Dave Merheje

Dave Merheje is considered to be one of the most original stand-up acts on the comedy scene today. His multiple award-winning act has gained a loyal following across in North America with his “no fear” approach on stage and a comedy style best described as aggressive in-your-face funny. Dave had his first comedy special air in Australia on ABC2, and has made appearances on Comedy Network’s Match Game, was a regular contributor on MTV Live, recurred on CBC’s Mr. D, and he co-stars in the comedy series Ramy on Hulu. As a stand-up, Dave won the Just For Laugh's 2011 Homegrown Comic Competition and NOW Magazine's 2011 Best of Toronto Award for Best Male Stand-up. In 2012 he was a part of the NBC Standup for Diversity tour, and a Canadian Comedy Award-nominee for Best Stand-up. In 2013 he was nominated for another Canadian Comedy Award, this time for best taped live performance, and was a finalist at the Seattle Comedy Competition. Dave has made multiple appearances at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, JFL42 in Toronto, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia, and tours clubs and theatres regularly. In 2018 Dave released his comedy special “Good Friend Bad Grammar” which is available on iTunes and Amazon Prime, and won the 2019 Juno Award for Comedy Album of the year. His most recent comedy special, Beautifully Manic, can be seen on Netflix as part of Comedians of the World, right now.
