You have never seen anything like ODDVILLE!
Think Blue Man Group meets The Forty-Year-Old Virgin and you’d be close. But not close enough. Hysterically indescribable, ODDVILLE is a unique piece of brilliant modern theater jammed with ingenious props, amplified physical comedy, complex multi-media imagery and a cool nostalgic score. It’s a love story with limited words but plenty of heart that connects your imagination to your funny bone with fits of laughter.
As the curtain rises on ODDVILLE our lonely hero, Lonely 1, is caught between existing onstage or inside a giant video screen. With one foot rooted in reality and the other in an alternate digital universe he battles the oddest of obstacles on his quest for true love. Can he find happiness in a cardboard box? Can the audience help him find his underwear? Will an evil cat sell him a new pair of hands? Why does his true love have a flat screen for a head? How many lemons will fit in his pants? And why can he
kiss but not talk?
A love story wrapped in clever wit and irresistible charm, ODDVILLE is an unforgettable evening of modern theater that will leave you laughing, thinking and wondering, “How on earth did he pull that off?” Audiences agree, ODDVILLE is truly a comedy that has no borders. Even those too cool for theater find ODDVILLE cool enough, indeed.
DAVE SHIRLEY - (Writer, performer)
Dave is a comedian who doesn’t tell jokes. He does a whole lot more. He began as a teenager busking in the streets eating fire, regurgitating burnt razor blades and blowing smoke into square shaped bubbles. As long as it was peculiar and entertaining, like picking politician’s pockets or levitating dead puppets, he did it.
To hone his unique humor, he gravitated towards improvisational and sketch comedy by creating The Rattlebrain Theater Company in Denver, Colorado. As artistic director and head writer he produced years of critically acclaimed and widely popular music and comedy revues.
After being discovered by AMERICA’S GOT TALENT, his most memorable bits have now been seen and applauded by millions. As a finalist he proved that comedy can go far beyond standing on a stage with a microphone. It can be captured by your eyes, processed through your id and injected straight into your funny bone.

He belongs to a unique breed of humorists, bringing to mind the best of Lily Tomlin and Mark Twain, creating characters that boggle our minds with biting wit and rapid-fire satire while simultaneously crafting a simple story that binds us all together.
His ability to combine the raucous laughter of stand-up comedy with the startling thrill of live theater continues to fill seats everywhere; as nothing like this can be seen on TV.
