West Virginia University at Parkersburg’s Distinguished Performance Series presents Dan Kamin’s “Comedy in Motion” on Thursday, March 26 at 7 p.m. in the College Activities Center.

In this evening of satirical fun, Kamin will take you on “a cheap tour of the expensive performing arts.” Using incredible physical and verbal skills, Kamin lampoons everyone from pompous opera singers to sleazy magicians. To preview his talents, visit: www.dankamin.com.

Comedy in Motion

Kamin created Johnny Depp’s comedy moves in “Benny and Joon” and trained Robert Downey Jr. for his Oscar-nominated performance in “Chaplin.” Dan also played Old Chief Wood’nhead in the cult classic “Creepshow 2” and created the weird movement of the Martian girl in Tim Burton’s horror film spoof “Mars Attacks.”
