BIO

Dan was born with part of his face missing, and since then he’s only gotten funnier. An introvert suffering from severe social anxiety, he initially pursued an academic career. Although spending long hours in library basements was certainly exhilarating, Dan discovered that it was not the life he wanted. What he really wanted was to make people laugh (and to avoid manual labor). Thus he became a stand-up comedian, and since then he has performed all over the country. Dan blends offbeat absurdist humor with a personal exploration of his anxiety, occasionally sharing stories about awkward interactions with friends, strangers, and even pigeons (obviously). People frequently describe his material as smart, fun, and weirdly relatable, and he tends to be a crowd favorite. He currently hosts a podcast about joke writing called Dan Has Jokes.
