Customized comedy with original angles, Dave Dugan keeps the audience engaged and laughing from the moment he hits the stage. The son of a custom builder, as a teenager, his first job assignments were shoveling pea gravel and laying sod. Dave quickly discovered he “must be allergic to hard labor.” Fortunately his sense of humor led him down a different path. He humbly admits, “I fell into comedy as a default. I had nowhere else to turn.”
Dave’s dry, laidback everyman style has led to several national television appearances including HBO, COMEDY CENTRAL, THE CBS MORNING SHOW, THE ARSENIO HALL SHOW, A&E’S “Evening at the Improv” and many more. He is not only a comedian respected by his peers, but also a comedy writer who has been asked to put his humorous skills to work for several other comedians--as well as for the nationally-syndicated BOB AND TOM morning radio show ( where he has also appeared as a guest comic over 200 times!)
In addition to being a corporate comedian in demand, Dave is a standout emcee with a very distinct voice and a unique talent to weave that awards banquet or other event together with just the right amount of humor! An award-winning voice actor, you have likely heard him on national commercials such as Bacardi, Erie Insurance and Suzuki (to name a few), as narrator for CBS’s “ Courage on Sports” and on FOX SPORTS ONE as a voice for NASCAR RACING and for this season’s NBA Legacy Campaign.

"Dave was not only entertaining, but also customized his performance for our group. With a crowd including diverse backgrounds, it can be difficult to find a comedian that is funny and still appropriate for all. Dave was able to do this, while still finding ways to bring in the business commonalities that had brought people to our convention. Dave Dugan's mid-day performance was very well received." -ICPA & IRMCA
