Dante Nero:

Dante Nero was born in Brooklyn NY. He attended Catholic school and was an alter boy.As a clever young boy he began a lucrative business of loosening soup thermoses for kids with over protective thermos tightening moms. At age 11 he began his martial arts journey as well as training in modern dance, tap and jazz. At 13 too young to work legally, Dante taught himself how to ride a unicycle and handed out flyers for $50 a day. He ran an icy stand, worked in a library as well as ran slips for the local bookie.

He learned how to fence at Tompkins recreation center in Bed Stuy, which earned him a scholarship for fencing to SUNY New Paltz. Tired of Ramen noodles he got a job with emotionally disturbed kids and on the side did strip shows for sororities on campus. When he got home to Brooklyn he bounced at some of the biggest clubs in the city with his brawler friends and fought them in closed factories at night for money. Always looking for a new hustle, he started a male strippers troop with 13 members. He then took a job with the phone company and became a cable splicer while still dabbling in exotic dancing and bouncing. He later became involved in his labor union. He quickly moved up the ranks to become a delegate with over 200 employees.

In 2001 he tried his hand at stand up comedy and loved it and has done it ever since. He always enjoyed comedy especially when he hired some well known comics such as Tracey Morgan and Mike Epps to open his self produced strip shows. His extensive life experience, philosophical point of view and an even sense of cynicism make his wit truthful and relevant.
