Dan Smith is the “The Can’t Stand Up Comedian,” a Sacramento comic born with spina bifida, a condition that occurs when the spine and spinal cord don’t form completely. His is the most severe form of spina bifida, myelomeningocele, because, as Dan jokes, “if you’re going to commit to something, go all the way.”
Dan has always been funny but it wasn’t until he took a stand up comedy class in 2017 that he felt confident enough to get up on stage. In this documentary, Dan shares his experiences in the Sacramento comedy scene, opens up about his sobriety, and chronicles his evolution as a sitting-down stand up comedian.
A film by Aine Henderson.
