David Huntsberger is a stand-up comedian who hosted Syfy’s late night comedy clip show REACTOR, and whose voice you might recognize from the Professor Blastoff podcast with Tig Notaro and Kyle Dunnigan, which premiered at #1 on iTunes and was named to Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” at #2. David is a regular on the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and has also been a guest on Marc Maron’s WTF, Sklarbro Country, The Dork Forest, Fitzdog Radio, and numerous other podcasts. He has released three CDs, with the two most recent through Stand-Up Records. Humanitis, released in 2011, was named #1 on the Serious Comedy Site’s year-end list, as was his most recent CD, Explosion Land, which debuted in the top 15 of the iTunes comedy charts. In describing the album, which deals largely with human evolution, technology, and beliefs, Daniel Berkowitz of The Spit Take said: “Huntsberger rarely talks about himself, but he makes up for that lack of intimacy by not merely addressing topics ostensibly foreign to comedy fans, but by doing so in an intelligent, fluid and slightly absurdist way.” David has made appearances on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend as well as NBC’s Last Comic Standing and has written for The Benson Interruption on Comedy Central. He has been invited to the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival in D.C., the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, The Comedy and Burrito Festival in San Francisco, CA and the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX. In his free time, he enjoys drawing comics and animation—which can be seen on his website www.davidhuntsberger.com. David also hosts the monthly Los Angeles–based comedy/variety show The Junk Show. Most recently, he art directed an hour-long standup special ONE-HEADED BEAST in Austin, TX which incorporated the work of over twenty artists and animators from around the world. As well as writing and performing all of the stand-up, David also contributed animation and storyboards. His latest project is a new podcast called Space Cave that consists of David sitting down with scientists and academics, having some beers, and talking about life, the universe, and everything. The A.V. Club said of the Space Cave, “Huntsberger’s thirst for trivia to concoct this promising new venture makes it well worth getting into the cave on the ground floor.
