About Daniel

Daniel Cassilagio (Dan Cass), is a Chicago based comedian/actor that features, headlines, and hosts all major clubs in Chicago and throughout the United States. His favorite spots are The Laugh Factory, The Paper Machete, Zanies, The Lincoln Lodge, and The Comedy Bar.

He is the artistic director and producer for The Love Below Comedy Show, was the lead writer and voice actor for "Dankass News", and "Uncle Dan's Daycare" on Beams.fm, and is a co-producer of "Lowkey Funny" at The Laugh Factory.

Dan studied twice at the Moscow Art Theater in Russia, and was a feature comedian for the first annual, "Boom! Chicago" comedy festival" in Amsterdam for 2021, then returned as a Host and Headliner for 2022.

Dan's comedy is vulnerable, and thoroughly based in connection to his audiences as he believes them to always be right. Serving strangers and turning them into new friends is the reason Daniel loves to perform.
