Some Q&A's

There's something about Dave!

Billy Connolly

I heard Dave before I ever saw him, he spoke to me with my own voice and it was terrifying! He's a genuinely funny guy with the evil ability to mimic me and sound funnier!!! I then saw Dave in 'When Harvey Met Bob' playing 'me' - only this time, he looked like me too! Restraining order anybody?

Jonathan Ross

Crazy, crazy, czazy... I never know what he's going to do at any one time! Unpredictable, incredibly funny and above all, totally natural!

The Miriam Show (RTE)

There is no one funnier that Dave Young! He's been both a guest and performer on my show and both myself and the audience have enjoyed his infectious humour many, many times.


The man is crazy, his unique rendition of 'Mandy' is a show stopper, so funny - we had smiles on our faces for the night and well into the next day, the man's a genius!

Pat Kenny (NEWSTALK & UTV)

Dave is a tour de force of Comedy, don't for a minute think I'm in control during an interview! I'm generally the one not able to speak for all the laughter... Do yourself, your spouse to-be and your families a service and book this man, he will make your day!

Wedding By Franc (RTE)

I've been to many weddings where they have had wedding comedians and the majority of them just die on the stage and there is nothing worse! So, there is only one guy I know that's able to deliver time and time again... that's Dave Young - The Wedding Comedian!

Michael Buble

Not only can this man turn any room of people into a wobbling mess of laughter but he can also carry a tune nicely, almost too nicely... should i be worried?

The Saturday Night Show (RTE)

Dave has been part of The Saturday Night Show since it's launch in 2010. He has entertained the studio audience and guested on the show many times over the years and we look forward to many more years with him here, at RTE.

It's all about the...


F is for Family


U is for Unbelivable


N is for Naughty

Rudyard Kipling famously said 'Never the twain shall meet' - now, I'm sure he was talking about the bringing together of two families for a wedding!

We all know that each family is out to celebrate their respective relatives wedding day BUT they are also about to be forced together with half a room of virtual strangers with fears of 'nearly knows', 'oh what his name?' and 'hello there... (who's that?) type panic and fuss.

We'll, you can relax as Dave Young will bring his patented 'UN Peace Tactics'style of family integration to the show - Within an hour you'll all be laughing together as one and ready for the embarrassment of the dance floor!

So, it would appear that Mr. Kipling is totally wrong but that's ok because he still makes exceedingly good cakes!

Everyone has a little story to tell about a loved one, a little tale of embarrassment, the first kiss, a fashion statement that made little sense at the time but still haunts them, a nice big hole that they dug for themselves or a lovely place in time where they 'put their foot in it'... yes, we all have them!

Well, we at Young 1 Productions want to hear them all and Dave Young - The Wedding Comedian will then expertly weave them into the tapestry of his live performance (oh, that's was very poetic!).

Each performance will be tailored to you!
You and your guests should prepare themselves to be rolling around, reaching for oxygen and generally trying to un-raise their collective eyebrows as each joke, funny stories and audience interaction will have them all in stitches!

It's what we like to do!

'Hey, you can't make a wedding omelette without cracking a mother-in-law joke or two!'

Dave Young has always excelled at 'sailing close to the wind' with his unpredictable and totally engaging comedy routines.
'I like to 'get to know' our victims, sorry 'clients' and develop a relationship that quickly identifies what they are looking for in The Wedding Comedian's show'. Dave will create his performance based on you requirements and of course, throw in a few 'surprises' along the way!

The stage is set... Auntie Mary 'is in the house', Uncle Tom is still standing, the Father-in-laws all look broke! and the mother-in-laws all look... well, we'll tell you all about them on the night itself!

Either way, naughty AND nice is the order of the day with fun and laughter all the way!

And they said...

I haven't laughed so hard in a long while!! There were 8 of us sitting near the dance floor so we were all part of the show. Very interactive and so very funny! So much fun to watch the progression of the evening, especially with the priest - We all loved it! I loved his way of 'getting' everyone so fast, he was consistent throughout the show. I would definitely recommend The Wedding Comedian, make sure you have an open mind, a sense of humour & a spare pair of knickers!!

Superb, superb, superb!
The Wedding Comedian was one of the first things booked for our wedding (you need to get in fast when booking this guy) and he delivered an blinding performance for our reception! No one was safe, he had all the goods on us and went to town on our past 'secrets'. We're still laughing!!!!

Book this man... now!

John & Rita Crawford
(Bride & Groom)

From the time I spoke to Dave on the phone to day of the performance he had me in stitches!  A down to earth gent that has our Irish humour down to a T and knows how to entertain any crowd. I seen full grown men cry with laughter, he truly is the best comedian of his time. Made the wedding far from "ordinary"!
