Dave Dugan Speaker Biography


Seen on HBO, COMEDY CENTRAL, FOX and a Regular on the nationally-syndicated BOB AND TOM SHOW (with over 250 appearances). Recently released, Dave Dugan's new comedy special " HUMAN CANNONBALL " is now featured on Dry Bar Comedy---the very popular comedy streaming site for CLEAN comedians!

"Clean humor with imaginative angles. A very engaging comedian who is also extremely quick on his feet!" The Los Angeles Times

Jim and Martha Dugan’s boy- Dave- was born to be a comedian. A one-of-a-kind delivery accompanied by impeccable timing and imaginative comedy angles has led DAVE DUGAN down the path to NATIONAL TV APPEARANCES and to RAVE REVIEWS from corporate event planners.

“Dave made me look good” is a common testimonial heard from planners who have trusted this highly-sought after comedian to engage their audiences, “and he is so easy to work with!”

And TV appearances that go beyond multiple appearances on Comedy Central and HBO? 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.

It’s the same natural style that led him to comedy in the first place. Although to hear Dave tell it, he had nowhere else to turn. “Born into a family of home builders, I quickly found that being handy is not necessarily hereditary.” One summer he worked on construction jobs for his Dad and quickly found he was allergic to ….hard labor. “In some ways, I think I entered the world of comedy by default.”

One more fun fact, In May, Dave set a WORLD RECORD for number of laps driven around a roundabout (1001 laps and 4 hours and 28 minutes beating the record formerly held by an Aussie )...the quest helped raise thousands for cancer programs and services. At their annual fundraiser, the charitable organization presented Dave with an award to acknowledge his world record for charity. Dugan claims, ‘‘it is the only award I have ever won, unless you count Honorable Mention for my 5th Grade science fair project----The Digestive System.”

Laughing Your Way Through Life 

A laugh-packed performance customized to best relate to your group or industry. Unique observations and tips on everything from beating the system in today’s economy to how to cope with travel frustrations to struggling with constantly changing technology ---all  delivered in his Bob Newhart-like everyman style. Dave is often the victim of his own situations and messages are weaved in effectively and subtly in a non-preachy way that motivates everyone to see the humor in themselves. Sporting the deepest voice in comedy, Dave is often hired as both the entertainment and the emcee. 

The Imposter 

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. An inept brother-in-law to the CEO, a stuffy, full- of- himself consultant, anything goes when it comes to Dave’s portrayals. Due to detailed research, the audience is convinced of his credentials ( at least initially.) The fun is watching their 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!"

The Master of Ceremonies

Not usually a topic choice, but Dave’s unique handling of emcee duties makes it worth mentioning as one! With a trained and distinct voice, he weaves in humor seamlessly to make even the driest event memorable.
