Biography

Dave Schwensen's professional background enables him to bring unique solutions to common problems. A veteran of the fast-paced and high stress entertainment industry in Hollywood and New York, he worked behind the scenes as a talent coordinator and consultant for television networks, film studios and live performance venues. With egos and star power often clashing on a daily basis, he developed a set of communication skills to promote teamwork and meet deadlines through his experiences with many of today's top stars and production companies.

Mr. Schwensen designs and instructs courses in Business Communications and Presentation Skills for Cleveland State University, Youngstown State University, and others. He has been a consultant, trainer, keynote speaker, and workshop leader since 1994.

Dave Schwensen is the author of How To Be A Working Comic, (Back Stage Books, NYC), and Comedy FAQs And Answers, (Allworth Press, NYC). Though not a stand-up comedian, his insider's knowledge of the entertainment industry was earned as Talent Coordinator for the television show, A&E's An Evening At The Improv, and the legendary Improv Comedy Clubs in Hollywood and New York City. While in this capacity he also acted as a comedy consultant for many television and film productions. Included in this list are The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman, The Today Show, Comedy Central, HBO, MTV, Disney, Paramount, and many other major television networks and film studios.

Mr. Schwensen has been featured on PBS Television and Radio and in the Chicago Tribune, U.S. News & World Report, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Hollywood Reporter, InsideBiz.com Magazine, Ohio Magazine, and many others. He has also made numerous national and regional television and radio appearances as a featured author and consultant.

Dave Schwensen's third book, The Beatles in Cleveland, was published in 2007 and has landed on numerous best-seller lists, including National Top 40 on Amazon.com for "Biographies & Memoirs" and "Composers & Musicians." The unexpected success of this title, (He claims he wrote it just for fun), has spun-off his multimedia pop culture presentation "Beatlemania on the Northcoast," which is a magical history tour back to the 1960's. His new book, The Beatles At Shea Stadium will be released later this year.

Dave Schwensen was tired of making his hometown a vacation spot every year, and so he relocated from Hollywood to the South Shore of Lake Erie. His current inspiration and frequent cast of characters for his award-winning weekly newspaper humor column Something to Laugh About include wife Debutant Deb, sons Dangerous Paul and Chaos Kevin, and a large dog named Snickers who is fond of eating television remote controls.
