Dave ‘Gruber’Allen bio:

Dave ‘Gruber’ Allen grew up in Naperville, Illinois, and is a graduate of Augustana College in Rock Island. He may be best known for his work on the 1990 TV series Higgins Boys and Gruber and playing guidance counselor Jeff Rosso on the Judd Apatow-produced comedy-drama Freaks and Geeks. He also plays Mr. Kwest on Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide and a town troubadour on Gilmore Girls. Allen also plays the "Naked Trucker" - a character that first appeared as part of a sketch comedy show Two-Headed Dog. In 1998, at the invitation of Largo owner Mark Flannigan, Dave began to appear as the Naked Trucker as a solo act, opening at Largo in L.A. for Tenacious D, Jon Brion, and others. The act was an instant success and soon expanded to include David Koechner, who plays "T-Bones." Koechner and Allen starred in The Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show on Comedy Central, which was picked up for 8 episodes.

As of November 2009, Allen continues to tour with Cinematic Titanic as the MC of the pre-show warm up act. In 2010, Allen was featured as a sci-fi author in season two of Party Down and made a cameo in the film The Mother of Invention as Dr. Henry Miller. In 2011, Allen had a role in the movie Bad Teacher.
