It's noon and in Los Angeles there is one hilarious individual and right now he's sleeping. Yes, sleeping. It's noon. The temperature is rising. The Sun is starring daggers at us and this man, Detroit-native SANDY DANTO continues his slumber. Why is he sleeping? Because he can. The difference between the reader and him is that when he wakes up, he's not popping out of a dream. He's living in it. He's living it. Sandy on stage is like watching Lebron James try out for Freshman basketball at St. Vincent- St. Mary, they both had to take bathroom breaks. Joking aside, Danto goes up everywhere. His resume is a who's who of legendary (and not so legendary) comedy clubs around the world. His actual life lends itself to the most unique stories that could be written for TV and film. He references tough times in his life that in no way, should be funny, but he pulls off the job. The reaction received from taking in his creativity isn't just a laugh or a "That's funny"; it's a thought process that activates inspiration and emotion and you'll be grateful for it. Sandy moved to Hollywood after studying at Indiana University while taking summer classes at Second City in Detroit. He immediately started working at National Lampoon upon landing in Los Angeles. He is a character actor, but is equally comfortable playing himself and did so plenty during his stint with the Lampoon. In addition to his on camera work, he writes, directs and produces comedy shorts, which is what he was hired to do for National Lampoon in the first place. He's appeared on Mad TV and Comedy Central's Mash up. He goes on tour with 90's icon Pauly Shore all over the world and built a name for himself that he carries back to LA on his back and throws down at the steps of his apartment, where he gets back to work, writing jokes. Whether or not any success, paid gigs or applause fulfill him, isn't even relevant at this point. His presence on stage as a performer and friend is relevant in itself. Anything else is bonus and whether or not you laugh, isn't. He'll be fine because, after all, he's just dreaming.
