Let me emcee your next event! My experience with providing both substantive presentations and entertaining stand up makes me a great fit to emcee weddings, fundraisers and other events. I can read a crowd, make people comfortable and keep your event running on track and on time! 

True story: I once did a solo presentation on sexual assault for a group of over 350 fraternity men. I found this fun and got a standing ovation! This is my way of saying: I don't scare easily, I can handle a tough crowd and I know how to tailor my style for different audiences.

I've emceed comedy shows, nonprofit events and weddings. Please contact me if you're looking for an engaging and professional emcee! Price is on a sliding scale (including for weddings -- I promise I cost WAY less than a DJ!). 



  • Bring energy and enthusiasm.

  • Warm up your crowd.

  • Learn names, pronounce them correctly and give everyone a warm introduction and thank you.

  • Prepare remarks and/or read welcome remarks (if needed).

  • Help with day-of logistics (I LOVE event planning and can do day-of coordinating as well -- please reach out!). 

  • Cue music, PowerPoints, videos, etc.

  • Jump in and help out with whatever you need on the day of.

  • Emcee your event with poise, professionalism, humor and warmth! 

Rest assured that I will not hog the spotlight! This is your event. My comedy experience will help me distract people from an IT glitch or transition out of an awkward best man speech, but I won't do any bits (unless you ask, of course).

"I was so grateful to Dana for helping coordinate my wedding. She really knows her way around a clipboard and a microphone! I could actually sit back and enjoy my reception knowing that the details were in her capable hands.” - Rachel Teagle, Mystic Aquarium Wedding
