Don has a unique brand of comedy unlike most other comics making him the Comedy Store's perfect closing act every night. Don was the co-creater/star of the cult classic film, "Windy City Heat", which was developed in the Comedy Store's Belly Room. The show is now called The Ding-Dong Show and it continues every Monday night as it has since 1992 making it the longest running show in the clubs history. Don can also be seen nightly as the audience warm-up for ABC's, "Jimmy Kimmel Live". Don's eyes are blue and his relationship status is complicated.
About NKLA/Best Friends:
A coalition of animal welfare organizations, city shelters and passionate individuals. Led by Best Friends Animal Society, they are dedicated to ending the killing of healthy and treatable pets in L.A. city shelters. They provide spay/neuter services where they are needed most so fewer animals go into shelters, and increase adoptions through the combined efforts of the NKLA coalition so more animals come out of the shelters and go into new homes.
Best Friends is providing grants to coalition partners for every pet they adopt to a new home over the number they adopted last year, as well as funding spay/neuter projects for pet owners who can't afford to have their pets fixed.
In 2012, the coalition's first year of existence, L.A. shelter deaths decreased 12 months in a row, culminating in 4,200 fewer animals killed than in the year prior. Also in 2012, the NKLA Coalition facilitated 23,421 adoptions and 4,458 spay/neuter surgeries were performed.
