Hot off a killer run on this season’s America’s Got Talent (being
only comedian to be voted into the semi-finals), Dan Naturman is also
known to his fans as the “real winner” of Last Comic Standing 2, Dan
was the favorite of celebrity “judges” Drew Carey and Brett Butler. Dan
Naturman began performing stand-up comedy several years ago in,
believe it or not, law school. After graduation he decided to devote himself
to stand-up full time. Comedy, he discovered, was his true passion.
Besides, his grades were bad and nobody would hire him.
Dan’s charming combination of self-deprecation and outright
grouchiness has had audiences howling from coast to coast and has
earned him spots on NBC’s Last Comic Standing (Seasons 2 & 7),
The Late Show with David Letterman (4x), The Tonight Show with
Conan O’Brien, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Comedy Central’s
“Premium Blend” as well as his very own “Comedy Central
Presents… Dan Naturman” special.
Don’t miss the chance to see this very funny man in action!
