Dave Foley at UP Comedy Club
Dave Foley was born and raised in Toronto where he attended alternative high schools. At a young age, he began writing stand-up comedy for creative writing projects. His interest in improv led him to comedy workshops, where he met and teamed with Kevin McDonald. They became “The Kids in the Hall” one year later and the rest is history!
After the successful run of Kids in the Hall, Dave signed onto the long running NBC series, Newsradio. In between seasons, he forged a feature film career that is still very active today. In addition to his comedic work, Foley has also been seen in HBO’s critically-acclaimed mini-series, From the Earth to the Moon. He also wrote and starred in the film The Wrong Guy which was released in Canada. In addition, he also directed the Kids in The Hall documentary, Same Guys New Dresses, based on one of the group’s recent tours.
Some of the many films Foley has starred in include Sky High, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, A Blast From the Past, South Park: Bigger and Longer, Cars, and Postal (now in post-production). Dave has been equally active on the television side and has appeared on Will & Grace, Las Vegas, Joey, Lovespring International, Scrubs, Brothers & Sisters and he has also hosted multiple runs of Bravo’s Celebrity Poker Showdown.
