Kukla's Korner Hockey

Hockey Player Turned Comic

From Kristie Rearick at South Jersey Life:

Dave “The Hammer” Schultz, who is famous for his time on the ice is now spending time on stage. This Flyers legend is in the spotlight once again, but this time comedy—not hockey—is his focus.

“I’ve done a lot of public speaking at events over the years,” Schultz said in a phone interview. “I would tell a lot of jokes at the events ... so I eventually took this comedy class in Philly and I ended up doing a few comedy gigs at churches and charity events.”

His act caught the attention of a magazine reporter and eventually comedians also took notice. Louis “Twitchels” Centanni and the Reverend Bob Levy saw him perform and asked him to be a part of their show, “The Killers of Comedy.”
