Scottsdale Comedy Spot presents Dan Horn
October 19, 2015
Stand-up Ventriloquist Dan Horn (and his “Cast of Several”) has been entertaining audiences for over two and a half decades. Horn”s technique, manipulation and excellent comic timing turn his one-man show into a true ensemble experience. Dan’s national television appearances include Showtime’s Comedy Club Network, A&E”s An Evening at the Improv, Fox”s Comic Strip Live, VH-1″s Stand-Up Spotlight with Rosie O”Donnell, NBC’s Vicki! with Vicki Lawrence and Penn and Teller”s Sin City Spectacular on FX, to name just a few.
A topper on the bill at comedy clubs, colleges, cruises, and venues in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, this recipient of the “International Ventriloquist of the Year” award and the A.P.C.A. award for “Best Novelty/Variety Act” on the college market has also appeared with such performers as Rita Rudner, David Spade and Jay Leno. “I started practicing ventriloquism and working with puppets when I was about five years old—because I had no friends!”–Dan Horn, Stand-Up Ventriloquist!
When Dan Horn began talking to inanimate objects and then making them talk back, he had no way of knowing his childhood hobby would later become a thriving career—one that would (so far) involve him with city and state governments, legendary Arizona television shows, give him the chance to meet wonderful people (like Jimmy Nelson, Paul Winchell and Edgar Bergen), take him all over the world and provide him with innumerable rewarding experiences.
