Why Organizations Hire Don
Named the #1 Corporate Comedian by the CBS Business Network
Former engineer turned comedian, Don gets laughs everywhere he goes. Don’s corporate show utilizes his unique background to take a lighthearted look at business-life, technology, and everyday life – suitable for any audience. Customizing every appearance, Don works closely with each client to prepare a unique comedy show.
Performing over 500 shows for major corporations, including Microsoft, Apple, IBM, Google, ExxonMobil, and Genentech, organizations, nonprofits and event planners trust Don to deliver the ultimate comedy relief at what are often dry workshops, conferences or events.
In his previous life
Don graduated Lehigh University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Stanford University with a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. He worked for AT&T Bell Laboratories (as part of the team that designed the world’s first 32-bit Microprocessor) and then as a computer chip designer at VLSI Technology, where he designed more than 20 Standard and ASIC Designs (many of which are still out there today).
Things take a turn
After winning the 16th Annual San Francisco International Stand-Up Comedy Competition in 1991, Don turned in his chips for a microphone. He went on to be $100,000 Grand Champion on Star Search in 1993.
