"Storyteller, funny guy, darn interesting person--Dan Perlman of New York City was all three. Can’t think of a single joke, but provoked a lot of laughter at his vignettes and observations. Polished, relaxed and sly, he’s a very accomplished guy for age 23, nabbing a plum spot as comedy contributor for Neil deGrasse Tyson's popular podcast, StarTalk Radio. He’s one to watch." - Theater Jones

"If there were eight days in a week, it's guaranteed Dan Perlman would be on stage performing comedy... Dan can hang with the best of them and will only get funnier. Keep an eye out." - America's Comedy

"A New York staple who has truly grown as a comedian." - NY Theatre Guide

"So funny... Everyone's going to realize he's amazing. A hands-down hilarious guy." - The Interrobang's Comics Who Will Be The Next Big Thing in 2017.

"A little dramatic, a lot funny, and very well written, Flatbush Misdemeanors gives a glimpse into the real Brooklyn that shows like Girls can only dream of capturing... The show is more than a comics-in-the-city dramedy." - The Laugh Button
