Dan Telfer is a lugubrious sprite who has been writing and performing comedy in Chicago since 1996, but that has not stopped him from appearing on popular LA podcasts such as Comedy Bang Bang and Doug Loves Movies. He's toured as an opener for Maria Bamford, Brian Posehn, and Patton Oswalt. You may have noticed his debut CD EP "Fossil Record" on AST Records as a split release with Greg Proops and Paul F. Tompkins. In 2011 he performed in "Best of the Fest" in the Chicago Just For Laughs Festival, Montreal's "Talk of the Fest," and the "New Faces" showcases of both festivals. His writing has appeared in Paste Magazine, The A.V. Club, and the official book based on the TV Show 'Mad Men: The Illustrated World.' But he is perhaps known best for his stand-up chunk "The Best Dinosaur," which became a runaway viral video hit.
