Dave Bloustien – Complete History of Western Philosophy
2009 Moosehead Award Recipient (for The Social Contract)
2009 joint AWGIE award winner, comedy writing (for Channel 10’s Good News Week)
Last year DAVE BLOUSTIEN proved he was funny in a court of law, grew a toddler from scratch and turned older than Jesus (34).
This year, he’s scaling the ivory tower to butcher history’s brightest brains, from Ancient Greeks to postmodern freaks and everything in between.
This is Dave’s 4th solo stand-up comedy show for the Sydney Comedy Festival. It’s an idiot’s guide to genius, as told by an over-educated moron.
“Non-stop laughs … Bloustien was laid back, engaging and intelligently perceptive, peppering his routine with a genuine charm that made the hour fly”
— The Advertiser
“A prolific gagster, using jokes where others would use a full stop … let it be said in print: Dave Bloustien is funny”
— The Age

Dave Jory became a cult favourite on Triple J with a fake celebrity gossip segment (2006-2007) and then the brilliant segment called ‘I Love This Crowd’, where he performed listener’s jokes in a stand up club and played the recordings on-air.
In 2007, Dave was a finalist in Rove Live’s ‘Golden Nut Competition’, as well as being chosen as an Australian finalist for the popular NBC America program, ‘Last Comic Standing’. He has since appeared on television shows such as ‘The NRL Footy Show’, ‘Stand Up Australia’, ‘Joker Poker’, ‘Last Comic Standing’ and ‘The Mansion’ amongst others.
Dave is the author of the book, ‘I Know Everything’, which Hustler Magazine described as, ‘has the edge over Woody Allen’. He has also been a contributing writer for various magazines and TV shows, such as ‘The Glasshouse’ and ‘Stand Up Australia’.
Dave has worked with lots of great comics over the years, including being the opening act for Weird Al Yankovic, Arj Barker and Paulie Shore for their respective shows at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney.
He was voted one of Zoo Magazine’s ’10 Funniest Australian Comedians’, and is also an accomplished actor and writer. Dave’s stand-up act is relatable, light on profanity, and most of all, hilarious!
