COMEDI NERD Episode #01 with comedian Dave Merheje

In this first episode of COMEDI NERD I talk to Juno award-winning comedian Dave Merheje.
Dave talks very candidly about a variety of subjects including taxing moments in the industry, preparation for his Netflix special and Juno award-winning CD, the beginning his career and how he ended up doing comedy, keeping it at a 100, Strip clubs, breakthroughs, childhood dreams, Juno Awards, anger and frustration as fuel, the cast of RAMY, mental health and therapy to name a few.

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.
