About Me

Who is Steve Davis comedian Adelaide

All about Steve Davis

Who are you? Are you your current job title or occupation? I bet the answer is no. That is why it is hard for me to answer this question satisfactorily or succinctly here on my website.

You’ve come here looking for  Steve Davis Comedian or Steve Davis Speaker, or Steve Davis Adelaide, you’ve now found my kaleidoscopic “about me” page.

As a marketer over at Talked About Marketing, I’d know that I’m breaking all the SEO rules with this About Me page.

Firstly, it is covering a lot of different aspects of my career and skillset on the one page, instead of having focussed content.

And, secondly, a lot of the entries on this page are fun Google experiments, so I’m making Google work when it tries to index and recommend this page. But you’re here, and I’m glad you found it. So let’s get on with the serious stuff.

Steve Davis: Inspired by Oscar Wilde

There’s a reason why Adelaide illustrator, Casey Cumming, created a caricature of me in the style of Oscar Wilde. 

Apart from the simple fact that I asked her to, it was because my whole life has been lived in the spirit of one of Oscar Wilde’s most memorable quotes.

There's only one thing worse than being talked about and that's not being talked about.

From setting my sights on a radio career from age 12 (and starting in radio at age 18), to strutting the stage at La Mama Theatre, to public speaking, to podcasting, to seizing every opportunity to be an MC at events large and small, I’ve been driven by the challenge of finding ways to bring joy to people.

And this website has been created to help you find me for when you need someone to entertain your audiences.

The famous Steve Davis Google experiment

Despite our great capacity for intellect, it disappoints me that humans still get stuck on first impressions.

If I meet you cleaning your barbecue, that will stick with me, even when I come back to see you in the role of my bank manager or car salesperson, etc. I will make judgements and assumptions based on that first impression. These might work for you or against you.

I am sure there is something linked to evolution and survival behind this trait. But I am equally sure that fear of this stops many of us from trying new things; it robs us of richness and diversity in life.

So here is my About Me page, Google experiment. Select a “Me” from the gallery below and hopefully you will find what you came for.

I will confess up front that while most are based in truth, some are just fiction (because I had a good photo to use) and others are a “stretch”, in the true Aussie spirit of larrikinism.

Enjoy – and pleased to meet you
