ComedianDave 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 |
