Special Event: David Nihill

Join comedian Dave Nihill for a night of real Irish comedy. Accent included.

Dave left Dublin, Ireland, where he was born and raised, at 22, and got drunk on travel, never quite getting sober from it. He has lived and worked in twelve countries and visited over seventy. His shows draw on his wide travels, cultural observations, attempts at language study, (occasional) international drinking session(s), and being a mildly confused immigrant in the US.

Dave is the winner of the prestigious annual "San Francisco Comedy Competition," (previous finalists include Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres and Dana Carvey) and runner up in the "Moth’s Largest US Grandslam Storytelling Competition." He recorded his debut special for Dry Bar Comedy in 2019 and has been featured on TED.com, Amazon Prime Video, The Irish Independent, Inc, Sirius XM, NPR, Ireland AM, Pat Kenny, and the Huffington Post among others. Dave is a festival favorite and his videos have also gone viral many times over with over 100 million views and a social following of over 700,000 people.
