As a senior engineer with Intel, Dan Nainan presented technical demonstrations on stage with Chairman Andy Grove at events all over the world. Nainan took a comedy class to help get over the fear of public speaking. His first performance was a success, and his coworkers, upon viewing the videotape, invited him to perform at Intel's sales conference for 2,500 people. His impressions of Grove and Bill Clinton had the audience rolling in the aisles. Many in the audience thought that Nainan had been hired as a professional comedian. He left Intel pursue standup comedy full-time. Nainan has toured extensively as the opening act for Russell Peters. He performs all over the world and has performed with noted comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Conway. He has been seen on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" and on various television commercials.
