Dan Telfer is a lugubrious sprite who wrote and performed comedy in Chicago for 15 years before moving to Los Angeles. He's toured as an opener for Maria Bamford, Brian Posehn and Patton Oswalt. You may have noticed his debut CD EP Fossil Record as a split release with Greg Proops and Paul F. Tompkins, or his debut full length CD Tendrils of Ruin, both on AST Records. In 2011, he performed at the Chicago Just For Laughs Festival's Best of the Fest show, the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival's Talk of the Fest show, and the coveted New Faces of Comedy showcase of both festivals. His writing has appeared inPaste Magazine, The Onion, and The A.V. Club. But he is perhaps known best for his stand-up chunk "The Best Dinosaur," which became a runaway viral video hit and earned him an internet following.
