In Partnership with Comedy Dynamics. Dave Helem is a stand-up comedian, writer, and performer from Chicago, Illinois. He has appeared in multiple episodes of Laff Tracks for truTV and is currently on the writing staff of Raven's Home for the Disney Channel. Previously, Dave wrote for Hood Adjacent on Comedy Central and the series REL for Fox.
Returning to Chicago after graduating from Morehouse College, David started his career teaching high school and quickly learned that was not his calling. Deciding to give comedy a try, David quickly ascended the comedy ladder and found himself opening for Tracy Morgan and Doug Stanhope, then later going on tour to numerous cities with Hannibal Buress and Tony Rock.
Soon after, Dave joined The Second City and co-created two record breaking shows for the historic theatre. Afro-futurism broke records for a local show and their follow-up Black Side of the Moon at The Woolly Mammoth Theatre became the highest grossing tour show in the history of The Second City.
Dave is based in Los Angeles.
