At the turn of the new Millennium Dan set out to master the art of stand-up comedy. He thought to himself “Contemporary comedy is mostly about butts, why can’t it be more about Apes and Astrophysics?” A decade later Dan returned from Hollywood with the dozens of dollars he made telling ape jokes to drunk astrophysicists. He resides once more in his Mother’s basement where he collects action figures, telescopes and ape movies on laserdisc. Dan is an astronomer and amateur roboticist. You’ll learn something new about the Universe and Primates every time you see him perform.
