"So This Guy Walks into a Comedy Festival..."

So This Guy Walks into a Comedy Festival...
In one year, Dan Boulger has gone from joke-cracking college kid to rising star.

Though he can work blue with the best of them, he’s lanky and baby-faced, and audiences seemed uneasy hearing him spout filth. So two years ago he tweaked his act to break the ice. “I look like I’m 12” is now his opening line, which gets a relieved laugh. Then he tells a prison-sex joke.

But Boulger’s youth has served him well. Last September, as a Curry College student, he became the youngest-ever winner of the Boston Comedy Festival. That earned him spots on Comedy Central and HBO’s comedy festival in Aspen, and presented him with a career opportunity he couldn’t turn down. Boulger hired an agent and quit college, and is now doing comedy full time—traveling the country, waking up at 1 p.m., and telling jokes through the night. “It’s a laid-back job,” he says, then pauses to reconsider. “I’m not even sure it is a job.”

Still working on that hot first release.



Dan Boulger began his comedy career in late 2004 only one week into his freshman year of college. Quickly becoming a favorite in the New England area Boulger started performing nationally after winning the Boston Comedy Festival in 2006 at the age of 20. He has since received recognition form both audiences and industry alike having performed on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The BBC, and the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. Due to his age he is an ideal college performer and has appeared on several high profile college tours such as the Comedy Central Live and College Humor Live tours and has been able to be the supporting act for many famous comedians including Dennis Miller, Joel McHale and Zach Galifianakis.
