For the past decade, Dan spent much of his time performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. His show, An Evening With The Trumpet Boys, which enjoyed an 8 month run at the theatre, was a “hilarious night of sketch comedy” according to the the New York Times. He also performed as an actor on Maude Night, the UCB’s premiere sketch comedy night.
Dan’s latest work has been greatly influenced by his concern over widespread phone addiction and how it affects inter and intrapersonal relationships. He wrote a children’s book called Hey Zoey! Get Off Your Phone! and raised $9k on Kickstarter to make it a reality. He wrote, produced, directed and acted in a commercial parody series for The Light Phone called Introducing The Smartphone™, which has hundreds of thousands of views across multiple platforms. He recorded an album partially about phone addiction with his band The Various Artists and released a music video for his song The Ballad Of Crane Neck Jones.
Dan has interviewed many famous celebrities for Yahoo! Movies and once performed a Stupid Human Trick on the Late Show With David Letterman. People love to talk to him about that.
