About Dave

Dave Peniuk was born to entertain. At the age of 12, he and a friend started taping their own rock n roll radio station, singing to the songs and commenting on the daily grind of elementary school. From there, Dave grabbed his friend’s family's Betamax video camera and started shooting spoof commercials like Toothpaste X – “The Foamiest” and Cleaning Detergent Y – “Leaves Shirts Spotless and just a bit smaller”. From there, Dave quickly moved onto short films where he wrote, directed, edited and co-starred in such favourites as “008 – Silverfinger” and “Nightmare on Beach Drive”.

But then real life took over and Dave became a commercial fisherman (aka “The Deadliest Catch”), a market researcher (yes, part of those annoying telemarketer calls), and then real estate. At the ripe age of 40, Dave realized that nothing else speaks to his soul like acting and entered back into the world of entertainment. He is now a full-time actor working in exotic locations such as Maple Ridge (“Diagnose Me”), Victoria (“Sardaar Ji”), and even Fanny Bay (“After The Wolf”).

When Dave isn’t acting in award winning web-series like “Night Owl High” or the soon to be released hilarious feature film spoof of Friday the 13th – “Camp Death III: The Final Summer”, he can be found in Acting classes with Jeb Beach & Associates and the Actor’s Foundry with Matthew Harrison or learning the funny at the ICI (Improv Comedy Institute).
