At the age of 5, Dan Mogol learned what stand-up comedy is and dreamed of being stage one day. Fourteen years later, Dan made his stand-up debut in Los Angeles at The World Famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip. The passion was there but the timing was not right. Comedy had to go on hold. In those 7 years, the focus was college, slinging food, pounding nails, swinging an axe and even took a few turns at being a salesman. The jobs list goes on & on. The whole time all he wanted to do was make people laugh. With life experiences notched and the ability to engage a crowd, Dan made his real run at Stand up in 2010.
In his first year of doing stand up, Dan was a Semifinalist in the 2010 Acme Comedy Company - Twin Cities Funniest Person Contest. Four years later he became Runner Up in the 2014 House of Comedy - Funniest Person With a Day Job Contest. Dan has become known throughout the Midwest for his incorporation of masterful impressions, skillful writing and captivating stage presence. As a lover of food, drink and the outdoors, Dan truly is a Minnesota sweetheart. One of the many things people can take away from his act is just how relatable he is. Dan has taken his talents to other realms including radio, TV commercials, acting, and sketch comedy, making him a force to be reckoned with in the world of comedy.
