The high-energy, take-no-prisoners, comedy of ALEX PAVONE is not to be missed.

Born and raised in Woodbridge, Ontario, Pavone has been making crowds laugh since 2007. He has performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival and has toured at clubs and colleges all over North America. “Alex Pavone is a young, cocky stand-up in his mid-20s who’s been doing comedy for about five years. Last year, I saw him perform several times in short sets where his impressive, manic delivery burned up the Yuk Yuk’s stage. Often he was so high-strung, he walked out into the crowd – on people’s tables, no less – and continued his act. Guy’s got balls.” (Full Story) – Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine

Additionally, Dave’s mostly imaginary Norwegian Black Metal Band Witch Taint is currently bringing its own disturbing brand of comedy and music to audiences all over the world after having existed merely as an absurb email chain for over a decade. They’ve also sold a lot of T-shirts. Dave has made out with a lot of chicks, is sweet at guitar, and smells really great. You can ask anyone.
