With his hilarious satirical Poetry along with lovely personal anecdotes, Eric Davidson is without doubt one of the finest speakers on the After Dinner circuit.
He was raised in that Cultural Cul De Sac, the Creme de la Skimmed Milk of all Scottish mining villages, Newtongrange. He now lives with his wife Jackie and two young daughters in the Midlothian village of Pathhead.
Even at the tender age of 11, Eric knew he was bound for stardom. His Stylophone rendition of Chuck Berry’s ‘My Ding-A-Ling’ took the Newtongrange Church Opportunity Knocks competition by storm.
In his teens he tried Ventriloquism, but ended up too heavy for the guy’s knee
After a spell at thrashing a drum kit around for a local Punk Rock band, Eric started writing and performing comic Poetry. Eric has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a string of hit shows for the last 15 years.!
