Dave Jaffe

abouter-dave-768x583Humorist, writer, former Chicago reporter, Dave has written for online media, print, television, and radio.

Creative, clever, witty – these are traits that kept Dave in detention for most of the eighth grade. But as an adult these skills led to award-winning columns, TV and radio commentary, numerous magazine articles and essays, a local Emmy nomination for a television documentary, and even sketches for Bozo the Clown and as a contributing editor for National Lampoon Magazine. His columns also appear on HuffPost and on HumorOutcasts, where humor – and humorists– thrive.

Sleeping Between Giants grew out of Dave’s affinity for dogs. Like them, he prefers to travel in a pack, which has lead to numerous traffic citations. However, he is good with children and has had all his shots.
