Who am I?

I’m Michael Dane, and I have successfully avoided real work for most of my adult life. I did standup comedy in the eighties, appearing regularly at the Comedy Store in Hollywood. I’ve also performed on a frozen lake for the opening of ice-fishing season, at a synagogue for Purim, and at the Oxnard Strawberry Festival. Lately, I’ve taken to writing funny things, instead of saying them.
