Dave Fitzsimmons

Known to many as “Fitz,” Dave Fitzsimmons is the Editorial Cartoonist, and Humor Columnist, for The Arizona Daily Star, where he has entertained readers since Geronimo began working there as a paperboy. Today, Fitz, a Pulitzer Finalist, is internationally syndicated to over 800 news sites around the world including USA Today, The Washington Post, and The New York Times.

Fitz is known as the “Fastest draw West of the Potomac,” performing his hilarious easel talks in every conference banquet hall and RV park south of the Arctic Circle, including venues in Denver, Portland, Palm Springs, Hartford, Seattle, Reno, Toronto, New Orleans Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. No one in his audience is safe when he pulls out his easel and uncaps his pen. He is a “Flaming moderate at the fringe of America’s center,” and loves reading hate mail from his readers.
