He has performed around the world and at the Edinburgh, Melbourne, Singapore, and Cape Town comedy festivals. He has also toured the UK twice to sell out audiences and rave reviews. He has over 300 million views of his stand up online and is also the writer, creator, and host of his Rose d’Or nominated BBC Radio 4 show Citizen of Nowhere that has aired for two series.

First landing on TV screens in New Zealand’s original stand-up series ‘Pulp Comedy’, globe trotting Kiwi Comedian Sully O’Sullivan’s been declared a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, won the International Improvaganza Tournament in Canada, featured on Australian TV’s ‘The Comedy Channel’ and in 2021 sold out every single night of his 22 date Edinburgh Fringe run. Renowned as an act capable of performing in any room and to any audience, Sully has also built up a reputation as one of the most reliable and quick witted comperes on the circuit. Sully offers a crucial mix of cynicism, intelligence and menace with some killer punchlines thrown in!
Dave has been a full-time comedian since 1998, and while he hasn’t become famous, nor has he starved to death, so he must be OK at this.

Fans of comedy history will also recall the name of Jongleurs, for whom Dave regularly worked in the good old days.

He has also performed in Cyprus for soldiers returning from Afghanistan.
