About the Instructor

Dan Vetrano

Dan Vetrano is a Philly-based comedian, writer, producer, and is generally quite nice in conversation. He was the host and creator of the shows "Get Work" and "Worst of Philly" at Good Good Comedy Theater, where he regularly performed. He was a two-time finalist in Philly's Phunniest, is a regular host and feature at clubs Helium and Punch Line Philly, and has worked with comics like Dan Cummins, Christian Finnegan, Jaboukie Young-White, Andy Kindler, and Michael Ian Black. In the world of sketch comedy, Dan is one half of the brilliantly named duo Dan & Chris, and one-eighteenth of the high-energy sketch group Darlings which performed in NY Comedy Fest.

As an instructor, Dan somehow manages to strike a magical balance between feisty and deeply empathetic. He makes everyone in his courses feel like they don’t have to take themselves quite so seriously (which honestly might be a key to being an even better comic).
