Comedy Cavern : David Nihill
David 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, and the Huffington Post among others. A festival favourite, David's videos have also gone viral many times over with over 200 million views and a social following of over one million people. Originally from Dublin, David 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. His comedy has been described as high brow, thought provoking hilarity. You'll be the best judge of that!
