Dan Levy          

Star of "Schitt's Creek," Comedian and Actor Who Recently Toured with Aziz Ansari

After enrolling in Emerson College in Boston, Dan began performing at open mics and other strange venues -- where people were more focused on their beer than what the wannabe comics were saying.

As a sophomore in college, Dan was chosen to compete at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO, where he won the title of Funniest College Comedian.

Since then, Dan has been seen at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival numerous times and has made TV appearances on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "Comedy Central Presents," "The Late Late Show," and "Chelsea Lately," where he is regular guest on her round table. Dan is currently touring with Aziz Ansari and has a comedy central album being released this fall.

As a host, Dan has worked on four MTV Shows including MTV Spring Break, his own talk show for College Humor: "The I Have to go in a Minute Show," and Red Bull Flugtag 2010.

Dan recently appeared in "Harold and Kumar 3" and the HBO/Mike White series "Enlightened." He is also in the comedy "Mardi Gras," and in the Comedy Central pilot “Let it Ride."

As a writer and producer, Dan has sold the half hour TV show "MY LDR" to MTV, which is based on a joke he performs in his stand up routine, which later became a popular web series for SONY's Crackle.com, he also sold a single camera comedy to FOX Studios called "Party People," a movie for Disney called "Stoked the Band," and is currently developing a sitcom with Sony and NBC.

In late 2009, Dan began working in reality TV when he created and served as executive producer of E!'s reality series "Pretty Wild." Since then, he has developed another series for E!, as well as a pilot for WE.

Dan lives in Los Angeles where he is writing more television shows and collecting sneakers. His wife would like him to stop with the sneakers.



He performs comedy, he writes comedy and he likes sneakers, but will Dan Levy like the BUILD stage? We will soon find out, when he visits to talk about his one-hour comedy special, “Dan Levy: Lion,” premiering on SEESO November 17th.
