Dave Maher

Dave Maher has appeared on “This American Life” and in the pages of the Chicago Reader and Chicago Tribune. His one-man show, Dave Maher Coma Show, has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe. He teaches storytelling and creative process classes at the Annoyance.
Gapers Block called Dave a “smartly unhinged, wildly funny comedian,” and the Chicago Reader wrote, “I’d watch Maher do just about anything.” He tours Dave Maher Coma Show around the U.S. and internationally. Dave also performs standup and produces experimental comedy shows such as “Listen & Ask Questions: A Protest Show” (an improvised conversation with the audience), “Bracketology: The Tournament of Everything” (an argument-based game show), and the original musical What’s a Hamilton?: “Hamilton” Recreated By People Who’ve Never Seen Nor Heard “Hamilton.”

Dave works as a voiceover and on-camera actor, and he appeared on Chicago Med in the role of a homeless, uninsured alcoholic known as “Barry’s Gurney Guy.”
