David is a comedy writer and director from Toronto, Ontario. For over a decade he has delighted audiences with his peculiar humor and unique perspective on the world as a comedian and actor. He has performed regularly across North America, and has been “endorsed by” (read, they said I was funny on tape once) some of the brightest talents in comedy today, like Eugene Mirman and Reggie Watts. I’ve been mentioned obliquely by Vernon Chatman of PFFR, and my twitter has been blocked by Jerry Seinfeld.
His comedy writing has been featured in numerous magazines and periodicals, like McSweeney’s Quarterly and their Internet Tendency. His blog enjoys a large readership and has been featured in such trendsetting sites as Bored At Work.
He has been awarded a prestigious grant from the Canada Arts Council, and has won the $10,000 Robinhood Fund prize for his film “To Kill Stephen Spielberg”
In 2007 he created L’Brondelle’s Universe, a multimedia entertainment property consisting of a video pilot (2010) and a wiki (2008) dedicated to the world of knowledge explained in the show. He has worked in television for Much Music, IFC, Discovery Network, and YTV, and has contributed to the writing and production of an episode of Xavier Renegade Angel, by comedy enfants terribles PFFR, creators of Wonder Showzen. He wrote and acted in the Chart.TV/Aux TV web series Spookey Ruben’s Dizzy Playground, a music themed comedy series featuring famous musical acts, such as Feist, and Hole.
In Toronto, he performs regularly, and is a part of the Laugh Sabbath group, a Toronto-based group of associated comedians. He can be spied on YTV’s youth prank show “Extreme babysitting” as many weirdos freaking out young and vulnerable teens.
Also a musician, his band PDF Format perform regularly to great acclaim.
