Written by Josh Spanninga | Friday, 26 July 2013 12:00 |

Dan St. Germain knows where a good Internet short can get a comedian and has spent time perfecting that art. As a result, his shorts have appeared on the front page of Funny or Die and his series "Kicking Dan Out" is featured on the My Damn Channel Comedy Network.
