Speaker Topics

Dan Ruskin is one of America's funniest--and offbeat--musicians and comedy writers. Your kids know him as Letterman on the TV series The Electric Company. You may remember him as Agent 6 & 7/8ths on Get Smart reruns. He starred Off-Broadway at the Actor's Studio in Piano Bar, wrote the lyrics for the London production of America, Hurrah! and played the political satirist in Annie Hall. And as if these credentials aren't enough, he also claims to do windows!

Ruskin's brand of humor often appears in the guise of extreme candor. Speaking of his radio comedy news show, The Daily Feed, he claims "It's aired on 200 (poorly managed) stations--you know, the kind found at the top of the dial, playing music you don't allow your children to hear!" He is also one of Washington, D.C.'s best-known political satirists and has been playing at The Mayflower Hotel for over a decade. His nightclub act, which he calls "Very Dry Piano With a Twist," always receives great accolades for its originality and wit. His one-man review features piano music, singing, and speaking. And when he speaks, everyone laughs!
