David Gould began his musical career as a singer/songwriter performing often in concert. This led to cabaret performances and a variety of work including the Australian Bicentennial production of Australia - The Opera at the Myer Music Bowl. David has appeared as a guest artist on most Australian variety television shows. His venture into the field of comedy in 1987 included a stint at script writing for the Comedy Company and his widely acclaimed character Whispering Kamahl on Australia's most popular light entertainment television show, Hey, Hey, It's Saturday!
In 1992, David performed the role of Caiaphas in the national concert tour of Jesus Christ Superstar and is featured in the multi-platinum Australian Cast recording. He then went on tour with The Gordon/Frost Organisation production of South Pacific in the role of Stewpot, which played throughout Australia and Hong Kong. It is here where producer Simon Gallaher first saw David's talents and it would not be long until David was asked to join the Essgee troupe with their new production of The Mikado. During 1995-96, David played the title role in The Mikado, Essgee Entertainment's national tours of Australia and New Zealand, for which he was nominated for both a Mo Variety Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical and a Green Room Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Following The Mikado was a three-month tour of Essgee's The Pirates of Penzance throughout New Zealand, in which he played the comic role of Sergeant of Police. In 1997 he played the role of Captain Corcoran in Essgee's Australian/New Zealand tours of HMS Pinafore. David was invited to showcase his role of The Police Sergeant for the first time to Australian audiences with the Special Anniversary Production of The Pirates of Penzance and received great success and rave reviews for his very different and innovative interpretation of the character. David has since performed in concert around Australia. David lives in Melbourne with his wife a young son Liam as well as a new arrival on the way in May 2008. David is set to return to the stage in the title role he made his own when he again plays The Mikado for Essgee in 2008.
