Dave Levinsohn’s on-the-spot skills often make it look like he’s making it up as he goes… that’s because he is!

This popular and original comedian has been honing his skills as the host at the Coffee Lounge comedy club since 1997, and is a regular face at the Vodacom International festival and the Smirnoff comedy festival.

Television viewers are familiar with Dave’s quirky, irrepressible humour from his ‘Big Black Box’ ads, or possibly as the zany co-presenter in the first series of the SABC 3 TV shows ‘Going Nowhere Slowly’, as well as a character (and writer) in the “Tonight with Trevor Noah Show”, (MNet).

On the comedy stage, his material darts into more lateral territory… With his “slightly-weird-guy-next-door” approach to every subject under the sun, Dave is odd, without being offensive. His anarchic re-examination of everyday topics has won him fans at every appearance, as does his ability to improvise when interacting with the crowd.

This versatile comic, who has known his true vocation since his schooldays in Springs, offers off-beat fun for anyone in the mood for a left-field comedy experience. You will most certainly want to see Dave again and again, mostly to explain his jokes or to return some of the stuff he’s stolen.
