David Nguyen is a writer and comedian currently writing and comedianing in California's Bay Area. One half of The Colossal Show, San Jose's premier independent comedy showcase, David is a mainstay both in the local scene and comedy clubs across the state. David is a refreshingly positive voice in stand up - his act has a sharp edge but never draws blood. He's like a bag of jelly beans with the licorice and popcorn beans left in – overall, very sweet, but with just enough bitter notes to keep it interesting. Preferring a gentler approach to social commentary than the foot-stomping, chest-pounding norm, his criticism is always funny and usually constructive. And with an immediately likable demeanor and a deep bag of topics from which to draw material, it is easy to see why David is one of the most dynamic young comics working today. David was a finalist in the 2011 Rooster T Feathers New Talent and 2012 Battle of the Bay comedy competitions, and has worked with Carly Aquilino, Pete Davidson, Kevin Shea, Sheng Wang, Brandon T. Jackson, Phil Palisoul, Dat Phan, Marc Ryan, John Henton, John Heffron, and Robin Williams. He opened Anthony Jeselnik's 3rd Special: Thoughts & Prayers.
