WE HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD !
David Bell - also known as the Plague Doctor - is not a trained medic; nor is he an historian or a qualified lecturer. However he does spin a terrific yarn.
He is your ideal speaker for any occasion. David's engaging story will not only surprise you and make you think; but will also make you laugh out loud and feel so much better about yourself and the world you now live in.
For a fascinating hour you will be seduced in a uniquely amusing fashion back to a time when both medical diagnosis and treatment were equally outrageous
A world you would want to avoid . . . . like the plague !
Despite being clouded by the passage of time the Eyam plague story remains an enduring episode from our history. And 354 years on this small village in the beautiful Peak District, where Geordie exile David now lives, continues to make the most of its tragic past.
Any account of a community attempting to prevent the spread of a killer disease is hardly going to be light entertainment. However David 'breaks the mould' with his clever, affable, tongue-in-cheek style resonating seamlessly with his audience.
So before you separate fact from fiction in the Plague Doctor's light hearted take on life; just remember that laughter really is the best medicine. Laugh out loud as David confronts a party of eager German tourists on his doorstep; wince as he extracts a bladder stone and demonstrates other outrageous early treatments. But whisper it again, the plague's about !
The Plague Doctor's mantra is simple
If the audience are laughing they are not only listening . . . . they are also feeling good.
It's a fact that a hearty laugh relieves tension in your body for up to 45 minutes afterwards.
Laughter improves your immune system; it increases your resistance to bacteria & viruses
and it also helps your blood flow far better; protecting you against cardiovascular problems.
“I am having such a fantastic time.” said David. "I never imagined in my wildest dreams
that at this stage of my life I would be demonstrating haemorrhoid relief with leeches and
buttock clenching tobacco smoke enemas." . . . .“Laughter certainly is the best medicine,"
commented Janet Stain of the Crosspool Ladies Group in Sheffield.“The Plague Doctor
came to entertain our members recently and immediately won us over with his hilarious
anecdotes and original storyline. David had us all in fits of giggles from beginning to end.
Just go and see him for yourself. He spins a fabulous tale & you’ll feel all the better for it!”
It was lovely to see our member's happy faces as they left the hall.
Great night. Still laughing.

"Today we held the 491st meeting of the Scarsdale Probus Club. I have not of course attended
them all, nevertheless many of us have been to more than we care to admit to ! The consensus
of our members here today is that Mr David Bell should be awarded the weighty accolade of
being the most entertaining & captivating guest speaker we can remember for a very long time.
Praise indeed. Well deserved congratulations"
