Dave Burleigh is about to “Make America's Political Comedy Great Again!” For years Dave Burleigh has been entertaining audiences around the globe with his unique blend of comedy. His universal appeal and talent have landed him on various TV shows, premiere cruise lines, the biggest casinos in Las Vegas and in the boardroom of Fortune 500 companies. Dave has honed his skills as a master impressionist and possesses an arsenal of spot-on celebrity impersonations. His ability to incorporate this lost art form into his act guarantees the audience will be left wanting more.
Always looking for the next super star voice to add to his arsenal, in early 2017, Burleigh embraced his latest challenge … to develop the most popular President Donald J. Trump character portrayal in the world. Burleigh and a group of industry professionals have teamed up to create an “above the belt,” hilarious, one man show – all about “The Donald.” Featuring full prosthetic makeup designed by Academy Award winning makeup artist - Kevin Haney (Driving Miss Daisy) and a human hair wig designed by renowned Hollywood wigmaker - Victoria Wood, every appearance is amazingly accurate. But perhaps most important, Burleigh and his talented writers have found a clever way not to step on any toes - on either side of the political aisle. The material is not only fresh and smart, but respectful of the Office of the 45th President of the United States.
Burleigh has performed on stage with some of comedy's biggest stars. In 2005, as a two-time finalist in the San Francisco Comedy Competition, Burleigh shared first runner up honors with past legends like Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, Marc Maron, Dane Cook and Kevin Pollak.
2012, his multiple characters, voices and impressions were again showcased on Season 7 of America's Got Talent where he became a fast favorite of both judges and fans alike. Judge Howard Stern said, "You have an excellent command of the stage.” Fellow comedian Howie Mandel (also a judge) added, "Your impressions were spot on.”
In 2013, Burleigh’s uncanny ability to impersonate just about anyone even landed him a starring role as Charlie Sheen in the film - "Not Another Celebrity Movie.” Also, with numerous television, podcast and radio appearances, the international press has weighed in. "Burleigh has the trappings of a soon to be comedy star" – reports Rolling Stone magazine.
Dave offers an unforgettable evening of hilarious comedy and amazingly accurate impressions in his one-of-kind show. Prepare yourself for a ride as he reinterprets life experiences through his personal comedic point of view.
"We recently saw Dave Burleigh open for Olivia Newton John at The Mountain Winery and knew we had found our comedian for our upcoming Holiday Party – What an amazing talent."
"Dave did a great job on Friday night. Throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday, several of our people told me how much they enjoyed his material and personality. My responsibilities get so intense that it's difficult to relax at times, he fixed that for 30 minutes ... and subsequent moments throughout the last few days as I found myself laughing. He was so accommodating to our schedule and kept the material relevant and appropriate."
"Dave is a very talented comedian who seamlessly mixes clever and innovative comedy into his very original act. His celebrity impressions were dead on. I was glad that we went and would definitely recommend fitting him into your schedule if the opportunity presents itself to see him. What a great show!!"
