Acting

David is filming a regular role in the second series of STATH LETS FLATS Series 2 over the summer of 2019.

He can now be seen in a lead role in the new comedy series from the creators of PEEP SHOW for Channel 4 - DEAD PIXELS - and in the lead role of Mario in Dave's hilarious new sitcom, SLICED.

Recent credits include a lead role in comedy drama, DEATH ON THE TYNE, for UKTV and a role in Paul Feig's upcoming LAST CHRISTMAS.

Over the summer of 2017, David played Fabien in JOHNNY ENGLISH 3. Before that he filmed a small role in the latest MISSION IMPOSSIBLE film. Before that, he played a lead role in comedy-horror, GAME OVER.

In 2017, David also filmed the feature LOST IN LONDON - Woody Harrelson’s directorial debut, which he also stars in with Owen Wilson and Willy Nelson, and which was the first film to ever be screened live. In 2016, David filmed roles in ITV’s FEARLESS,  Channel 4's THE WINDSORS and DAMNED, E4's AVATARDS and BBC1’s HOSPITAL PEOPLE, as well as the comedy pilot BACK with David Mitchell and Robert Webb. Other feature film credits include THE HUNTSMAN: WINTER’s WAR and THE INBETWEENERS.

After appearing in two-hander LELA AND CO. at the Royal Court Theatre, which was one of Lyn Gardener's top 10 theatre productions of 2015, he then went on to appear in PINE at the Hampstead in late 2015/early 2016.

He has also appeared in award-winning films and television shows including THE INBETWEENERS MOVIE, FRESH MEAT and WHITECHAPEL. He played the role of Mario in the feature film NOBLE, which was released in Ireland and the US last year.

David played the lead role of Mush in IdeasTap's play MUSH AND ME which had a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe and was followed up by a run at the Bush Theatre.

"And the delightfully naturalistic David Mumeni provides some of the best acting I’ve seen on the Fringe this year" ✭✭✭✭

The Telegraph 

"Mumeni's performance is outstanding, both in terms of his comic timing and in his versatility." ✭✭✭✭✭
