About David Lamb
David Lamb is a native New Yorker, born and raised, bitten with the writing bug since he was in elementary school and had handwriting nobody could decipher. Like Charles Dickens, David grew up a poor boy in the big city who found that the pen really is mightier than the sword.
In middle school, Lamb’s hero was David Lampel whose velvet voice could be heard reporting the news over David’s grandmother’s radio. Whenever he heard him on the radio, David would substitute Lamb for Lampel and pretend he was delivering the news. Sure that he was destined to be a famous reporter, David was happy to go to a high school with a journalism program. Like most kids, by the time he finished high school he had a whole new career in mind.
After high school, he went to Hunter College and majored in Economics because he wanted to be cool like that college kid who came to speak at his last year of high school. He was an Economics major, he was dressed sharp and above-all, the girls thought he was the man! So like any unreasonable high school boy fueled by overactive hormones, David figured if he majored in Economics, they’d think he was cool.
After finishing college, David went on to law school at NYU, but all the time, writing was still his heart. While working as a lawyer by day, at night he transformed into a writer and eventually wrote and produced the award-winning hit off-Broadway romantic comedy, “Platanos Y Collard Greens.” Being a writer and having the chance make people laugh out loud while challenging them to think about the world around them while inspiring each of us to believe in the power of love. And our own ability to overcome life’s challenges is a great gift that David truly enjoys and thanks you for allowing him to share with you in “On Top Of The World (Until The Bell Chimes).”
