Dave continues to enjoy sold out performances of his stand up, and performs at many colleges, corporate events, casinos, nightclubs and theaters across the country.
Dave especially loves playing to college audiences, saying: “I love performing at colleges and universities. Students grew up watching Full House, and I’m the ‘funny guy’ from their TV generation.” “It’s all clean comedy…even your grandparents can laugh at my shows”.
