NEW YORK, May 3, 2010 – Coming on stronger than a menacing horde of lawn gnomes, Dan Cummins is indeed “Crazy With A Capital F” and the World Television Premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL, Saturday, May 29 at 11:00 P.M ET/PT, will prove it.
An encore presentation of “Dan Cummins: Crazy with a Capital F” airs on Thursday, June 3 at midnight.
Armed with his unique brand of cerebral comedic stylings, Cummins takes his audience through a menagerie of musings that emanate from a dark place that is as deep as it is wide. Live from his current hometown of Spokane, Washington, the quirky Cummins performs his own cynical brand of observational humor for a sold-out crowd, exploring such topics as the joys of drunk-gifting yourself, the absurdity of iPod vending machines and the perils of the “Tooth Gremlin.” His set is an intricately woven tapestry that ties the abstract with the absurd and delivers it with a twisted edge displayed by few comics today.
Cummins has appeared on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Last Comic Standing: Season 6,” COMEDY CENTRAL’s “Live at Gotham” and his first half-hour special, “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents Dan Cummins.” Cummins is no stranger to the world’s most prestigious comedy festivals, having appeared at the “Just for Laughs” Montreal Comedy Festival, HBO’s “Las Vegas Comedy Festival” and the “South Beach Comedy Festival.” On June 23, 2009, he also released his first CD, “Revenge Is Near” on Warner Bros./Jack Records.
