Dame Grant is a Chicago based stand-up comedian who while working as a wedding DJ, found he had a knack for writing best man speeches. This launched his joke writing career. He eventually transitioned that talent to the stage as a Second City trained sketch writer/ actor-improviser and stand-up comedian.
Dame performs all over the Midwest and throughout the country, securing bookings at Zanies Comedy Club, Flappers Comedy Club, Funny Business and the Funny Bone and has opened for the likes of Dan Soder, Josh Gondelman and Marcella Arguello
