Hey guys! First and foremost, thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedules to visit my website!
Well, after nine years of doing stand-up, I caught a huge break while performing in Las Vegas, and I am now appearing on the new reality show The Entertainer starring Wayne Newton!
Tune in Sunday nights at 10:00 p.m. on E! (see Schedule for additional show times) to see me compete against nine other hopefuls for a chance to win a million a dollar contract and the title of "The Entertainer."
Wish me luck and I'll see you in Vegas! Once again, thanks for the support!

The Boston Globe has described Dave Russo as "a talented comedian whose innovative material and energetic style made him the hit of the inaugural Boston Comedy Festival. After a week long series of competition, Dave Russo was the last contestant standing in a field that started with 75 comedians. Before a standing room only, Russo was named Boston's Best New Comedian." Michael Blowen, The Boston Globe.
Shortly after winning the Boston Comedy Festival, Russo was one out of five comics featured on UPN's 25th Anniversary Two Hour Comedy Special. Within his first 24 hours of moving to New York City, Dave was hand selected by Ray Romano's management team to perform on Robert Klein's New Joke City. Dave has also appeared on Comedy Centrals Laugh Riots, Comcast's Stand-up Spotlight & Nickelodeon.
Dave Russo has since become one of the country's most versatile and entertaining comics working today. Dave has performed at over 200 colleges and top venues around the Nation such as the Tropicana in Las Vegas. Dave has opened for many national acts such as The Bare Naked Ladies' 9/11 Benefit Concert, Hootie and The Blowfish, The Righteous Brothers, Joe Cocker and dozens of national comedy acts from Dave Chapelle and Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) to Lenny Clarke (It's All Relative) and Kevin Pollack, to name a few.
