Johnny was an accounting major in college who regularly would make fun of his crazy family to his friends.Then one day a light bulb went off right above his head just like you see in cartoons and he decided to drop out of college and start making fun of his family up on stage with a microphone in his hand.Since then he has toured the country (all 50 states) and performed on four different continents.Not bad for a kid from Cleveland.
Most recently you’ve seen him on Chelsea Lately and Jimmy Kimmel Live as well as various sketches on the TV Guide Channel’s pre-Emmy show.
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,” “Chelsea Lately,” “The Late Late Show,” and “Comedy Central Presents: Dan Levy. He has also hosted four VERY short-lived shows on MTV including “Rock Band Battle,” “Your Face or Mine,” “The Reality Show,” and “MTV Spring Break”. You don’t remember them? Either does he.
With this and the success of his 2008 College Humor series, “The I Have To Go In A Minute Show with Super Host Dan Levy,” Dan’s following has grown to sold out shows at clubs and colleges across the country. And he continues to work in the digital space as he’s in development a deal with Comedy Central to produce a second series for their sister website Atom.com.
After selling the TV show “MY LDR” to MTV, which is based on a joke he performed in his stand up routine, which later because a popular web series for SONY’s crackle.com, Dan began not only performing but writing too. Since last year he has developed a sitcom for FOX called “Party People”, a movie for Disney called “Stoked the band” and is currently developing another TV series with SONY television. He is also the executive producer of E!‘s reality series “Pretty Wild”, but that is a very long story that he will have to explain to you in person.
Dan’s next big screen appearance will be in the Sony Screen Gems coming-of-age comedy “Mardi Gras,” in theaters this year. He was previously featured in the Happy Madison film “The House Bunny” (but then was cut out) and co-starred in “My Sexiest Year” with Frankie Muniz and Harvey Keitel.
Dan lives in Los Angeles where he is writing more television show and collecting sneakers and knives. He understands those are two very weird things to obsess about.
Andy Ostroff was born the second of two boys in the town of Natick, Massachusetts just outside of Boston. He grew up as a curious and conscientious young boy once telling his mother not to drink and drive while she was driving her station wagon and holding a Pepsi. At the age of 13 Andy had a kick ass Bar Mitzvah, which prompted his mother to say “you are the most handsome Bar Mitzvah boy ever.” This is the young boy who has blossomed into the man you see today.
Andy haphazardly ventured through the Natick public school system (where NFL quarterback Doug Flutie went!) with much success including winning the inaugural Mr. Natick High School beauty pageant. If you ask nicely, Andy might let you email his mom and she will be happy to tell you all about it. However, Mr. NHS was the first point in Andy’s life where he actually thought, “being on stage performing might be more fun than basketball…even when we win.”
After, high school, Andy’s next stop was The George Washington University in Washington DC. He ended up majoring in American Studies with a minor in Theatre Arts. He was also a manager for the athletic department meaning that someone actually put him in control of a multi-million dollar training facility. That was sweet! Anyway, Andy continued acting and liked it more and more. He did pretty well in class too. This is despite the fact that when reading his senior thesis project, on how sports help Spanish speaking Americans become part of American culture, Andy’s professor said, “You have a very amusing writing style that makes me laugh out loud when reading your work.” That’s quite a compliment, but not so much when what you have written is supposed to be a serious academic endeavor. Hmm. Somehow he managed to graduate with honors. This, my friends is still a mystery.
After college Andy really had two choices. Choice one was to follow his father’s footsteps and go to law school. Choice two was to move to LA and pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Luckily, Andy’s father told him that if he went to Law School he was crazy.
