Song: “Wolfpack” from the concept album “Edge of the World” by Ethan Slater and Nick Blaemire

Dan is a Southern California transplant coming to you all the way from New Jersey, which isn’t as bad as Broadway makes you think it is. He promises. He has spent ten years performing in the theme park industry working for Mickey Mouse, Snoopy, and Bugs Bunny respectively. Though upon realizing that animals have a tough time providing health care, he moved on. He has since racked up a collection of film and stage credits that he doesn’t want to bore you with, but the one he won’t shut up about is playing Boy in Peter and the Starcatcher. This is due to his intense Peter Pan complex which also makes him wish he didn’t let “ten years” slip out earlier. In his spare time he likes to indulge in retail therapy he can’t afford to cope with life’s hardships and dressing up as various pop culture icons. He is grateful to be back at OC Cabaret and hopes to make at least one person smile. @hausofbyrne on Instagram and TikTok.

It is a privilege to be here and perform for you all and he would like to thank Kelsey for working so hard to put this together, his wife Marie and finally everyone here for braving the traffic to support live performance.
