Dave Gaudet (Chairman of the Board) arrived from the East Coast in 1988 and within months was on the ComedySportz Chicago roster. He learned his craft while attending Denison University as a member of the Burpee's Seedy Theatrical Co. He was the Artistic Director of ComedySportz Chicago from 1989-1992 and again in 2006-2007.  In 1998, he completed a World Tour with CSz and continues to appear at many of theCSz locations across the nation.  He has been a member of the Chicago Bosses in the ComedySportz World  Championships since 1989 and was Captain of the 1997, 2001, and 2007 Championship teams.

His list of theatrical credits include several performances with the Annoyance Theatre and various teams at iO Chicago. Dave has also appeared in other ComedySportz productions such as Whose Chorus Line Is It Anyway?, Blind Date, and The Hot Karl. He would like to thank his wife and three children for allowing him to continue doing what he loves... making people laugh.  (So start laughing or he has to go home.)
