Taped in a drive-in set-up during the pandemic at the historic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, the special is an hour-long roller coaster of things that have made Dave Helem, the comedian and former math teacher, who he is.
From his glory days in the classroom, to how protesting doesn’t look the same for everyone, and why he won’t go back to Canada, his debut is not to be missed.
Dave Helem is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actor from Chicago. Returning home after graduating from Morehouse College, Dave started his career teaching high school on Chicago’s South Side and quickly learned that was not his calling.
