Dan's turning 40!! But, let's be honest - it's really just a fantastic excuse to throw a helluva party. There will be a great comedy show with performances from Todd Barry and Rory Scovel. 

Dan will provide a brief opener in what is certain to be a hilarious night.

Food and drinks, of course!

Please bring yourself and a guest and really anyone else you want.

Adults only though, Dan told me he intends to "fucking swear".

Dress is cocktail attire or semi-formal.

As Jidenna would say, "I don't want my best dressed day in a casket."

Please no gifts. Your presence is your gift.

Please RSVP at the link below.

Hope to see you there!

When and Where
What was that about comedy? Oh yes, I booked some great comedians for the night. Here's who is and who isn't coming.

Not Wanda Sykes

Todd Barry - When booking the venue, I explained that we'd be having some comedians perform but the event coordinator was insistent that a dance floor in front of the stage was the best way to go for a birthday party. After my emphasis that we not have a dance floor, she exclaimed, "Wanda Sykes performed comedy with the dance floor set-up!". Well, Ma'am, Todd Barry is no Wanda Sykes. He's a deadpan legend who deserves a stage to strut on. Mmmmmm....mmmm...mmmm..mmmm..mmmm.

I can't wait!

Rory Scovel

We are so excited to welcome Rory Scovel - not "shovel" as auto-correct would have it. Rory is hilarious and shares a birthday with Dan!! What are the actual odds?! If you say 1 in 365, I may punch you. Check out his YouTube clips, his comedy specials on Netflix, the delightful Physical on Apple TV, or his many movie appearances.
