Dave DuganAward-winning comedian and author of "LAUGHING YOUR WAY THROUGH LIFE"

Seen on HBO, COMEDY CENTRAL, FOX and a Regular on the nationally-syndicated BOB AND TOM SHOW (with over 250 appearances) Jim and Martha Dugan’s boy was born to be a comedian. A one-of-a-kind delivery accompanied by impeccable timing and imaginative comedy angles has led DAVE DUGAN down the path to NATIONAL TV APPEARANCES and to RAVE REVIEWS.

“Clean humor with imaginative angles. A very engaging comedian who is also extremely quick on his feet!” The Los Angeles Times

Dave customizes each performance to best fit each audience —AND has entertained thousands with his angles on health, technology hassles, exercise (where you don’t get hurt!) as well as popular references to the good old days of TV and music.

The award-winning writer and comedian has shared his special brand of humor with numerous senior communities, town halls and health and wellness events all over the country—creating a wonderful escape for all those in attendance.

” Dave Dugan’s clean humor and uncanny ability to take our human nature and put it in such a way that each of us was able to laugh at ourselves led to nothing but positive responses! ‘Laughing Your Way Through Life’ was a perfect choice for our group!” 

Becky H.  Oakland Town Hall

“Dave kept our audience entertained by combining our jargon with localized humor during our wellness initiative– “Laugh off the Stress and Wellness Fair” day. The perfect start for our event—I would highly recommend Dave for any type of corporate event.”  

Steve L. –DFAS

TV appearances beyond numerous Comedy Central specials?  Back when he shaved every two weeks whether he needed to or not, a young Dave headed to Los Angeles from Indiana and within a few months got his first break from the legendary DICK CLARK. Clark included the new Californian on one of his many nighttime music-driven shows on ABC. That led to multiple appearances on the then ratings-leading ARSENIO HALL SHOW and Dave instantly became a favorite at the World Famous COMEDY STORE IN HOLLYWOOD, a regular writer and contributor on the most popular morning radio show in the country (BOB AND TOM) and can be heard regularly on SIRIUS RADIO.

Dave is extremely easy to work with and more than happy to help promote the event with media interviews. And, being a budget-conscious type himself, he does not ask for any travel expenses.

Headlining at events all over the country, Dugan has made a lasting impression with his one-of-a-kind dry, everyman style.

It’s the same natural style that led him to comedy in the first place. Although to hear Dave tell it, he had nowhere else to turn. “Born into a family of homebuilders, I quickly found that being handy is not necessarily hereditary.”  One summer he worked on construction jobs for his Dad and quickly found he was allergic to …. hard labor. “In some ways, I think I entered the world of comedy by default.”



A very original and laugh-packed performance topic customized to best relate to your group or company. Sometimes the topic title is tailored to best connect to the event.  At a wellness event, “Laughing the Stress Off,” at a health fair, “Laughing for the Health of it” and so forth. Unique observations and tips delivered in his Bob Newhart-like everyman style; Dave is often the victim of his own situations.



Instead of introducing Dave as a comedian–consider bringing him on stage under the guise of an impostor: An expert in the field, a consultant, a new hire that just happens to be related to the CEO, ETC…

Then watch your fellow employees’ reactions.  Dave will arm himself with the right amount of research to be believable but will present outlandish ideas and left-of-center concepts to make the audience wonder “What’s up?”

Dave has utilized this path to kick off an event on many occasions before launching into his comedy performance (once he confesses who he really is) …always with unpredictable and great results!
