Daniel Shar grew up in North Carolina, earned a now-dusty journalism degree from the University of Missouri, devoted himself to comedy in Chicago, and relocated to Los Angeles to write for TV and film. Shar recently released SCRAPS, his feature debut as a writer/director, on Amazon Prime Video. Prior to that, he co-created and co-starred in an independent pilot presentation for the narrative/sketch comedy hybrid Jonathanville TV, as well as the web series projects We Have To Move (alongside Marlena Rodriguez and featuring John Reynolds) and Weird Copcept Album (alongside Mike Malarkey and featuring Chris Redd). Shar has sold jokes to The Onion and Funny Or Die, and his solo shows have appeared at Comedy Central Stage, SF Sketchfest, St. Lou Fringe, and more. His other past points of pride include writing and performing topical pieces at The Paper Machete, writing and directing the one-act play Improvised Whose Line Is It Anyway?, directing Dave Maher Coma Show (This American Life), and selling sex toys while still a virgin.
