Dave Burkey has been a stand up comedian since childhood when he realized kids punch the funny guy way less often. Using a sometimes absurd form of story-telling, Dave has been avoiding getting punched in clubs and bars across the Midwest since 2013.
He is a multi-time finalist in the Columbus Funnybone's "Funniest Person in Columbus" contest, a regular contributor to Whiskey Bear Comedy's character roast shows as well as the in-house comic for The Not So Late Show at the Shadowbox Backstage Bistro.
Price Range: Inexpensive
Gig Length: 10 - 40 minutes
Dave has been telling jokes to crowds since the first grade when he realized making people laugh made them stop beating you up at recess. He has a sometimes dark, sometimes absurd story driven style of joke telling that lets the audience connect to just why he is so damn weird.
Dave is a three time finalist in the Funniest Person in Columbus contest at the Funny Bone comedy club, runs a popular monthly showcase "An Evening W/ The Burkeys" at Kafe Kerouac, is a regular contributor to Whiskey Bear Comedy's 'Pop Culture Mixtape' and character roasts. Dave is the in-house comic for 'The Not So Late Show with Johnny DiLoretto' which can be seen monthly at the Shadowbox Backstage Bistro in Columbus. He has also performed in multiple festivals around the state of Ohio.
