Bonnaroo Comedian | Dan Soder
Stage & Time | TBA
Bonnaroo has always been about more than just music, and nothing exemplifies that better than the impressive array of comedians the fest recruits for its Comedy Theatre each summer. The 2015 lineup is no exception, and, for the first time, we’ve decided to spotlight each performer individually as we’ve done for musical acts for the last several years. Catching comedy is tough, since it sometimes requires missing out on musical acts, but, trust us, it’s an incredible experience. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Comedian of the Day…
Hailing from Colorado, standup comic and TV personality Dan Soder got his start performing in comedy while attending the University of Arizona. Looking to distance himself from some of his early material and to start taking comedy more seriously, Soder relocated to New York City after a run in the southwest, and has since hit some major comedy milestones as an up and comer. Soder has made multiple appearances on Conan (his national TV debut), appeared on MTV’s Guy Code, Opie & Anthony (and, more frequently, the new Opie with Jim Norton), Comedy Central’s The Half Hour and Live at Gotham, a plethora of podcasts, and much more. Voted funniest comedian at the New York Comedy Festival, Dan has also appeared at the Just For Laughs Festival as well as SXSW, making him a seasoned, versatile choice for Bonnaroo’s impressive comedy slate. Soder’s style is topical, smart, and observational, and his routine harbors tons of originality and broad appeal. Watch a clip from Conan below!
