Welcome to Dan Looker's first time ever web page!

Please excuse our appearance as we are currently undergoing construction.

Dan is a professional acrobat and funny dude who has successfully avoided real work since 1981. After a two year tour he ran away FROM the Ringling Brothers Circus and can say from personal experience that the little car all those clowns come piling out of is crowded! He has since performed his own brand of physical comedy and ill-advised acrobatics all over the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. Since 1993 he has been performing a solid tour of renaissance festivals as "Daniel Duke of Danger". Dan is a graduate of the Ringling Bros. Clown College, has studied at the world-renown Ecole Nationale de Cirque in Montreal, and has learned to clean fish from his neighbor Jack down in Key West.
