Profile:
Dave Levinsohn’s comedy style has been described as ‘off the wall’ and off the cuff, having started as the host at the Coffee Lounge Comedy club in ‘97, he’s become one of SA’s most bankable comedy acts. The ex-Art Director made a wise move following his passion. He loves making people laugh. He owns and runs Comedia.co.za which is a comedy booking and gig info website. He has made his improvised comedy skill something to experience for comedy punters in South Africa.
 
He performed at the Vodacom International Comedy festival, The Cape Town International and the Smirnoff Comedy Festivals. One of the first SA Stand ups to be invited to perform at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2012 with Loyiso Gola. He was also a writer and performer on the Award Wining Tonight with Trevor Noah. He’s graced the small screen in many commercials that have gone on to win awards, and have become viral successes. He co-presented the first series of SABC 3’s ‘Going Nowhere Slowly’.
 
On the comedy stage, his material darts into more lateral territory, with his “slightly-weird-guy-next-door” approach to every subject under the sun; he’s odd, without being offensive. his anarchic re-examination of everyday topics has won him fans at every appearance, as does his ability to improvise when interacting with the crowd. His on-the-spot skills often make it look as if he’s making it up as he goes… that’s because he is! He is a regular host at Parker’s comedy club At Montecasino and has a comedy night he produces called ‘Gangsta’ comedy in Bedfordview.
 
He has known his true vocation since his schooldays in Springs, where he spent ten years as class clown.
 
This versatile comic offers off-beat fun for anyone in the mood for a left-field comedy experience. As an MC at an event he strikes the perfect balance in corporate environment. You will most certainly want to see Dave again and again, mostly to explain some of his jokes or to return some of the stuff he’s stolen.
