I have been on stage in front of an audience in one way or another for just over 26 years. Started off by trying out for a children's musical theatre company when I was 13 (mainly because I wanted to get into the pants of the girl who told me I had a nice voice and should try out). That led to many underwhelming roles in high school drama and then NOTHING for about 6 years.

Then, as luck would have it, I was driving around looking for my next ho-hum job when I heard an advertisement on the radio for an improv comedy show, ComedySportz. I took a friend of mine for her birthday, volunteered for one of the games and got a few laughs; more importantly, a resurgence for that heroine-like need of strangers being impacted by something I did on stage. I auditioned the following day and was invited to join the very next week...and I have not looked back.

Nowadays I pay the bills as a technical writer for a local startup software company and perform / write comedy whenever I get a chance. If I have one professional goal it is to invent a new font called "Sarcastica". I can be seen at ComedySportz, occasionally performing at The Hideout Theatre and various other improv venues as well as on-mic and behind the scenes with Master Pancake Theater.

My wife and I have been married since 1999. I met her while karaoke DJ'ing at the Common Interest. She was the manager so I married her for job security. We have two amazing sons who are catching on to my antics WAYYY too soon.

My life can be hectic at times but I wouldn't change a thing!

"Hey Dav, we want you to host a quiz show that is cleverly written, hilarious at times, encouraged by booze, and puts you on a microphone. What do ya say?"

Shit yeah!

Let it never be said that a geek’s heart is a lonely one. I was knocked out to see so many people show up for our quiz. Typically speaking, Valentine’s Day is pretty slow for bars (restaurants make out like bandits though). Granted, our quiz numbers dipped a little. We had 17 teams instead of the 21+ we have been drawing lately. No worries. I hope the absent teams were getting laid or at least getting a discount!

I have been battling this weird head/chest cold/allergy/plague thing that has had most of Austin at its mercy for the better part of two weeks. I have been on a steady regiment of NyQuil, Benadryl, and ibuprofen just to get through the days. Am I going to let that keep me from delivering the quiz goodies? Hell no! Despite sounding like Optimus Prime choking on a dick, I was there doling out the charm, candy, and love in my playfully disdainful way that you have all come to expect.

We had a couple of birthdays in the house! Ryan, who sat in the back porch area, and another lady to whom the inside patrons (led by me) performed the barnyard animal version of Happy Birthday to You. The birthday girl picked her top four farm animals and we sang to her in four-part bestial harmony. She resisted at first but eventually gave in to the lunacy! It was – memorable.

As luck would have it, the night ended in a tie for 2nd place. We launched immediately into a game of Category Die where yours truly committed an audience-perceived blunder. One of our categories was Muppets. I added the challenge of non-Sesame Street Muppets and the game commenced. When a player yelled out “Kermit” I called them out only to receive an instant barrage of angry and disapproving voices. I know that Kermit is the leader of The Muppets but rather than break the flow of the game with a lesson on Muppet chronology, I recanted my call and the play continued. Now, here is some history for you doubting little quizzlings. Sesame Street first aired in 1969 with Kermit as one of the original cast. It was not until 1975 that The Muppet Show launched. So, with my non-Sesame Street character level of complication, I was indeed correct in my call and the rest of you can bite by hairy ass! Don’t FUCK with the Quizmaster!

Here is a recap of the quiz:

Round 1 just happened. Round 2 changed all of us and Round 3 took us to a higher plain. Round 4 left you with that “not so fresh” feeling and Round 5 was inquisitive. Round 6 scared the love out of you, Round 7 was cinema at its sappiest and Round 8 was random.

Taking 2nd place after scoring quite well and conquering Category Die was Q Oscar Pistorius, who shot your girlfriend? A: Dunno I'm stumped! Nothing like a tasteless riddle for a team name! Our champs from last night held fast to the top spot as long as it took and prevailed! Congratulations, Papal Abdication Sounds Like a Sex Crime!

Thank you one and all again for sharing the most contrived of holidays with your pals at Nomad and Geeks Who Drink. James and I will be back next week ready to deliver the quiz you need so stop tapping that vein, come back next week, and bring a friend!

Until then…
