A darkly-funny everyman whose shows are nonstop fun, Dave Waite has captured the hearts of comedy fans everywhere. Dave’s swagger, his honesty, and his endless supply of bizarre catchphrases have earned him a reputation as a comic’s comic with broad crossover appeal. There’s no such thing as a “typical Dave Waite show,” as his willingness to be in the moment takes his performances to places that some comedians wouldn’t dare visit. Dave’s recent CD “Kaboom!” was recorded at Skyline Comedy Café in Appleton, WI by Grammy-winning label Stand Up! Records. Tracks from “Kaboom!“ can be heard regularly on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio, as well as Pandora. Dave appeared as a guest on The Bob & Tom Show, one of the most popular morning shows in America, and performed on the fourth season of Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.” He currently lives in New York City but regularly tours comedy clubs and universities around the country.
Erik Dersch’s lifelong, and semi-pathologic need to be the center of attention led him into a dysfunctional relationship with stand-up comedy starting in 1999. Erik and Comedy have been on again/off again ever since, as he occasionally cheated on her with other interests like “employment” and a “steady paycheck.” Still, Erik has always come crawling back to comedy’s sweet bosom, letting her walk all over him, and alienating his friends as they make rendezvous at clubs all over the Midwest.
