David Acer is an award-winning author, television writer and stand-up comedian. In addition, new scientific research reveals there is an infinite number of David Acers in an infinite number of universes but this one is the tallest. He has had his own special on The Comedy Network and appeared on a multitude of international specials, not to mention live at The Riviera in Las Vegas, The Magic Castle in Hollywood, and 11 times at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. He has also contributed comedic pieces to Reader's Digest Canada and appeared three times on CBC's hugely popular series The Debaters, most recently to discuss the latest thinking on how gravity is trying to kill us all.
But younger audiences (and insomniacs) are more likely to recognize him as “Doubting Dave” from the now-syndicated series Mystery Hunters, which garnered him two Gemini nominations (the Canadian equivalent of the Emmys) for Best Writing in a Children’s Non-Fiction Series, and the publication of his spin-off book, GOTCHA! 18 Amazing Ways to Freak Out Your Friends, now a Canadian bestseller. GOTCHA! also earned David a Hackmatack Children's Choice Award for Best Non-Fiction and a Willow Award nomination, and has since been translated into French and Danish.
On top of all that, David is a world-class sleight-of-hand artist who has performed and lectured for magicians around the globe. In 2009, The Canadian Association of Magicians named him Magician of the Year, and in 2010 he was featured on the cover of the American magic magazine, Genii, the industry's oldest and most respected periodical. He has also had four books of his orioginal tricks published, the latest, called More Power To You, in 2011 by Hermetic Press (Seattle, WA).
In 2013, David joined the creative team at Canada's Spot On Entertainment, producers of the world famous SuperDogs, and has helped them develop 6 live touring shows including Rock & Roll Over, The Science of SuperDogs and a Christmas show called The Muttcracker. These productions have since entertained over 1 million people at arenas across Canada and David is currently developing more projects with Spot On Entertainment.
