Meet Richard D, a born and bred Newcastle-Upon-Tyne native who has been entertaining audiences for over 30 years in various capacities. Despite not being able to do the Geordie accent, Richard has a passion for performing that has led him to act in plays, participate in musical theatreproductions, and play in bands. He has also worked as an audio engineer and, of course, hosted karaoke shows. As Richard writes this bio, he’s somewhat taken aback to realize that he’s been hosting under the GT Entertainment banner for more than a decade now!
Richard’s ultimate goal is to be recognized in the industry for running an enjoyable and engaging show where individuals feel comfortable stepping into the spotlight, secure in the knowledge that the sound will support them, and confident that they will be treated fairly, with the same chance to shine as everyone else. He recognizes that his achievements in this profession would not be possible without the unwavering support of his loved ones, particularly his beautiful and amazing wife, Erica (who, contrary to popular belief, did not write this section), and his good friend Chris, who is always willing to get his hands dirty and do the heavy lifting.
Richard is committed to creating an atmosphere that encourages individuals to let their hair down, relax and have fun. He believes that the key to a great show is not just about the performance but also about the connections and experiences that individuals form with each other. Richard is a natural entertainer with a wealth of experience and is sure to put on an unforgettable show that will leave his audience clamoring for more.
