Meet Standup Comedian Danny Lobell and His Ice Cream Encounters at Camp Danny


Comedian, Podcaster, and Storyteller Danny Lobell has nothing to do all day because he works as a standup comic at night. So he came up with something called "Camp Danny" in which he schedules activities for himself. His passion for frozen yogurt and ice cream accounts for most of the activities.

Danny is a half-Scottish, observant Jewish comedian living in Los Angeles. He runs the highly popular podcast Modern Day Philosophers, which features interviews with comedians like Carl Reiner, Shelley Berman, Mayim Bialik, and Marc Maron, and he's appeared on "This American Life." 

In his one-man show called, Broke As A Joke, he discusses all the crazy things he has done for money, from running a hairless cat breeding business to selling Jackie Mason's cassette tapes on Broadway and starting a hipster egg company. He also brings up his yeshiva education and how he had a sheltered life as an Orthodox kid on Long Island. 

If you're in Los Angeles, you can catch his show tonight at the Sacred Fools Theater and if you're in Edinburgh in August you can see him at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Enjoy!
