Evine viewers and upscale jewelry lovers are very familiar with vendor Sonia Bitton, with her great French accent and fabulous baubles.
What they may not know is that her son, David Bluvband, is an up-and-coming comedian, actor and filmmaker.
Bitton often mentions her offspring on the No. 3 home shopping network, but he particularly caught our eye when we saw that he had appeared on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Night” show as a guest in a skit. We know we’ve beaten this dead horse before, but Colbert lives in our town of Montclair, N.J.
It was a funny bit.
Bluvband is a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade comic group, and has his bona fides in the entertainment world.
Here is the blurb on him from the UCB’s website, and it does reference his mom Bitton.
David is a comedian/filmmaker born and raised in NYC. He has been studying at UCB since 2006, and has had the pleasure of studying with a plethora of wonderful teachers.
He has been apart of a whole bunch of shows at UCB including The Macroscene, The Movie, Too Many Guns, Relationship Cycles, The Brooks Brothers Clambake, Sketch Cram, The Honeymen: A Salute To Honey, Rewrite Movie Night, and former Harold Teams, dybbuk, Dance Break, GoodGirl, The Enemy, 32k, and currently performs with the team Brightlight.
David can be seen playing the Human Fish on Fusion’s The Chris Gethard Show, and has also appeared on Broad City and The Knick. He co-directed a web series called Last Night with John Trowbridge, which Splitsider called “Totally funny and unapologetically rude.” He makes a lot of videos you can find on the internet, usually with Riley Soloner.
David is also a photographer, who’s work has been on display in famous galleries like the UCB East Hot Chick’s Room and his mom’s living room.
