David Sean "Dave" Anthony (born August 26, 1967) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, television writer, and podcaster.
Anthony was the creator, producer, and editor of Walking the Room, a podcast that he co-hosted with comedian Greg Behrendt from 2010 to 2014. The two became friends over two decades ago during the early days of Anthony's stand-up career. They hosted a show together on the Comedy World Radio Network in 2001 and collaborated again on The Greg Behrendt Show in 2006–2007. He currently co-hosts the historical comedy podcast The Dollop with comedian Gareth Reynolds.
Anthony has had numerous roles in television, films, and commercials, and has been a guest on various late night shows and podcasts. He was a contributing writer for SuicideGirls and the Comedy Film Nerds websites, and had a blog called Stop All Monsters. He has done stand-up all over the world and frequently performs around Southern California. He is also currently a writer, most recently on AMC's Talking Dead and on IFC's Maron for which he was nominated for a WGA Award in 2015.
On July 9, 2015, Alan Bellows from the history website/podcast Damn Interesting posted an open letter titled, "A Special Note to the Writers at the Dollop" accusing the Dollop (a history podcast written by Anthony) of repeatedly plagiarizing Damn Interesting's original content as well as content from other websites. Bellows classified Anthony's usage as plagiarism because the works were read mostly verbatim without permission or attribution. The letter included 2,670 words of examples of plagiarized writings, and a link to further examples.
Plagiarism Today reported on Anthony's misdeeds, concluding, "While there’s room for homage and parody, this was a case of neither. This was as [sic] podcast using third party created work as a jumping off point for their jokes and giving no attribution back. I’m glad that they are fixing the issue, but to say it isn’t a plagiarism issue is, in my eyes, a tremendous stretch."
The Dollop subsequently deleted the offending episodes from their websites and established a new, separate website to cite their sources in the future.
