want to Thank Dan Bennett for his performance
at our 2013 Mountain Mike’s Pizza Annual Franchisee
Convention. His ability to reach our group and
provide humor and entertainment that was both
family-friendly and universally just “DANBENNETT”
funny went above and beyond my expectations! Dan
tailored his performance to our group specifically
rather than just providing a generic comedy routine.
When he suggested that I introduce him as “The
funniest guy in America” I was a little skeptical.
After seeing him perform, he just might be “THE
FUNNIEST GUY IN AMERICA!”
~ Brad Gordon, President

Four-time U.S. Nationals Juggling
Gold Medal Winner
Bennett learned to juggle in 1970 when he was eight
years old. It was in college however that he discovered
his propensity for comedy. While earning his bachelor’s
degree in mathematics, Dan worked as a teaching assistant
in the math lab. His love for teaching soon spilled
over into tutoring with comedy. Eventually Mr. Bennett
was holding workshops in calculus and mixing mathematics
with humor. While lecturing about ballistics he devised
the object lesson now so central to his performances:
catching a bowling ball with his face. There was no
turning back once he discovered how fun it was to
entertain with math, physics and economics. Intellectual
joke telling evolved into scientific bravado which
in turn utilized the visual aids of juggling, balancing
and prop manipulation. A show was born.
After earning a Master’s degree
in mathematics from UCLA, Dan began headlining on
the major cruise lines and in comedy clubs. Appearing
on the tonight show with Jay Lenno , Arsenio Hall
and other talk shows set Mr. Bennett on a course that
has never turned back. He has been featured in some
30 commercials with corporations such as: McDONALDS,
COCA COLA, NABISCO, NU SKIN, SOUTHWEST AIRLINES, CIRCLE
K, NOVELL, QUAKER OATS, PIER ONE IMPORTS, BIG PLANET,
and BAKER’S SQUARE to name a few.
Dan has four gold medals from
the international juggler’s association and is in
the 1990 Guinness Book of World records for numbers
juggling. These skills are indispensable in his performances
as a science and math variety comedian. He has been
the keynote “comediantic” at several mathematics conferences.
His facility with sports equipment was highlighted
by the Wilson Sports Corporation where Dan entertained
as a comedy product design engineer. This led to some
very interesting special advertising videos with the
company. His trademark counting with Roman numerals
has been used in conjunction with the Merck Corporation
to promote product visibility. The General Motor’s
Saturn division is another beneficiary of the professor’s
high energy “edutainment”. Dan is a regular at sales
meetings and motivational seminars where he showcases
his talent and humor to elevate teamwork and problem
solving. He also appears simply as a variety comedian
for any number of events.
Mr. Bennett has a strong educational
background in the sciences. With his hilarious explanations
and world class skill he can speak and entertain effectively
on numerous topics such as: MATHEMATICS, COMPUTERS,
PHYSICS, ECONOMICS, SALES, BIOLOGY, ENGINEERING, CHEMISTRY,
TEAM BUILDING, PROBLEM SOLVING, etc. He is the solution
to your company’s presentation needs.
It combines skilled manipulation of sports equipment
and everyday objects with original wit, energy and enthusiasm.
His Corporate presentation offers everything from hysterical
history to physics made funny. And this can be customized
for your organization’s needs or just offered as pure
entertainment for your group.
Landings for Weighty Matters"
This presentation is the title theme for the corporate
event and involves Newtonian physics, market corrections
and a bowling ball being caught on the face! Dan Bennett
is a mathemagician of the first order, a language and
prop manipulatist of professonial proportions and world
record legerdemainiac with a name you can swear by.
