Mini Bio (1)

David grew up in Montreal and moved to Los Angeles immediately after completing his BFA in Musical Theater from Emerson College in Boston. It didn't take long for one time head of Warner Brothers Television (now head of CBS), Leslie Moonvees, to recognize Lipper's ability for comedy. Lipper was quickly given the starring role in the Kaufman/Bright/Crane pilot, Reality Check, playing opposite a young Tiffany Thiessen, Giovani Ribisi, and 2 time Oscar winner, Hillary Swank. The other pilot Kaufman/Bright /Crane made that year was the mega hit Friends. When Reality Check didn't go, Moonvees put Lipper on the Warner Brothers hit show, Full House, where he played D.J.'s boyfriend, Viper, for that final season. Lipper also got to showcase his musical theater roots, by playing in the show's band, with John Stamos, and even playing live his own original music on the show. Eager to go against type and show his range, Lipper soon after played the rapist Jace in the hit NBC movie, She Fought Alone. Lipper has bounced around between playing hero and villain in both comedy and drama ever since. This year is no exception, where Lipper both reprized his role as Viper on the new Fuller House, and played the Nazi, Kurt, in the acclaimed Exodus To Shanghai. Fans will have to watch the new show, Frequency, to see where Lipper lands in his key recurring role on this new Warner Brothers/CW show.

Personal Quotes (1)

[on co-starring with Ami Dolenz in ABC Afterschool Specials: Boys Will Be Boys (1994)] My whole idea was to present the sort of brother most teenage girls would proudly claim as their own. When the real Steve Cooper dropped by and thanked me for portraying him, I knew I'd gotten it right.
