About Dave Nystrom

Dave Nystrom was born in the same small Canadian town as Paul Shaffer. One went on to become a flamboyantly dressed performer with questionable sexuality, the other got a job on Letterman. Leaving his hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario in the fall of 1994, Dave moved to Vancouver to attend the Vancouver Film School's Acting for film and Television program.

As one of his lifelong goals of becoming a working stand up comedian began to come to fruition, Dave graduated from acting school. Not long after graduating, he got himself an agent and soon was off auditioning, landing a role on his very first audition for Showtime's Beggar's and Choosers.

Not long after graduating, he got himself an agent and soon was off auditioning, landing a role on his very first audition for Showtime's Beggar's and Choosers.

Shortly afterwards, Dave then began touring extensively to develop as a stand up. But when he did return to acting, the second role he landed was the lead in a movie of the week called Bratty Babies opposite Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna. Most recently Dave has been brought on as a writer for the top rated news parody show, CBC's This Hour has 22 Minutes.

Dave has toured extensively across Canada and last year had a successful trip to England, where he performed in a number of different clubs to appreciative audiences. This year Dave performed at HBO's prestigious US Comedy & Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado, where he garnered Industry praise. This fall Comedy Central will fly Dave to New York to perform on its stand-up showcase program Premium Blend. For now Dave looks ahead, as he continues to do what he loves: performing.
