Dave is a foxy artist who has a unique ability to envision the kind of impact a particular punch line will have on the audience. He would take a slow start, rapidly increasing the volume and the frequency of the laughs that he produces. Before you know it, you’ll be caught up in back-to-back spells of eye-watering laughter, begging for mercy. He is an observational humorist quite unlike many others, thanks to his powerful scripts. You’ll keep laughing at his jokes for a long time even after the show is over.
Although he’s non-offensive and never insults his audience, his use of expletives and frequent references to sexual acts and taboos make him suitable for a 16+ audience. Dating, aging and creepy kids are some of his favorite topics. His extraordinary intelligence and incisive wit help him venture into topics as sensitive as racism and deliver belly-aching, yet heartwarming laughs. You can expect him to cover uncharted territory that few other comics have explored. The one thing he doesn’t know at all is how not to be funny.
Dave Bloustien is the five times recipient of the Australian Writers Guild awards (AWGIES) for the scripts that he wrote for Channel 10’s Good News Week. While it’s a big achievement for a writer who started as an intern on ABC’s The Glass House just a few years ago, Dave has also proved his prowess on stage by delivering sidesplitting standup live shows at the Adelaide Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Cracker Comedy Festival, and New Zealand Comedy Festival. The high point in his standup career came when he was awarded the coveted Moosehead Award for his performance in The Social Contract in 2009.
Bloustien has lately moved to Sydney where he has founded a comedy production company Wit Large, for which he is also the co-producer. So, he’s the comic you want to consult if you want a hilarious comedy event put together.
