David Edwards — Real World Season 2: Los Angeles
Comedian David Edwards has the distinction of being the first cast member to be kicked off the show. Though he clashed with southerner Jon Brennan and actress Beth Stolarczyk, it was an altercation with Tami ”Roman that led to his dismissal.
Memorable moment: Dragging a half-naked Tami across the floor as he tried to pull a blanket off her. She later yelled at him that his stunt “wasn’t not funny!” and the roommates voted him out of the house.
After the show, David didn’t immediately disappear from the public eye. He appeared in several episodes of In Living Color and the movie Half Baked. In a recent interview with Blog talk radio, the former Real Worlder said he’s still traveling with his stand-up comedy and directing shorts. David admitted of the incident with Tami had an impact of its career. “It kind of knocked it off its axis,” he says. Ironically, he and Tami have daughters that attend the same high school.
