Posted by Amie / October 6, 2011

dave merheje one man showCall & Response is a series of Q&As with bands, artists and random people we dig that live in Montreal, visit here, or have some dubious connection to the city.

He's usually got a whole lot more to say on stage, but here Montreal's own winner of the 2011 Homegrown Comic Competition for Best Canadian Comic at this year's Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Dave Merheje, answers Midnight Poutine's questions succinctly about his upcoming live advice column/one-man comedy show, (((Dear Dave)))). The show is happening at the Theatre Ste. Catherine on Friday, October 7th. He's been on MTV Canada, MuchMusic, CBC, and XM Radio, and recently sold some rights to ABC2 (Australia, no the US) so they'll be listening to his improvisational comedy stylings down under soon enough. He's performed with or near Russell Peters, Sarah Silverman, Chris Hardwick, Gregg Proops, Maz Jobrani, Hannibal Buress, and other comedy bigwigs and up-and-comers.

Where was your first live comedy show? Was it everything you had ever imagined?

At a club in my hometown. It was fast and I bombed, but I loved it

If your comedy was a famous historical figure, who would it be and why?
Martin Luther king. He was powerful and smart

What do you love most about Montreal?
The girls, I would have to say, and boustan

What do you love most about Poutine?

What it does to my stomach

What's the best way to spend a million dollars in 10 minutes?

Slurpee machine in my mansion , rice pudding everywhere , and should multiple rap videos

Who is your favorite Canadian Artist?
k os. Every album he does I can listen to all the songs

What's the best place you've ever been to?
Calgary I had too much fun.

What's the worst place you've ever been to?


How did you spend your 16th birthday?

Can't remember, probably playing road hockey and crying into my rollerblades

At the upcoming show on Oct. 7th, Dave plans to integrate video and live performance with pre-recorded segments of Montreal personalities like Amy Luft (CTV), Ram Krishnan (The Unsettlers) and Gillian Sze (Writer) to find revelatory answers to frivolous questions. Know when you're in class and the teacher says, "There are no stupid questions"? Yeah, the teacher was wrong. Fortunately, it means more hilarity for you tomorrow night. Dave promises to answer those frivolous questions live with "his brand of dizzying, spirited rants and an unparalleled capacity to squeeze any subject dry".

And if you love the show (or get there super late) there's an after-party hosted by Percy Sledgehammmer & friends with promised cheap drinks and a dance party. Comedy, a dance party, and booze.

"...wheat with feathers..."He had the same effect on me. When I was twelve, one of the cable channels we got ran a pile of Woody Allen movies over and over again for a month. The effect was devastating.It also taught me to keep a sock filled with horse manure on hand when going out in public, because there are a great many people who need to be hit with one.Watching the last movies before the Soon-Yi affair became public That was...yeah.

Neon-coloured umbrellas also make a terrific selection, but make sure they are not too flashy for
different peoples' eyes.
