Susannah Francis' interview with Dave Ebert. Dave is the founder of Well Versed Comedy and creator of PureFest: Chicago's Faith-Based Improv and Sketch ….
He is a Chicago-land native who grew up in southwestern Virginia and was always a ham and jokester. Dave has loved entertaining people his entire life. In the summer of 1992, Dave initially became saved at a camp prior to his sixth-grade year. Afterward, he drifted and lost his way. A long battle with depression finally turned in Dave's favor, when he answered God's call in January 2013. This led him back home to Chicago to pursue acting and comedy as his ministry. Dave's performing experiences date back to the early 1990s when he performed in church plays. Dave's resume includes several years as an on-air deejay at a Top 40 station and a Country station; many years as a PA Announcer at basketball, baseball, and football games; eight years in pro-wrestling; and some comedy improv training at Second City and Gorilla Tango Theater. In June 2015, Dave married his best friend and the love of his life, Bobbie. Together, they serve God through Well Versed and other ministries.
