About Dave

Dave R

The Man, the Myth, the Legend...

This guy is one of the busiest comics in Boston. He's headlined some of the best clubs and theaters in New England, opened for The Beach Boys and Nick DiPaolo, and created the themed standup comedy show How Men Think (Or Do They?). He's appeared in regional television commercials for I-Party and Olympia Sports. He's written funny columns for the Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor and others. His CD has been played on XM-Sirius, Slacker Radio.com, Matty's Comedy 1200, and AOLRadio.com. His video clips have run on Nickmom.com. He's a regular at the Boston Comedy Festival and this year appeared at the Hampton Beach Comedy Festival and the Women in Comedy Festival.

And if that is not enough he has a young daughter at home that is making him question his title of "Boss Man". Ah, Daddies and their little girls...
