Dan Nainan booked to perform for Donald Trump’s “All-American Inaugural Ball”

With all of the talk about President-elect Donald J. Trump having so many problems booking entertainment for his Inaugural Balls, who’d have the balls in comedy to take him up on an invite?

Dan Nainan.

Of course.

Nainan, the Intel engineer who continues to lie about his age when he’s not lying about his comedy credits or punching hecklers, will perform at “The All-American Inaugural Ball” on Thursday night.

His bio for the ball includes all of the Nainan mythos, plus suggests “Dan continues to tour with Russell” Peters. Which should be fun news for Peters.

Nainan, who was 52 when he punched a heckler at the D.C. Improv in 2013, somehow had gotten decades younger by 2016, getting himself quoted in an AP story about young undecided voters — telling them he was 35. At the end of 2016, Forbes wrote a puff piece on him, again buying his tale of being a young lucky 30-something. The Daily Beast outed Nainan’s lies once more. Which prompted this Twitter reply from Peters:

Nainan also has used a misleading photo suggesting a friend of mine was his girlfriend for a Valentine’s Day article in one of the free NYC newspapers.

And you can hear him dance around his lies and exaggerations from this 2015 podcast with some of his critics.

The $300 tickets are sold out for the All American Inaugural Ball at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, which also is scheduled to include an appearance by astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Lt. Col. Oliver North from the Iran-Contra scandal, singer Beau Davidson, cover bands The Reagan Years and The MIXX, and FOX News contributor Lisa Booth as the emcee.


For what it’s worth…

Four years ago, Nainan performed after midnight at this same inaugural ball in 2013:

  1. I know why Dan lies about his age. Its because he is trying to score with younger girls. But his sociopathic personality is extremely perverted. I met Dan at a comedy club around 2003. After a show, he started chatting about a girl that he was dating. What struck me about the conversation was that he was bragging (whispering to me) that his girl had a body like she was under 18. WTF? It creeped me out big time. I remember feeling very uncomfortable about him revealing his fetish for underage girls. At that time he was 40-42?

    A few weeks later, I did run into him at another club. This time his girlfriend was there, a slim pretty Italian brunette, a little naive and very young. I remember hearing a year later from other comics, that they broke up, -the reason – he was emotional, verbally and physically abusive. I heard that he is insanely jealous and threatening in his relationships. In fact, I remember hearing through the grapevine at that time his previous girlfriend filed a domestic violence report around the DC area.

    There is a record of him punching out a writer in the DC area and he writes aggressive vengeful emails to other comics.

    After reading up the latest articles about Dan trying to pass off as a millennial, I am quite certain, the only reason for this charade is to try to pick up young girls. Bloggers and journalists, next time you interview him, ask him about the history of his past and current relationships. Ladies, step forth, we’d love to hear from you.
