Comedian Dan Bennett on The Hump Day News Report – 10PM EDT – 8/20
Our guest tonight will be Dan Bennett, Corporate Juggler, Mathematician and Comedian. Tami and I met Dan during a cruise to Alaska last summer. We saw him perform and then invited him to our political discussion groups. He is talented, funny, very knowledgeable about current events and of course conservative.
Dan Bennett is a “mathemagician” of the first order, a language and prop manipulatist of professorial proportions with a name you can swear by (Dan Bennett!!*$!!).
He combines skilled manipulation of sports equipment and everyday objects with original wit, energy and lots of enthusiasm.
Dan Bennett learned to juggle in 1970 when he was eight years old. It was in college, however, that he discovered his propensity for comedy.
While earning his bachelor`s degree in mathematics, Dan worked as a teaching assistant in the math lab. His love for teaching soon spilled over into tutoring with comedy.
Eventually Mr. Bennett was torturing children by holding workshops in calculus. I hate math. But Dan mixed mathematics with humor. While lecturing about ballistics he devised the object lesson now so central to his performances: catching a bowling ball with his face.
I like Dan...but hate bowling and math...a good thing because we will be talking not bowling, nor adding.
There was no turning back once he discovered how fun it was to entertain with math, physics and economics. Intellectual joke telling evolved into scientific bravado which in turn utilized the visual aids of juggling, balancing and prop manipulation.
What you will find out about Dan tonight, however, is that he just so happens to be a razor sharp Conservative!
Listen in as Tami, Dan and I discuss Ferguson, ISIS, and other critical current events.
