Dan calls his solo theatre program A Cheap Evening of Expensive Theatre. Critics call it "a breathtaking display of theatricality that's sharp, funny and highly inventive" (In Pittsburgh Weekly).

Repeat invitations are common, and that's not necessarily a good thing. Because Kalamazoo's New Year's Fest hired him ten years in a row, there are now people in that town who can do Dan's show.
You can hire one of them if Dan's not available.
