All with funny, real and sometimes mind-boggling stories!
Funny, real life stories from behind the cameras filming BBC antiques shows. Meeting and working with celebrities (including almost getting arrested with one particular celeb!) TV disasters, big profits from the world of antiques…and even bigger losses! Fakes, forgeries, fortunes and historical tales…tales, you just wouldn’t believe…This talk is fully interactive with the audience and each show is different to the last.

How To Wear Yellow Trousers!
Confidence…it’s a funny thing
An interactive ‘stand up’ show
Learn how to build (or just pretend) to be confident and change your life for the better!! …with confidence, you can get anything you want. But, be warned… it might bring you some things you don’t!
After a lifetime developing and experimenting with his own confidence (how else do you think he got into TV!) and then several years researching ‘confidence’ David Harper has put together a ‘stand up’ show giving hot tips on how to build your confidence and improve your life.
David has spoken at length to many well known celebrities from the world of sport, TV, music, theatre and stage about their own confidence, how they build it, how they maintain it …and crucially, how, when they need to…how they fake it!
The most important key to success, whether in love, war, business, career, or just being able to leave the house…is Confidence!
Anyone can improve and build their confidence – its just knowing the tricks of the trade…this show, through storytelling (success stories and plenty of disasters!) examples from real celebs and famous historical characters (plus lots of lively audience involvement) will give the audience the tools to improve their confidence levels, which in turn improves life and general happiness levels
Everyone will take something away from the show that will help them with their own self-confidence. Some, so much so, they may even go out and buy themselves a pair of bright yellow trousers!
David is available to host events, compere shows and as one of the best event auctioneers in the UK, David Harper holds a world record after selling dinner with Sir Alex Ferguson!
