DNA’s unique brand of comedy skewers America with a psychedelic double twist. The creator of several comedy festivals and a web series, DNA has opened up for Moshe Kasher, Janeane Garofalo, Myq Kaplan and most of the Bay Area. An extremely strong dose of LSD led DNA to win the Showtime Comedy Competition at Chico State in 1990. For the next three decades DNA pursued community activism before returning to comedy in 2007. Since then DNA has fostered a community of comedians in Santa Cruz, California. A BOD member of Comedy Day in Golden Gate Park, DNA has not left his activism behind and uses comedy to bridge the gap between generations, genders, religions and species. A true intergalactic performer.
