Dave Hill
Dave Hill
Who is Dave Hill? It's a question I ask myself often, which is strange considering the kind of access I have. This much I can tell you though- I am the new Hollywood "It" girl, the next Leo, America's fresh-faced boy next door, and your new best friend all rolled into one. I am a poet, a dancer, and- perhaps most of all- a thief. Soon I am to steal your heart.

More to the point however, I am a writer, performer, musician, actor, comedy-type person, artist, and thinking man originally from Cleveland, Ohio but now living in the Big City, New York to be exact.

On the show business front, you might recognize me as a frequent on-air correspondent on the popular premium cable television channels HBO and Cinemax. Or maybe you saw me on Fuse TV's "Hoppus on Music," a show I am totally on all the time. I also recently starred in wildly popular "King of Miami" program on the MOJO network (a futuristic high-definition television channel that was recently destroyed in a horrible explosion) which is now airing in the United Kingdom on the futuristic Film24 channel. Or perhaps you've seen me on Court TV's comedy news show "Smoking Gun TV," which was canceled. I've also shown up on the popular MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Adult Swim, Sundance Channel, TLC, Current TV, and Spike TV networks a few times. Deal with it. Sometimes I miss being able to walk into the free clinic and stuff without being harassed by people who watch TV really late at night, but for the most part I gotta say this "fame thing" suits me well. Really, really well.

On the writing front, I have written for the New York Times, Salon, HBO, Blender, the Huffington Post, FHM UK, the New York Daily News, XXL, Guitar World, Guitar Player, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, VH1, Spike TV, The Learning Channel, Court TV, and a bunch of other people too. I also wrote "The Black Metal Dialogues", which is pretty much the biggest thing to happen to the Internet since that one picture of the guy with puke coming out of his nose. Additionally, I am a contributor to the popular public radio program "This American Life". And my first book, Tasteful Nudes will be published by St. Martin's Press May 22, 2012 and I'm not even kidding, so please buy a lot of copies. It is the greatest book of all-time.

When I'm not busy being on TV all the time, I perform in New York City clubs. I get up on stage and talk about stuff, read something I wrote, dance around a little bit, show a short film I made, or just sort of touch hearts in general. I am also the host of a live chat/variety/donkey show called the Dave Hill Explosion, which is pretty much #1 in its time slot as far as I'm concerned. And one time, during a routine flight layover at the Newark airport, I staged an impromptu one-man interpretation of the award-winning musical Cats entirely within the confines of my trousers. As long as we're on the topic, I should probably also mention that I have appeared at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and was named by Variety Magazine as one of their "10 Comics to Watch" in 2007. I'm not messing around with this sh*t.
