One of Atlanta's most consistent performers for the last decade, comedian Dan Mengini has jokes, on jokes, on jokes. Nicknamed "The Machine" for his rapid-fire delivery, Mengini's shows move at a frenetic, but entertaining pace. While most of the UGA alumni's material is a family-friendly mix of one-liners and funny stories about his Italian father, Mengini is a big draw on college tours, and spends the majority of weekends on the road headlining clubs nationwide. He will also be releasing an album called Paper or Spastic? on September 15.

Comedian since: 1999

ATLien since: 1976

A lil' joke: "For me, going to church is a lot like going to yoga class. I never really wanna go, but when I get there I say 'Wow ... she's hot!' "

Recent credits: One Tree Hill, Drop Dead Diva, FARK TV

Upcoming performances:
Sept 9th
Lehigh University
