Wiki

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

David Schneider is married to Emma Perry, an ex-model and current pottery artist. Schneider studied modern languages at the University of Oxford, 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.

He performed in The Day Today, a television show loosely based on On the Hour. He also appeared in the spin-offs Knowing Me, Knowing You... with Alan Partridge and I'm Alan Partridge where he played the fictional BBC Commissioning Editor, Tony Hayers.
