Offering a wide range of lectures and interactive workshops, Dan and his lethal love Jillian are guaranteed to provide con attendees fun and fulfillment.

Due to a supreme lack of filter, Dan also performs stand-up comedy, and lives to embarrass his wife onstage, in censored and uncensored settings.

2D6

“..a legendary musical group.”
“No band has influenced pop culture the way they have.”
“Irrepressible and irresistible, they were — and remain –the world’s most astonishing band.”

The band? The Beatles, whom 2d6 once listened to. They were pretty good, too! Those descriptions were probably pretty accurate! But 2d6 is pretty good, too. They’re a couple of nerds, who were once a couple of animals, who found a pair of six sided-dice after running away from a lab–listen, the backstory’s a lot to take in; suffice it to say: 2d6 likes to rap about geeky pop culture. Anime, video games, comic books, roleplaying, 2d6 covers it all! And not only do they do it, they do it with more energy, verve, and panache than any other band you’ve ever seen.

Listen, nerds know a lot about words. Rappers must know a lot of words to succeed. QED, nerds are the best rappers. So let 2d6 to rap at you while they pelt you with a ton of candy. Check out 2d6 @ 2d6music.com!
