At age nine, Dan Levy's mother placed him into a comedy class because of his apparent lack of athletic skills. After taking classes at Curtain Call in Stamford CT, he was placed in the new improv and sketch comedy group: The Half-Pint Players who performed around Connecticut and at Caroline's NYC. He attended Emerson College in Boston and maintained a full-time student status while still jump-starting his stand-up career. By the end of his freshman year, Dan performed regularly at 'The Comedy Connection,' 'Nick's Comedy Shop' and the 'Comedy Studio.' 'His comedy career really took off when he was chosen to compete in Funniest College Comedian in America at the 2001 Aspen U.S Comedy Arts Festival. Dan took home the title and signed a contract with the all-True Network in New York City, New York (Where he then wrote the comedic reality show titled 'The Dan Levy Show').
