Dave Benson Phillips – Entertainer, TV Presenter and Children’s TV Elder Statesman

It is a sure fact that most children in the UK have enjoyed being entertained by Dave Benson Phillips who, since 1981, has become one of the most popular children’s entertainers and presenters on and off television.

Dave Benson Phillips, presenter, entertainer, broadcaster, musician, performer and prolific writer and doer of TO-DO lists, started his career in 1981 at the famous Polka Children’s Theatre in Wimbledon where as a Theatre Usher, he was bitten by the performing bug and duly set out to learn the art of entertaining children. He appeared in various magic and music shows and even helped out with the making of props and costumes.
