Originally from Aurora, CO, Dan Soder started doing stand-up at 21 while attending the University of Arizona. After two years of playing clubs and casinos all over the southwest, Dan decided he’d had enough of extreme heat and venomous animals, so he moved to New York to get serious about stand-up. After living in New York for 6 years Dan has been featured on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” Conan, and appeared on Opie and Anthony. This year you can see him on Comedy Central’s The Half Hour and also see his commentary as a new cast member of MTV2’s “Guy Code.
