About the Event


Comedy wunderkind David Rose is a jerk in progress. Armed with a law degree and a philosophy degree, he’s hellbent on becoming a better man, (though he worries that hell is where he’s bent on going.) With over a decade of comedy under his belt, David has appeared on BBC Radio 4, ABC Radio National, The Debrief with Dave O'Neil, Breakfast with Sammy J and Tonightly (ABC). With over 10 million views on Instagram, YouTube and TikTok, he’s gone viral on every corner of the internet, from fans of Ben Shapiro to Bluey. David is also the great-grandson of the iconic Jewish-American comedian Julian Rose, better known by his stage name, Levinsky. It’s no wonder he’s funny - it’s written into his DNA. He’s got comedy in his chromosomes. Don’t miss this scion of the new generation of comedy! Combining a potent mix of storytelling, smut, and a dash of politics, David sold out 10 shows at the 2024 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, with belly laughs delivered to over 500 audience members. His new show provides a ‘peek behind the curtain’, with tales of life on the road as a comedian, wooing his American girlfriend, and going through antidepressant withdrawal courtesy of Jetstar. He's nasty, he’s nice. He’s a jerk in progress.
