Dave Dugan      

Award-Winning Voice Actor, Comedian & Humorist

The son of a custom builder, as a teenager, Dave’s first job assignments were shoveling pea gravel and laying sod. Dugan quickly discovered he was allergic to hard labor and immediately went on to ‘find something else.’

In addition to headlining at theaters and clubs around the country, Dave’s ability to adapt to each audience and customize content to best fit their industry has made him a highly sought after emcee and corporate comedian.

"Dugans Aren’t Losers" is the name of Dave Dugan’s latest comedy tour and forthcoming CD, both peppered with Dave’s dry, laidback everyman style that has led to several national television appearances including "The Arsenio Hall Show," HBO, COMEDY CENTRAL, FOX, A&E and VH-1.

Dugan’s unique humor and observations have also led to over 200 appearances on the nationally syndicated "Bob and Tom Show"… (where his portrayal of the mean-spirited, politically incorrect, adult bully Bart McCallister has become a fan favorite.)

An award-winning voice actor, you have likely heard Dave on national commercials such as Bacardi, Erie Insurance, Disney, Wells Fargo, AOL, Bass Pro, etc. In addition, he is heard weekly on "FOX Sports One" as a voice for NASCAR Racing promos and features, and as narrator on the NBC Sports series "Indy Car Chronicles." Beginning in August, Dave will narrate a new series called "America- the Beautiful" for the Travel Channel.


Speech Topics


A laugh-packed performance customized to best relate to your group or industry. Unique observations and tips on everything from beating the system in today’s economy to how to cope with travel frustrations to struggling with constantly changing technology ---all delivered in his Bob Newhart-like everyman style. Dave is often the victim of his own situations and messages are weaved in effectively and subtly in a non-preachy way that motivates everyone to see the humor in themselves. Sporting the deepest voice in comedy, Dave is often hired as both the entertainment and the emcee.


Being introduced as a so-called expert or a new hire in an upper management position with whacked out ideas or even portraying a desperate, pathetic competitor are just a few examples of Dave's successful approaches as an impostor. You help create the fake, yet believable bio and he’ll play the role. An inept brother-in-law to the CEO, a stuffy, full- of- himself consultant, anything goes when it comes to Dave’s portrayals. Due to detailed research, the audience is convinced of his credentials ( at least initially.) The fun is watching their reactions as they try to ‘figure this guy out.” As one client stated, "It was as if you were a co-worker here for 20 years...months later, you are still the talk around the company!"


Not usually a topic choice, but Dave’s unique handling of emcee duties makes it worth mentioning as one! With a trained and distinct voice, he weaves in humor seamlessly to make even the driest event memorable.
