American actor, winner of three Emmys and six American Comedy Awards for his role as Niles Crane, Frasier's elite, effete brother on the hit sitcom.

David is the youngest of four kids born to an insurance company owner. As a kid, he wrote dramatic skits for himself and his friends to act out. At Yale, he planned to become a concert pianist but realizing that it was not for him, shifted to English and theater majors. He worked at Bloomingdale's in New York before reaching a Broadway debut. His first file role was in "Bright Lights, Big City," 1988.

David raises funds and awareness for Alzheimer's disease, having seen it devastate his grandfather and father.
