I'm Dave Levinsohn I've been a professional comedian for more than 20 years. I'm well known for my off-the-cuff, razor-sharp insights on every subject under the sun. As an MC at conferences and awards ceremonies I bring a professional freshness and energy to the table, with many of my clients choosing to use me frequently for their functions.
Regular host and headliner at Parker’s comedy club and The Cape Town Comedy club. Producer and writer for many comedy events through my company Comedia. I also brew my own brand of beer called: Davebrew. I love golf days.
Comedia is a company that has it's roots firmly in comedy media and information regarding South African and overseas comedy news.
This popular rock festival used to showcase some of South Arica's best comedians, and Dave Levinsohn spoke to some of them.
This is a clip of what I do. Some TV commercials from 20 years ago, a golf day, some comedy clips and a conference or two. Enjoy.
In South Africa no electricity for a few hours a day is normal, but what do other countries think of our power supply?

I've had funny bones my entire life. I love this job and I'd do it for free. But I prefer to invoice, as things didn't work out too well when I was doing it for free. You get the idea. Book me for comedy set or as an MC.
Funny is funny, but if you need to label things? I love irreverent, smart and off the cuff stuff. 'It's the way you tell 'em'. People have said they tried to do my jokes at work the next day and they weren't the same.
Every office has a space where people gather to let off some steam. Contact me if you’d like to have comedians entertain your over-worked office dwellers. We’ll even throw in a keg of crafted Davebrew.
Conferences, campaigns, road shows, launches, golf days, comedy festivals. Started at The Armchair Theater in '98, as an act called: Agony Barman Dave. Did some TV ads and now here we are.
As a graphic designer I have some clients that need some marketing done. I offer my services for social media design, posters, web things and any printing needs. Take a look at some of my stuff.
Fridays at 9am on Cliffcentral, myself, Eric Jansen and Ryan Holliday used to get stuck in a studio for an hour with guests. It's mostly comedy industry news, tips for comics and audiences.

Dave was exactly what we needed for the day - He understood the type of guest we were having and adapted accordingly. His humble approach to the tasks, being fully involved and always thinking about the lighter side of things made him indispensible. Nissan Management got on famously with him - his “theatrical” element added the perfect pitch to the day. Thanks very much. - Addictive events

I remember listening to comedians on vinyl with my headphones at my uncle's house when I was 9. I could sometimers complete the punchlines and always felt at ease making people laugh.
Pronounced Open Mike. The concept originated in Vaudeville when the stage and microphones were left 'on' or open and people were encouraged to get up on stage and do whatever they liked.
In Roman times when the Emperor was speaking, the opposing Senate paid people in the crowd to shout support or abuse at the speaker. So to be fair the first pro speakers where the hecklers.
Having a comedian as your MC is a good idea. Provided they are briefed correctly and have great time keeping. There is nothing worse than an awards evening that seems like it will never end.
I mail news and gig info from time to time. I promise no spam or Crypto invites. Cool?
