When talent is bestowed, it is bestowed in spades. This is most certainly true for David Southworth, also known as “Lumpy Da Comedian”. The thirteen year old first got his start at the early age of eleven in the comedy industry, through the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp where he was tutored and nurtured by Jamie Masada and a list of other Celebrity Comedians.
Jamie Masada seemed to have noticed that David Southworth not only has immense talent, but stands out in the crowd. David was invited by James Masada three months after his graduation from the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp, to open several shows with recognised comics such as Dane Cook, Paul Rodriguez, Dom Irrera, Ahmed Ahmed, Ruben Paul, PK, Mindy Rickles and many others at the same venue.
After performing numerous shows at the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp, Lumpy performed an “Open Mic” at the HaHa Comedy Club located in North Hollywood. The owners of the HaHa Comedy Club namely Jack, Terri and Jack Jr, started pushing Lumpy into contests which he won every time. This convinced the owners to allow Lumpy to eventually open for some big shows at the HaHa Comedy Club.
Lumpy gained a good reputation and eventually started opening for some of the biggest shows at the biggest venues such as the Hollywood Improv, Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, Ice House, HaHa, Flappers and many others around Los Angeles and in other cities in Southern California. Lumpy's new found fame has led him to star in National Commercials and a newly completed pilot for Fox's incubation project on "Party Over Here" Productions (Andy Samberg's Production Company).
David “Lumpy” Southworth was also invited for a live interview on Channel 5 News stationed in San Diego. With Lumpy's incredible success and his achievement as the youngest comedian ever in the United States to headline a Major comedy club. At just thirteen years of age, David “Lumpy” Southworth is well on his way to further his footprint in history, but yet hopes to achieve far more than he has accomplished.
