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.

Hey 2nd Amendment folks: We don't want to take away your guns - we just want you to stop pointing them at people and shooting. #tryingtohelp

New piece up at the website, as I dive into the murky waters of social comment . Oh, and it's funny, too.

I dictate text into my phone so often that now I SAY the words 'comma' and 'period' when I'm talking to someone in person. #needtogetoutmore

RT @craigcalcaterra: At the risk of hyperbole, I'm gonna say that Portland is the best place I've ever been.

One square pizza, yet somehow The Girlfriend cut it into 8 pieces, NONE of which are the same size or shape. #highermath
