Dan is good at several things. He writes and performs comedy songs, either on his own or with other people. He is one half of the world’s best neo-post-post-music hall anti-folk band, Pig With The Face Of A Boy. He has a YouTube hit, A Complete History of the Soviet Union as told by a humble worker, arranged to the melody of Tetris. He sometimes pretends to be other people in shows written by other people, which he calls ‘acting’. He once ran a sketch group, Unsupervised Detention, with three other very funny people. He plays accordion, piano and violin. He writes furiously for other projects.
However, he is not very good at growing vegetables. That doesn’t stop him trying.
