LOL! He used that all the time when he was playing "The Liar" on Saturday Night Live.

After that, lying was easy for me.
I lied about my age and joined the army. I was thirteen at the time. Yeah, I went to Vietnam and I was injured catching a motar shell in my teeth. And they made me a three-star general. And then I got a job in journalism, writing for the National Enquire- er, Geographic; yeah, I was making twenty thousand a y- Month. In fact, I won the Pulitzer Prize that year. Yeah, that's the ticket.
And then my cousin died, Joe Louis, and I took it hard. Maybe too hard - I tried to kill myself. Yeah, I did kill myself. Sure, I was medically dead for a week and a half. It was a woman that brought me out of it - Indira Gandhi. Yeah, right, and she told me about Pathological Liars Anonymous. Oh, you'd be surprised how many famous people belong. In fact, at one of the meetings I met my wife, Morgan Fairchild. Yes, I'm a changed man now, and all because of Pathological Liars Anonymous. Why, I - I even have my picture on the cover of Newsweek magazine. Yeah, every day. Yeah, that's the ticket.

I still find his brand of humor too gross and angry--but if he ever checks out the FORT, he will see that I am definitely in the vast minority on that count. Seeing as there obviously IS an audience for that type of humor, I guess one can't blame the guy for capitalizing on it.

One of the things I find unlikable about him is his ordinary materials and lack of expressions. He can make fun of anything, but his set does not make me go "hmm, that's interesting". And he does not seem to be funny outside the stage, since he does not show emotions a lot, I can see why producers want John Heffron into the house who I thought should be replaced by Dan.
He was on CBS news this morning talking about the re-opening of the Improv club in NYC.
Dan was just on Tough Crowd and his lips were not as glossy as normal. He actually looked good. He was also pretty funny when he could get a word in over Colin, Patrice O'Neal and Judy Gold.
