Dave Turner is an award winning writer who has been making people read his comedy since the Sunday Express published one of his jokes at the tender age of nine.
His first feature script ‘Owen Paul Ruined My Life’ was optioned by Hard Place Productions and his next attempt at funny, ‘Only A Game’, was optioned by It’s Alright Ma Productions. You may recall that you saw neither of these at your local multiplex.
His comedy-drama ‘Is This Music?’ was selected for the TAPS Finding the Writer’s Voice workshop and was a runner-up in the 2008 Red Planet Screenwriting Contest.
He was a finalist in the Son of a Pitch Contest at the 2009 International Screenwriters Festival with ‘In The Name of Light Entertainment’, a story about a murderous children’s television presenter.
For three years he wrote the Army of Dave blog which featured on the websites of BBC News, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, The Huffington Post and FHM. It was named one of the top 10 UK Comedy Blogs by Cision Media.
Dave won the Best Screenplay award at the 2011 London Screenwriters’ Festival with his short film script ‘Everything You Need’.
He wrote the popular @Its_Death Twitter account and ‘The Death Guide To Life‘ website. They have appeared in both Easy Living and GQ magazines and the Metro, Forbes, Time and International Business Times websites.
Dave is currently writing and producing ‘How To Be Dead’, a comic novel and web series about life, death and everything in between.
