fame, will be broadcast later this year. It will also mark the return to television for the first time in five years of Gemma Arterton.
