Comedian Dave Reinitz THIS AMERICAN LIFE, BBC, TRAVEL CHANNEL, KPFK,
Dave´s unique perspective and sarcasm gives us a hilarious hour of stand-up comedy that won´t soon be forgotten. Taking nothing for granted Dave challenges "normal" beliefs and expectations. He finds humor wherever common sense is in jeopardy, such as the prescription drug industry, in ordering a simple cup of coffee and genetically engineered food "of course the bugs won´t eat it , it taste like crap". Like a modern day minimalist Robin Hood, Dave steels small things from big companies, not just to get even but to feel even. Well-traveled and semi educated, Dave appeals to the smart and silly sides of the audience. Raised by 1960s radicals in upstate New York, Dave lists George Carlin, Bill Maher, and John Stewart as artistic influences. MYSPACE |
Seth Clark started college to become a minister and found that most religion was more laughable than believable. He was born in the Carolinas but moved to SoCal to pursue graduate school. His combined experiences of fundamentalist Christianity, American Buddhism, and the general mayhem of life have produced an individual that is a full time scholar, comedian, and craft beer aficionado. When´s he not busy studying ancient texts, telling jokes, or delivering lectures, one can find him at local breweries. Seth´s love of the stage comes from the charisma he was exposed to in the church and the theatrical training that he received in high school and college. In college, he majored in Religious Studies and continues this work in History of Religions at a graduate level here in Claremont. He believes that life is more credulous than credible and there lays the humor seen in everyday life. WEBSITE | | BOOK
