Dave Dugan

Watch The Video

An award-winning writer, Dave Dugan takes the time to customize humor for each performance to best fit each audience, group, or corporation, sometimes kicking off the performance as AN IMPOSTOR. Being introduced as a so-called expert or a new hire in an upper management position with whacked-out ideas or even portraying a desperate, pathetic competitor are just a few examples of Dave's successful approaches as an impostor. You help create the fake, yet believable bio and he'll play the role. The fun is watching the audience's reactions as they try to 'figure this guy out." As one client stated, "It was as if you were a co-worker here for 20 years...months later, you are still the talk around the company!"

And about those TV appearances? Back when he shaved every two weeks whether he needed it or not, a young Dave headed to Los Angeles from Indiana and within a few months got his first break from the legendary DICK CLARK. Clark included the new Californian on one of his many nighttime music-driven shows on ABC. That led to multiple appearances on the then ratings-leading ARSENIO HALL SHOW and Dave instantly became a favorite at the World Famous COMEDY STORE IN HOLLYWOOD, a regular writer and contributor on the most popular morning radio show in the country (BOB AND TOM) and can be heard regularly on SIRIUS RADIO. Headlining at theaters and clubs all over the country, Dugan has made a lasting impression with his one-of-a-kind dry, everyman style.

His playful style makes his interaction with the crowd hilariously funny—and it's done in a refreshingly positive way that brings people together. Quite often, he gets the best compliment of all. They book him again!
