Super Dave Osborne is a character created and played by comedian Bob Einstein. The first Super Dave Osborne appearance was on The John Byner Comedy Hour, a 1972 TV series. Super Dave also appeared regularly on the short-lived 1976 variety series Van Dyke and Company.
The character of Super Dave is supposedly an “accomplished” stuntman, though he rarely succeeds during performances. His trademark is to perform outrageous stunts which always go wrong and result in his severe injury.
Super Dave is often accompanied by a loyal friend and sidekick, Fuji Hakayito, played by comedian Art Irizawa. Hayakito also acts as an assistant stunt coordinator.

Super Dave doesn’t only entertain, his character also served as an inspiration of the fictional “Super Dave Compound”— the venue for his stunts. Many of his misadventures demonstrate the various aspects of the compound, adding to the overall scope of the Super Dave franchise.
