      Stand Up Comedy at Walker's Bluff - Dan Chopin

      Includes show and buffet! From Bob and Tom, A and E, MTV, PBS, Showtime, HBO and more, it's DAN CHOPIN! Growing up as the youngest in a large, loud family in St. Louis, Missouri, Dan Chopin (SHOW-pan) learned at an early age that in order to be heard you had to speak up. He quickly realized that it helped to have something funny and interesting to say. In high school and later in college at the University of Missouri, Dan worked is a series of local bands singing and playing either the drums or guitar. But George Carlin, Martin Mull and Saturday Night Live took over Dan’s interest in the mid 70s and by the end of the decade Dan was cutting his stand-up teeth at local open-mics nights, frat parties, bowling joints and nightclubs around town. When the comedy boom hit in the mid 80s, Dan hit the road as a full time stand-up comedian and has not looked back. By the late 80s and early 90s Dan lived in Los Angeles and became a regular at the Improvisation in Hollywood and the Punchline in San Francisco. That soon led to appearances on A&E’s Evening at the Improv (six times), MTV’s Half-Hour Comedy Hour, Showtime’s Comedy Club Network and PBS’s Comedy Tonight. “…A first-rate comedian.” -St. Louis Post-Dispatch “Witty and entertaining…” -Variety Magazine “Great comedian…we had a blast…” -Patty Shelly, Susan G. Koman Foundation “Great show…we highly recommend him.” -Stuart Purcell, Hawker-Beechcraft “Excellent show!” -Rob McCormick, Crawfordsville Country Club “Dan is one funny guy…” -Brian Lorenz, Missouri Broadcaster’s Association Tickets are an additional $5 at the door.
