He started doing standup in Los Angeles in 2009 and quickly established himself as a staple of the LA comedy scene. He created the live comedy institution HOLY F*CK that became a compilation album known to comedy fans everywhere in 2012. Around the same time, his sketch group WOMEN reached acclaim making sketches for IFC and Comedy Central, and by 2013 he was touring the country, doing festivals like SXSW, Fest, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival and Warped Tour. In 2016 he was a New Face at Just For Laughs in Montreal, and in 2019 he did standup on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Drunk History, Corporate, This is Not Happening, The Moth, Risk! and WTF with Marc Maron have all featured him over the years.
But Dave might most be known as a podcaster. His shows Terrified (Nerdist), Good Heroin (Starburns Audio) and Suicide Buddies (Starburns Audio) all garnered hefty cult followings, and he was also co-host of Nerdist's Sex Nerd Sandra podcast for a time.
At the current moment, Dave lives in beautiful Glendale, California with his very old cat. His first album The Only Man Who Has Ever Had Sex is out now on Aspecialthing Records and Little Dipper.
