Dan was excellent. He arrived 25 minutes early and was prepared to perform. Dan performed for 30 minutes and had everyone laughing the entire time. Dan's performance was worth 10 times more than what he requested for payment. One of my guest hired him immediately after his performance for their event in two weeks. I highly recommend Dan for anyone's event. I certainly will hire him again. Thanks for all the laughs Dan. Your Great!
Response from Dan Marse-Kapr:

Dan Marse-Kapr is a stand-up comedian from Baltimore with a unique sense of humor and a laid-back stage presence that audiences love. His comedy covers a wide variety of topics, including aquarium memberships, a lemonade stand sabotaged by his father, and the historical origins of garden gnomes. He specializes in short jokes and one-liners.
Dan grew up in rural, small-town New York, and became interested in stand-up comedy at an early age. He was especially fond of the absurdist humor of Steven Wright and Mitch Hedberg. Although he was years away from becoming a live performer, he found many early opportunities to develop his comedy writing skills through personal film projects.
In college he helped create a semi-comedic radio show called The Dan, Dan, and Mordecai Show, where he and his friend Dan were joined by a fictional third host named Mordecai, a mysterious DJ whose voice was never heard, which the other hosts attributed to a faulty microphone. The show lasted for two years, and regularly received phone calls from hecklers. After college, the two Dans co-wrote and recorded a satirical movie commentary for the 1996 Arnold Schwarzenegger film Eraser, which became the featured submission on (link hidden) in March 2014, and ranked at #24 of Rifftrax’s Top 50 “iRiffs.” (They even received fan mail!)
In 2013, Dan received a master's degree but decided against his original plan of pursuing an academic career. Instead, he moved to Baltimore with his wife, and several months later he entered the world of stand-up comedy. His educational background proved to be a strong asset; his years of studying subjects like philosophy and ancient history resulted in a sharp, analytical wit and an acute sensitivity to the absurdity of everyday life. As a result, people frequently describe Dan's material as smart, fun, and original.
Dan has performed in clubs and festivals all over the country, opening for Laurie Kilmartin, Dan St. Germain, and Mark Normand, and headlining shows in the Baltimore area. In 2017, he was featured in the "Best of the Fest" lineup for the Burbank Comedy Festival in Los Angeles. He was a 2016 finalist in the New Comedian of the Year Competition hosted by Magooby's Joke House, and won the Herron Entertainment 2017 Spring Comedy Contest at Eastville Comedy Club. Dan has also studied short-form and long-form improv with Baltimore Improv Group (BIG).
Dan's unique brand of comedy is a consistent crowd-pleaser, whether the audience is big or small. Those who see him perform are guaranteed a memorable, highly entertaining experience.
