Dave is a throwback to another era of comedy. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears. Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City's Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today. He's appeared on Comedy Central's "Live At Gotham" and was a finalist on season 8 of "Last Comic Standing”.
