I was wondering what special stuff I could write about for Halloween when I got this email from David Acer. No more wondering! We have comedy magicians on the menu!
NIGHT OF THE LIVING STANDUPS
David “Axe-Wielding” Acer headlines halloween weekend at THE COMEDY NEST with special guests Mike “Barely Undead” Paterson and DeAnne “Your Brain Looks Delicious” Smith.
David Acer is an award-winning writer and comedian who has done crazy things on television shows around the world, like protesting outside a train station dressed as a giant penny while inviting people to lie down on the tracks to “see how it feels.” And limping to the couch for a talkshow interview with a Denver Boot on his leg because he had “a few unpaid j-walking tickets.” He has appeared on a multitude of international specials and a plethora of Canadian comedy classics, not to mention live at The Riviera in Las Vegas, The Magic Castle in Hollywood, and 10 times at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal. But younger viewers (and insomniacs) are more likely to recognize him as “Doubting Dave” from the syndicated series, Mystery Hunters, which garnered him two Gemini nominations (the Canadian equivalent of the Emmys) for Best Writing in a Children’s Non-Fiction Series, and the publication of his spin-off book, GOTCHA!, now a Canadian bestseller.
