Dan Nainan:



Born in Bloomington, Indiana, Dan is the son of a nuclear physicist from Kerala and a child psychologist from Japan. Having first served as a senior engineer at the Intel Corporation, Dan then moved on to the management of strategic relations. Standup comedy was something that he had accidentally come across. In order to get over the fear of facing his audiences that sometimes went up to over a thousand, Dan had decided on joining the Toastmasters club and then moved on to standup comedy where his final performance was in San Fransisco at the Punchline comedy class. This was a success where he was even misunderstood for being a professional comedian. He was then called to perform at different functions at Intel. It was these successes in the field of standup comedy that led the young engineer to pursue his talent in Standup Comedy.
