Crackers Comedy Club Downtown Welcomes Quinn Dahle

Crackers Comedy Club Downtown presents the HILARIOUS Quinn Dahle from Wed Feb 5 – Sat Feb 8! Also, don’t forget that our downtown weekend hours have changed THIS week. Friday and Saturday shows are now 7:45 and 10Pm.

With appearances on The Tonight Show, Showtime, Comedy Central, Lopez Tonight and Carson Daly, Quinn is a smart, clean and witty stand-up comic with impeccable timing. He has worked with such names as Robin Williams, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Dana Carvey, Norm McDonald, Jon Lovitz, Bill Maher, Frank Caliendo, David Alan Grier, John Witherspoon, Tommy Chong, John Pinette and Harland Williams.

Originally from Minnesota, Quinn has lived in Colorado and Arizona before settling in Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in comedy. He tours from coast to coast and has even entertained our troops as far away as Japan. Quinn’s comedy appeals to all age groups and ethnicities and he loves to talk about them all. Being married to a Mexican-American girl from east L.A., he is never short of material. However, audiences often come back just for his improvisational crowd work where he can be the most spontaneous.

Crackers Comedy Club Broad Ripple Welcomes Dan Davidson

Crackers in Broad Ripple is thrilled to have comedian, Dan Davidson, joining us the last weekend on January from Wed January 29 – Sat February 1.

Recognized as one of the top comedians by comedy clubs across the country and hailed by critics as one of the sharpest and wittiest live performers in the business. Davidson’s material is packed with provocative witticisms and edgy undertones. He hits the stage with an instant likability and draws the audience in with his charm. He has the rare ability to put people at ease while interacting with an audience resulting in the Chicago Sun-Times to say “quick with the audience, …everybody laughed”. His confidence inspired the Indianapolis Star to say “A natural, …sexy”.

Dan Davidson recently had the pleasure of performing for the troops based in the Middle East on the Red, White and a little Bluer tour. He has appeared on Comedy Central – Short Attention Span Theater, Fox – A Night of Comedy. He has been a guest numerous times on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and his material has been aired on satellite radio. Davidson has worked with a wide range of performers such as David Alan Grier, Brett Butler, Bobby Slayton, Kevin Pollack, Bryan Callen and opened for musical acts such as The Counting Crows and The Wallflowers.

Davidson has sharpened his comedic timing and live performances through his 4,000 plus shows which keeps him in high demand.

He is a regular at The Improvs, Funny Bones, Catch A Rising Stars, Zanies and many other independent comedy clubs. He has made numerous appearances for charities, festivals, casinos and corporate groups.

Dan Davidson is a talent to be reckoned with. In a relatively short time Dan has become a comedy club favorite across the country. Since his humor wasn’t welcome at Purdue University, Dan decided to make his observational sarcasm work in his favor. This shy boy mustered up the nerve to hit an open mic night at the local comedy club and his talent didn’t go unnoticed. Shortly thereafter, Dan won the regional Johnny Walker comedy competition and was doing stand-up full time. His midwestern likeabliliy matched with his biting improvisational skills put him on the comedy world map. Don’t mess with Double D. He has also acted in several national commercials. His compact disc has been played on satellite radio. He has also written humorous articles in nationally magazines. Check him out!
