Dave Williamson comes from a family of automobile dealers. In order to get noticed in this loud family living in fast-paced Miami, Dave relied on humor as he recited his favorite commercials and SNL skits as a kid. Shortly after graduating from Auburn University, Dave’s affinity for characters and experience in freelance journalism led him to performing sketch comedy. Craving as much stage as possible, he soon branched out into Stand Up, and fell in love with it. His humor centralizes mostly around the hijinx of his childhood, his colorful college experience and his continuing journey into young adulthood as a husband and a father. Earning college degrees in Business and Creative Writing was an unknowing glimpse into the future of how he’d balance working for his family’s business while nurturing his passion for comedy. Luckily, comedy found a way and Dave has begun carving out a promising comedy career.
Drawing from these experiences allowed him to quickly excel in many showcases such as ones for The Lucky 21 Las Vegas Comedy Festival, the Carnival Cruise Line Challenge, and the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in the 105.9 “Paul and Young Ron” So You Think You’re Funny Comedy Contest and performed in the 2008 & 2010 South Beach Comedy Festival. This year he will be performing in the 2010 Laugh Detroit Comedy Fest and has been invited to callbacks in New York for the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. He has opened for such comedians as Jimmy Fallon, Gilbert Gottfried, Richard Lewis, Dom Irrera, Christopher Titus, Joel McHale, and Bill Bellamy. He has performed at The Laugh Factory, Comedy Store, several of the IMPROV Comedy Clubs, as well as theatres and college campuses around the nation. The past few years he has developed a very energetic and self-deprecating style of presenting his view of the world which connects with both younger hip and older nostalgic audiences. His topics are often edgy, but in good taste. Dave proudly offers up jokes with rust-proofing and 0% financing. Floor mats not included.
