becoming one of Australia's most in demand comedians.

He is a regularly performs at festivals around Australia such as 'The Cracker Comedy Festival' and 'The Melbourne International Comedy Festival'. Dave can also be seen headlining at comedy clubs all over Australia.

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', which was broadcast to a large audience worldwide.

Dave has appeared on television shows such as ‘The NRL Footy Show’, 'Stand Up Australia', 'Joker Poker', ‘Last Comic Standing’ and ‘The Mansion’.

Jory became a cult favourite on Triple J with a fake celebrity gossip segment (2006-2007) and the very popular drive-time segment 'I Love This Crowd' where he performed listener's jokes in a stand up club, then played the recordings on-air for discussion. He is now presenting his latest segment 'Good Will Hunting', where he purchases used underwear from Good Will stores and mails them to listeners.

Dave is 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 supported international comedians, Weird Al Yankovic and Arj Barker at the 1800 seat Enmore Theatre in Sydney, as well as been the featured comedian aboard the P&O Cruise ship, 'The Pacific Sun'.

As a side project, Jory also performs as part of ‘Man Choir’ a choir composed of various journalists and comedians. Thus far the group has played the 2008 ‘Big Day Out’ as well as sold-out Enmore Theatre for the Theatre Sports Charity Night (also 2008).

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!
