In a comedy landscape dominated by misogyny, homophobia and dick jokes, award-winning TV comedy writer Dave Bloustien (Good News Week, Back Seat Drivers) is a little bit different.

He’s a comedian who asks the big questions: do skeptics really exist? Is it ‘Plato’ or ‘Plahtahto'? And who would win in a fight at a lingerie party between an elderly philosopher from Oxford and Mike Tyson?

In the 'Complete History of Western Philosophy', Dave trawls through over 2500 years of Western thought (with a little bit of Eastern thought, too) from Ancient Greeks to postmodern freaks and everything in between.

Dave has written jokes for top-rating TV comedy shows, performed for thousands of people at a time (often without a script), and produced and hosted sell-out live comedy events. As part of the writing team on The Glass House and Good News Week, he won five AWGIE awards for writing comedy and light entertainment. Dave has also told jokes on The Comedy Channel, performed regularly at Paul Provenza’s improvised stand-up show Set List all over Australia, won the Theatresports Grand Final in Sydney, was nominated for 2011 Time Out Sydney Comedian of the Year and popped up on The Chaser’s Media Circus.

Dave is the creator, co-founder and original host of Wit Large. This is his first visit to Fringe World.
