Dave’s unique perspective and sarcasm gives us a hilarious hour of stand-up comedy that won’t soon be forgotten. He finds the humor wherever common sense is in jeopardy, such as the prescription drug industry, his struggle to have an open mind and his girlfriend’s incomprehensible view of the world.
Dave is originally from Ithaca, New York but currently resides in Los Angeles California. The son of a history professor and artist mother, he has been struggling to understand the world around him for most of his life. His father passed away when he was only 13, leaving him to experience his teenage years with an all female family, a Mother, two sisters, and the family cat.
Dave graduated from High School as valedictorian! Of course, this sounds much more impressive than it really is. You see, he attended “The Alternative Community School” and never actually received any letter grades, so he was only the valedictorian because he gave the graduation speech. A fine speech it was! He went on to study at the State University of New York, Brockport, but found that something else was calling to him. After a few years he got the travel bug and off he went, not on a cruise or vacation, but on a road trip. He bought a 1973-dodge motor home, and began to travel across the country. The next 4 years were filled with restaurant jobs, from Cape Cod to Venice Beach. The extended trip soon came to a sudden end when the engine in the motor home blew up. Dave settled in Los Angeles and became an executive recruiter and more importantly a stand up comedian. He found that stand-up comedy was a great way to tell share his view of life and the world we live in.
Dave has been performing as a professional Stand up Comedian for over 10 years. He has worked as an MC, feature and Headline for Clubs, Corporate Events and Colleges all over the country. He is also the Co-Executive Producer of H2F Comedy Productions Inc, a Comedy Management and Development Company, that produce such shows as “Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Contest, and “Survival of the Funniest.” He was the Assistant Publisher and Comedy Editor of Laugh-Line Magazine (1999-2002).
Since the events of 911, Dave’s comedic voice has taken on a political twist. He lists George Carlin, Bill Maher and Chris Rock as sources of inspiration. He recently tied for 1st Place in the San Jose Improv Battle of the Bay comedy contest, has been heard on “This American Life” and KPFA Radio and seen on the discovery network, and continues to perform at Clubs and College across the country. Also you may recognize him as “The Jet Blue Guy” who filmed a farewell message to his girlfriend inside the cabin of the recent flight 292 that had an emergency landing at LAX. Spend an hour with Dave and find out what’s really going on in the world!
