Dave & Dave's Excellent AdventuresDAVE & DAVE’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURES
“This show is Pittsburgh as seen through two regular Pittsburgher’s eyes,” is how co-creator Dave Hallewell describes the program. Hallewell, along with Dave Rhodes, make up “the Dave’s” and have been regular correspondents for OnQ, WQED’s live, nightly news magazine show, since it began in 2000. Dave & Dave still contribute regular stories to OnQ, as well as host, produce and edit the Dave & Dave’s Excellent Adventures television series.

Like "Die Hard" or "Police Academy," Dave & Dave get their sequel on & bring you the next chapter of "Eat Pennsylvania!" With twice as much frozen custard as the original... get ready for another gut-busting hour of Zeps, Kolaches, Peeps, Growlers, Jiggers and more delicious food fun from all over the Keystone State! The show is called "Eat Pennsylvania 2: The Second Course with Dave & Dave," and it is the sequel to the Telly Award-winning, "Eat Pennsylvania." Please wait at least 8 hours after watching before you go swimming! more info

For the next chapter in Dave & Dave's "docu-comedy" series devoted to the gems of Pennsylvania, get ready to celebrate the strangest and most unusual people, places and events this state has to offer.

Pennsylvania's Offbeat MuseumsPENNSYLVANIA’S OFFBEAT MUSEUMS
Dave & Dave (Rhodes & Hallewell) produce and host this remarkable collection of Pennsylvania's "true" riches. Our style, part Barnum & Bailey, part Hanna-Barbera, will make for the most un-museum, museum show ever! And that's a good thing.
