Initially starting stand-up “in secret, ” Dan began hitting open mics in and around Nashville in the fall of 1998. Unsure how the police department would react, he did the prudent thing and didn’t tell them. By 1999 he had won the KDF Talent Search and the local news agencies began reporting on the detective with the unusual side job.
With the police departments blessings, Dan continued to juggle both jobs, traveling and performing on his days off. In February 2001, Dan performed in front of 750 people to win the title “World’s Funniest Cop” at the ASLET World Police Championships in Orlando, Florida.
In December of 2002, Dan was named the Metro Nashville Investigator of the year for his part in the investigation of a serial robber/rapist described by the Tennessean as one of Nashville’s most brazen armed robbers.
In May of 2005, Dan left the police department and began traveling as a full time comedian, generating laughs from all over the country. With a laid back style, intelligent, unique material and a thick southern drawl, he is building a fan base at venues across America.
Dan has performed with such acts as Tim Wilson, Ralphie May Killer Beaz, Josh Blue, Jake Johannnsen, Janet Williams, Dave Coulier, Mike Armstrong, and Jay Leno among others.
