House of Misery Presents In 2016 David co-founded House of Misery Presents Comedy Theatre Company (HMP) and remains the company’s executive scriptwriter. The group’s mission was to bring theatre to those not usually exposed to it. The Comedy Sketch Quiz utilised the traditional pub quiz as a vehicle to address that mission. The group then made the move to YouTube, where they have produced several short series for the channel, ranging from poetry, music videos and comedy series exploring Northern identity and satirising classic TV genres. HMP now attempts to put a ‘pair of readers’ up to, the often unfathomable, modern world.
