Hire a Host

Dave Nelsen

Dave is a 15-year veteran performer and instructor with ComedySportz-Milwaukee, Dave Nelsen has entertained (and sometimes run crowd control for) a variety of audiences. From nurses to high schoolers, from pipefitters to engineers , from 4-year-olds to 84-year-olds, Dave has handled them all.

With a deep voice and bald noggin that can get any crowd's attention, Dave carries a strong yet disarming stage presence. He can be charming when he needs to be and sarcastic if the occasion calls for it. In his other life, Dave's a copyeditor, and his aptitude as a succinct wordsmith shows up often in his hosting style. Just look at the way he smoothly used the words "aptitude," "succinct" and "wordsmith" in that last sentence.

Above all, Dave believes a successful event is one that moves along swiftly and sends everyone away satisfied. As your host, he'll do whatever he can to make sure both of those happen.
