Dave Levinsohn


Dave Levinsohn’s comedy style has been described as ‘off the wall’ and off the cuff, having started as the host at the Coffee Lounge Comedy club in ‘97, he’s become one of SA’s most bankable comedy acts. The ex-Art Director made a wise move following his passion. He loves making people laugh. He has known his true vocation since his schooldays in Springs, where he spent ten years as class clown. This versatile comic offers off-beat fun for anyone in the mood for a left-field comedy experience. 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; he’s 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. As an MC at an event he strikes the perfect balance in corporate environment. He’s currently working on saving the planet with Bono.
