| DAVA KRAUSE
“I got my medical marijuana card for anxiety. All I had to do was put my mother on Speakerphone.“|
“I was in a sorority in college... Pi Alpha Bulimia.“|
|Comedy‘s rising funny lady Dava Krause has released her debut album, CHILD OF THE 80‘s on New Wave Dynamics. Downloadable now on iTunes, Amazon and other fine digital stores. The album is a mix of Krause‘s original songs and her live stand-up set. |
Krause‘s comedic tunes span from the title track, “Child of the 80‘s,“ a tribute to the decade of her youth, to her prideful “Tramp Stamp,“ describing the persecution of ladies such as herself who have tattoos on their lower backs. With her fresh vocal ability and acoustic guitar style, Krause incorporates odes to the notorious Bally‘s gym, her roommate‘s permanent-fixture-in-their-apartment boyfriend, farting in front of someone you love, and a melody of impressions of the female singers who inspired her.
In between the catchy comedic tunes, nothing is off limits as Krause offers her perspective on everything that has made her who she is today, including sororities, online dating, phone sex, marriage, germaphobia, oral sex, shaving, and her views on legalized marijuana.
Although she has a natural funny bone, Krause has been working hard at her comedy for several years. A regular on the Los Angeles comedy scene appearing at The Hollywood Improv, The Ice House and at The Laugh Factory on Tom Arnold‘s “Laughing with the Stars,“ Krause has also traveled all over the country performing in clubs, colleges and festivals. And, she is no stranger to improvisation and sketch comedy having studied at The Second City Conservatory and The Improv Olympic Training Center in downtown Chicago, while earning her B.S in Theatre at Northwestern University.
In 2009, Krause booked a recurring role on the award winning FOX television show, “HOUSE, M.D.“ and she was selected to be the first “Rising Star of Comedy“ by JLTV (Jewish Life TV), America‘s first nationally broadcast Jewish themed network available on DirecTV. Prior to this, Krause became the youngest comedian to have her jokes featured in Judy Brown‘s book, “She‘s So Funny,“ currently available in stores nationwide.
Krause wrote the theme song for the series, “Women‘s Work“ as well a dozen other original songs that can be heard on XM Satellite‘s Radio, and she is a national voice-over artist lending her voice to video games and radio & television commercials nationwide. Never content with waiting for opportunities, Krause created, wrote and starred in two original web series, “My Roommate‘s Boyfriend“ produced by Comedytime.tv, and “Inappropriate Fairy Tales“ which was featured in the ITV Fest 2009.
