Dave Waite’s oddball stories and rants have made him a favorite at clubs around the Midwest. A square peg who found happiness when he stopped trying to fit in, Dave’s hilarious tales of personal failure have won the love of audiences young and old alike.

Although Dave is known for his constant grin, the first few years his post-college life didn’t give him much to smile about. After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in the lucrative field of geography, Dave drifted through a series of jobs ranging from call center representative to substitute teacher, experiences that later became a part of his act.

On his days as a substitute teacher, Dave says, “My kids would come up to me and say, ‘Mr. Waite, you’re going to die from smoking!’ I was like, ‘No, Timmy, more like drinking!’”

After being fired from nearly every job and having zero luck at finding love, Dave’s self-esteem hit rock bottom in early 2004. His salvation came in the form of a newspaper ad for a stand-up comedy class at the Funny Bone in Newport, KY. Dave took the class and fell in love with stand-up, quickly gaining a reputation amongst both comedians and audiences as one of the Midwest’s wittiest and most unpredictable young comics.

Robert Hawkins

You know, an enormous number of comics—including the vast majority of those who pass through the friendly little place we like to call Cap City—maintain career objectives that include aspirations toward acting in a sitcom, or writing for one. But, hell, Robert Hawkins has already done both—in the same series, no less: the late, lamented “Titus.”

Indeed, he was hired as a story editor, which means he wrote a script or two per season, and contributed mightily to the scripts written by his colleagues, adding jokes, improving dialogue, etc. Before long, his work in the writers room so impressed the Fox show’s producers—who also knew of his acting aspirations and abilities (a few years prior, he had landed a development deal with Fox)—that they cast him in a recurring guest role as Titus’ brother-in-law, Michael.

So when it comes to working in network television, while we wouldn’t exactly say “been there, done that”—we’re guessing that under the right circumstances, he might be persuaded to return to such work—he has logged that experience, and his passion for stand-up has never wavered.

Not coincidentally, perhaps, he’s always had a tremendous flair and a considerable gift for it. One measure of this would be his results over the years in comedy competitions, or similar enterprises.

In 2001, he was voted one of the 25 top comics in the country in a poll of comedy club owners nominating candidates for the American Comedy Awards. And, perhaps needless to say (given all these victories, achievements and accolades), he’s starred in his own Comedy Central half-hour special, appeared on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” and a slew of other TV shows.

Still, when all is said and done about his work—cable TV, network TV, writing, acting, etc.—Robert Hawkins’ first love is performing comedy in a club in front of a live audience, and obviously he’s pretty damn good at it. Do you want to miss that? Didn’t think so.
