Hi, it’s Dave A it is really hard to talk about anything with the sudden loss of Otto. Let me just say, he was one of the most original acts I have ever seen. And there never will be another like him.. He will be greatly missed.
Ok, guys forgive me for switching gears, but I have to thank you all . I never would have imagined the ROAD WORK special and COMEDY UNDERGROUND SERIES would ever get such a big response… Your tweets, and comments blew me and the other comics away… And I can not thank you enough. And to both the long time fans who have stuck with me for years and the new peeps who are just watching me now..I hope to see you all at a club down the road.
I just got permission from the network to post some links to a clip from the COMEDY UNDERGROUND SERIES
You see, I am not kidding when I say the network is serious when it comes to ANY AND ALL UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THE MATERIAL. They will be clamping down hardcore and I think it is a good idea. …Okay enough of me blathering on and on
Nice job fellas..xoxo
NOW BEFORE I GO…
Just another quick word about OPERATION PURPLE and the NATIONAL MILITARY FAMILY ASSOCIATION. It was great to see tweet after tweet with the #OPERATIONPURPLE hashtag. I knew you guys would help me support this great cause. And if you read my last post, I will be sending another check (UP TO 25K) by the end of the EIGHT WEEK RUN OF COMEDY UNDERGROUND.
Once again, I am NOT asking for any money. Just please be cool… Only download if you want to watch and enjoy the shows.Now, I only get a very small percentage of the money from this, but I am committed on trying to raise another (25K) for #OPERATIONPURPLE and N.M.F.
Ok… once again thanks for watching the shows!!
OTTO WE MISS YOU!!!!

MORE GOOD NEWS
Both shows will be available for download almost immediately after they air tonight!!!
NOW JUST A FEW WORDS ON DOWNLOADS
Some of you already know about the charity stuff so forgive me but just to bring everyone up to speed.
I have taken $25K out of the big chunk of the coin the network gave me to make the hour special ROAD WORK and the new series COMEDY UNDERGROUND and donated it to a good cause.
OPERATION PURPLE is a summer camp for the children of veterans deployed overseas. It’s just one of the great programs run by the NATIONAL MILITARY FAMILY ASSOCIATION. Now, $25K is a lot of cash, but not enough and here is how you can help…
I am going to make another donation depending on the number of downloads, but any unauthorized use of the material in any shape or form is going to get in the way of how much I can send… So, let’s not pirate the shows!! Or misuse the material!! This is the best way to help me raise more cash for the troops and their families.
We can do this…GO USA!!!!!
Thanks guys, see you down the road.
Hi, it is Dave A again, I told you guys that I would post some new promo clips ASAP, so here are some good ones the network sent over…

THE NEXT PROMO CLIP is for the series, Comedy Underground
Before you hit play I have to warn you…The following promo clip contains some nudity..….. Jeff Ross without a shirt…Take a look if you dare!!!
Okay, before I go… Thanks again for all the great feed back on my donation to OPERATION PURPLE and the National Military Family Association it’s always an honor to give back to those who have given so much.
I will be back again toward the end of the week to talk more about the airing the series Road Work and about downloads for both shows…
I appreciate you all…
Hi everybody, after another sad weekend of posting tribute pixs. It is time for some good stuff.
The special, Road Work, and the comedy series, Comedy Underground, air Saturday April 12 at 11:59pm — and the network peeps are asking me to “talk it up” with you guys… Well as you know, I really am not a big self-promoting type of dude… But, here is something I am excited about…
I had the pleasure to do a benefit last week for OPERATION PURPLE.
It was a good show but the turn out was kinda low… Well, in honor of the troops and their families, I’m taking some of the coin I got for making the special and donating 25k that’s (25,000) bucks to OPERATION PURPLE .. Below is more info on the charity, check it out and let’s send these kids to camp!!!
What is Operation Purple?
Operation Purple camps offer a free week of summer fun for military kids with parents who have been, are currently, or will be deployed. The goal of the Operation Purple camp program is to give military children tools to help deal with the stresses that result from a parent’s deployment, through a memorable camp experience in a “purple” environment. Operation Purple camps are open to military children of all ranks and Services: active and reserve components—and give priority to children whose parents are in a deployment phase.
How is Operation Purple camp different from other military kids’ programs?
Operation Purple camps are the only camps that provide a residential camp experience to military kids in a purple environment. In addition to providing the camp experience they also teach kids coping techniques and provide them with tools to manage their stress, the week-long summer camps offer a wide variety of fun and interaction with other military kids.
The National Military Family Association is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization (EIN/tax ID number: 52-0899384).
- Meets all 20 of the Better Business Bureau’s standards for Charity Accountability
- Holds an “A” rating from CharityWatch
- Earned 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator ten straight years
I will be posting more clips as soon as I get them from the network, so stay tuned and keep checking the site.
Till then have a great night
Hi, Everybody its me, Dave A… It has been way too long since I have written anything on this site. But I have been trying to keep track of all the cool posts and messages you guys have been sending my way. A lot of you have asked me to mix up the posting of my “tribute” pixs to the fallen with some fun stuff. And to this I totally agree.
Well, Spring is here!! And its time to put the brakes on the sad train for some Good news. April is STAND UP MONTH on COMEDY CENTRAL and my new special made the cut. YES!!! April 12th, at 12 midnite EST. my new hour special “ROAD WORK” will make its network premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL….
For those of you who have been coming to my live shows over the years, I think you will dig the fact that the special is done entirely in comedy clubs all over the country. I took some of the best and worst moments from five live shows in five towns to make the delicious mess that is ROAD WORK. This special is very low budget, low brow and sometimes out of focus; But the crowds were great and there are plenty of jokes on important stuff…like porn.
Check out this clip from the Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis
Whats up with the announcer guy??? Is this comedy or NASCAR? Either way, I think you get the idea……check it out April 12th, 12 midnite. EST
