If there ever were a comedian to personify the word “fun”, it would be Dan Telfer. Incorporating a mixture of stand-up and improv, Telfer is quirky, playful, and just flat out hysterical in the most unique way possible. He covers subjects in an unpredictable way with an oftentimes rant-style voice. His comedic stylings are difficult to summarize within a few lines, so it’s best to just explore his work. In addition to performing great stand-up, Telfer has also written for Paste Magazine, The A.V. Club, and The Onion. He currently works on the creative team for @midnight.
What better way to discover Telfer or reinvigorate your interest in him, than a brand new comedy album. The comedian’s Ocean of Panic came out today on aspecialthing Records and it’s great. It covers subjects like raccoon attacks in LA, a super creepy purchase of a gargoyle in Indiana, Scott Baio, muggings gone wrong and homeless heroes. Those who know the Chicago-raised comic from his viral “Best Dinosaur” bit or his work on @midnight will not be disappointed. Now go out and fill your head with some Dan Telfer.
