Ari, pronounced like Ferrari without the “Ferr”, presents a unique combination of talents. His topical, up-to-the-moment material is delivered in stand-up routines, original songs, parodies, poetry, pointed one-liners, and Spoonerisms all underscored by his fine baritone voice and accomplished guitar playing.
Ari's rare gift for comedic lyrical improvisation makes him refreshingly different and a favorite with audiences everywhere. With a special knack for making the interview process highly involving and entertaining, he gently gleans information such as names, places, vocations, hobbies, and relationships—tactfully, of course!
With the wizardry of a human word processor, he improvises a humorous song from the dialogue just shared. People are, without exception, spellbound by this master craftsman's remarkable memory for detail and the lightening speed with which he magically creates a tailor-made tune that is not only funny and to the point, but also rhymes perfectly!
In light of this singular talent, it's not surprising that a secondary career has emerged for Ari, placing him in demand as a creator of special material—not only for other well known comedians and singers, but also as a writer for the corporate world of roasts, sales meetings, product introductions, and commercials—ranging in format from songs and monologues to complete scripts.
Mr. Dane is also the published author of two stories in Tales from the Casting Couch (Viner/Frankel, Dove Books; two action/comedies; a sci-fi screenplay; a sci-fi novel; two comedic memoirs; an anthology of poetry; and three collections of original songs available on CD BABY called “Head Shots” & “Sing-a-Very Long Song” and the just released, “Venice Sci-Fi.”
