Dan Tackage – Australia
Dan Tackage as performed in Singapore, Japan, the Philippines, Thailand, Thailand, Vietnam and Australia. He has also performed at the Crackhouse Comedy Festival and LOLFest in Malaysia. Despite having a fear of flying, only being able to speak English (barely) and being incredibly introverted, Dan's work forces him to mingle with all kinds of people from South East Asia, even those annoying expats. This frequent travel leads to a steady number of misadventures which Dan shares with his audiences, although he sees it more as therapy. So come along and laugh at the misfortunate adventures of Dan Tackage.
