David Schneider (born 22 May 1963) is an English actor and comedian.

Early life[edit]

Schneider was born in London, England. He was educated at the City of London School, an independent school for boys in the City of London, followed by the University of Oxford, where he studied modern languages, and studied for a DPhil in Yiddish Drama. During his time at university, Schneider performed a predominantly physical comedy act that contrasted with the trend towards stand-up comedy in live performance comedy in the 1980s. It was at this time that he met Armando Iannucci, who in 1991 recruited him for news-radio spoof On The Hour.
