David was born and 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.
