Davis has appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, Inside Amy Schumer, Last Week Tonight, and Boardwalk Empire. He also appeared in an interesting short video for The New Yorker a few years back about scraping to work his way up the comedy career ladder. As he said in that video of the vulnerability of performing in front of people: "I could say something that really upsets you -- or really make you laugh. That risk, I love."

The show at the Proctors Underground is Saturday, August 20 at 8 pm. It will also include a host and a guest comedian opener.

Also on the Pretty Much upcoming slate: Shane Torres on July 30. Tickets for that show are also $15 ahead / $20 day of.

The Pretty Much the Best Comedy Show series has turned out to be a good opportunity to catch comedians on the rise. A few of the comedians gone on to much wider success not too long after appearing there, including Aparna Nancherla and Josh Gondelman.
