Dan St. Germain hits Cap City this week

Dan St GermainA rising star in the standup scene and one of my personal favorites, Dan St. Germain will be at Cap City tonight through Saturday. Dan was chosen as featured comic in Variety’s annual prestigious “10 Comics To Watch” list and has appeared on such shows as Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show. He’s the creator and star of the web series Kicking Dan Out and co-hosts a podcast with Sean Donnelly called My Dumb Friends. His first album, Bad at the Good Times, is forthcoming from aspecialthing Records and he recently sold a pilot to Fox. Dan generously agreed to answer some last minute questions and did not disappoint.

What’s your favorite thing about being a standup?

New bits that don’t suck.

Who inspires you?

Life sized busts in my own image.

How would you describe your comedy to an old lady sitting next to you on a plane?

“It’s a lot of personal stories mixed with act outs mixed with… Who are we kidding? Let’s make out right now.”

Congrats on your deal with Fox! What can you tell us about the show?

Well right now it’s a script deal and we’re hoping it moves to pilot. Fingers crossed. Dustin, a complete train wreck, moves back in with his ex girlfriend and her new boyfriend in hopes of learning from his past mistakes and growing as a man. It’s kind of like What About Bob meets Forgetting Sarah Marshall but a TV show!

 

 Dan St. Germain performs at Cap City Comedy Club October 30th – November 2nd. Doug Mellard  features and Duncan Carson hosts so this should be a phenomenal show. Tickets are available here.
