"There's nothing funny about the way he looks, until he gives that deadpan look of his," popular blogger Ralph Fatello ( wrote about Rattigan recently. "His outward appearance is something out of a mature GQ magazine. He looks like a cross between a semi hip banker, and your mild-mannered father-in-law. Again, Dave is the master of completely dismantling himself in front of a crowd of strangers. I'm always torn as to whether I should console him, or just laugh my ass off like everyone else. What other job is there where your whole gig is to make fun of yourself? Comedians make fun of themselves. That takes guts and talent. Dave does it in a way that resonates with his audience. Especially when he gets on his age. (He's not that old. 64) But he makes it seem like he's got one foot in the grave. Especially when it comes to the opposite sex. I looked around at all the 60 plus men in the audience, and they were all laughing at each other as were their wives and girlfriends. You know they (comics) are hitting home when the audience starts to point at each other...."

Man-mountain Dan Donahue works in theaters around New England as the opener for Juston McKinney, and he's also shared the stage with Boston headliners such as Jimmy Dunn, Mike McDonald, Christine Hurley, Mike Donovan, Paul Nardizzi and Dave Rattigan.
