Boston Comedian Dave Rattigan's deadpan delivery and quick, dry wit has made him a favorite at clubs, corporate shows, colleges, theaters and fund-raising shows.
His CD, “Dave Rattigan: Thinks He’s Funny”, has received airplay on XM Satellite Radio and radio stations in the United States, Ireland and Australia. He has performed around the Northeast United States and in 2005 did a series of shows in Kilkenny, Ireland. He performs each year at the Boston Comedy Festival, as well as the top clubs in New England.
More important than his career: he and his wife have a beautiful and brilliant toddler (99% Dave's DNA). They don't sleep much.
He has played in front of crowds as large as 2,300, and runs a company that produces first-class comedy theater shows and fundraisers, called Scamps Comedy Productions. ??Rattigan has performed on shows with major national comedy and musical acts including Steven Wright, The Beach Boys, Bob Marley, Jeff Dunham, Nick DiPaolo, Adam Ferrara, Gary Gulman, Bill Burr and Jonathan Katz.
In addition to standup, he is a writer of both serious and comedic prose, and has been published in major newspapers and magazines. He is an adjunct faculty member at two North-of-Boston community colleges, teaching writing and public speaking. He also teaches standup comedy in the division of continuing education at the colleges, and several of his students have gone on to perform at top Boston comedy clubs.
