On Conan, Dan St. Germain has some sober realizations

I saw Dan St. Germain in Montreal last week at the Just For Laughs comedy festival, and can report that neither one of us was smoking or drinking. Not that we’re goody two-shoes, either one of us. On Conan last night, St. Germain talked about the realizations he has had in the past while drinking or smoking weed. And they are sobering. He also joked about making progress in his life, such as hiring a personal trainer, and getting a woman’s phone number only to have it flip back around on him unexpectedly. That’s not quite as surprising as...

MTV’s “World of Jenks” follows comedian Dan St. Germain for a week. Watch it now!

On MTV's World of Jenks, filmmaker Andrew Jenks picks a different subject to follow around and document to show what life is like for us now. Last night's episode found Jenks following rising stand-up comedian Dan St. Germain through New York City's open mic and indie comedy scene as he prepared for a one-night-only headlining set at Comix in September. Readers of The Comic's Comic already know about Dan St. Germain, as I profiled St. Germain in a "Meet Me In New York" back in February. But this is illuminating on another level, as we get a bit more of a glimpse of the good, bad and ugly in an aspiring comedian's work-week. You can watch the full episode online. Do it!   Want to see more? Here are some "Director's Cut" clips that didn't make it to the MTV on TV. First, Dan St. Germain tells Jenks he'd be OK with a normal life. Whatever that means.   And this is a scene in which St. Germain claims his last check from his "day job" as a museum security guard. "Time to do this for real!"...

Meet Me In New York: Dan St. Germain

What do they say about New York City: There are eight million stories, and sometimes it seems as though eight million of the people telling them think they're comedians? No, that's not it. It is a fact, though, that America's biggest city is also its biggest comedy mecca. Hollywood may be Hollywood, but New York City is where comedians are born funny, become funny or arrive to thrust their funny upon us. I think we should meet some of these people. This is a new recurring feature, a mini-profile of newcomers, up-and-comers and overcomers of New York's vibrant comedy scene. It's called Meet Me In New York. You know how they say sometimes you need to leave the city you live in to find success? Well, most comedians who move to New York City do that, but I bring it up because the first time I really saw the funny potential of one Dan St. Germain, we were both in Boston and not one of the many NYC shows at which I could have seen him. St. Germain might not have won 2009's Boston Comedy Festival contest, but under all of that hair there's some funny stuff coming out of his mouth. He also went to college in Evansville, Indiana, which is about as close as I can come to finding a funny Indiana transplant not named Jim Gaffigan...

Dan St. Germain on Conan

A new shirt, jacket and haircut for Dan St. Germain, and still, he “looks like the guy who sold Elvis his pills.” The comedian performed Wednesday night on Conan, and also joked about his ability to get out of traffic tickets, despite his horrible driving skills. “I voted for Hillary even though my goatee is campaigning for Kid Rock.” In other words, he considers himself a “dumb liberal,” so please don’t ask him too many questions. Roll the...
