Who Plays Dave in 'Pretty Smart'?

On Pretty Smart, when Claire puts herself on the dating market, she runs into a handsome guy at pottery class named Dave. They hit it off and decide they want to try out a relationship! Dave is played by Kevin Miles but before landing his role on this hilarious Netflix sitcom, he starred in a handful of State Farm’s funniest commercials as Jake.

For those who might not remember the details of this particular commercial too well, it showcases a wife creeping on her husband as he's on a late-night phone call talking about something that sounds a little shady. He explains to his wife he’s simply on a call with Jake from State Farm. She doesn’t believe it until she snatches the phone to hear Jake‘s voice for herself.

In another State Farm commercial, Jake comforts a runaway bride who's having doubts on her wedding day. He even shared screen time with Chris Paul, the basketball star, in another commercial called "The Dunk." Kevin was also part of State Farm's first-ever Super Bowl ad last year which also starred Paul Rudd, Drake, Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes. These commercials all share one major thing in common — Kevin's perfect comic timing.

Is Dave an important character on 'Pretty Smart'?

There’s a slight love triangle dynamic going on between the characters of Pretty Smart before Dave’s character is introduced on the show. We’re talking about the love triangle between Grant, Claire, and Chelsea. Grant is still in love with Claire because they dated in the past and although they describe their breakup as being mutual, his feelings never faded.

In the meantime, Chelsea has fallen for Grant which makes things a lot more complicated since she’sClaire’s older sister! Claire has no interest in being part of the messy love triangle and that becomes abundantly clear when she meets Dave.
