Leigh Daniel Avidan, commonly known as Dan Avidan in professional life, is a musician, songwriter, comedian, actor, and Internet personality.
The American artist is also known under the stage name Danny Sexbang. He is famous as co-host of the web series Game Grumps of Lets’s Play with Arin Hanson and as part of the video game comedy-music trio Starbomb alongside Wecht and Hanson. In music, most people will easily identify him as half of the musical comedy duo Ninja Sex Party with Brian Wecht.
Here you will find all the information about his biography, age, family, career, girlfriend, and size, without neglecting his wealth.
Avidan was born on March 14, 1979, in Springfield, Union New Jersey, the older of two children of Debra Schwartz and Avigdor Avidan. He is of mixed descent, being half Jewish on his father’s side and half Norwegian on his mother’s side.
As an adolescent, he was enrolled at Jonathan Dayton High School, which he graduated from in 1997. He was not so diligent in his time at high school but instead devoted much time to extracurricular activities at school, where he sang and danced during the programs of the time.
After high school, Dan was accepted to study advertising at Boston University in Boston, Massachusetts. However, he was no longer interested in studying advertising and instead chose to join a student exchange program on the satellite campus of Tufts University in Talloires, France, where he studied botany.
Family: Dad, Mum, Sister
His family is of Israeli origin, as his father, a businessman who ran a company, was born and raised in Isreal. He served in the Yom Kippur War before emigrating to America. His grandfather, Bernard Schwartz, is known for helping to invent the body electrode.
Dan’s mother, Debra, who ran a grocery store, met his father when he emigrated to America. His sister Dana Avidan Cohn is a bank jeweler, managing director of Popsugar and correspondent for InStyle magazine.
His career began when he joined the indie rock band “The Northern Hues”, a group formed in Philadelphia in early 2002. Members of the band included Jeff Rains, Alex Yaker, Justin Earley, and Ian Creech with Dan as lead singer and songwriter. They released their self-titled EP and a live track recorded in early 2005 at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia in mid-2015 before the band disbanded in many unproductive years due to lack of concentration and single-minded planning.
In late 2006, he joined forces with Peter Lennox to form a Brooklyn pop duo called “Skyhill” and performed exactly the same functions as he did in his former band. The band released the album “Run With The Hunted” on May 16, 2007, and toured all over New York in 2008 before separating due to so-called “creative differences”.
However, the duo reunited in October 2015 on October 7th, when Avidan and Lennox released a single called Firefly, suggesting that the former band has matured both lyrically and sonically compared to their previous album.
Before reuniting with Lennox, he began studying storytelling and improvisation at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York in 2008, where he was taught by Margot Leitman. In the same year, in early 2009, he was introduced by mutual friends at the theatre to Brian Wecht, the musical director of another troupe, and worked with him to create characters who would represent the band. They gained recognition by appearing with musical guests in comedy show strip stories.
The duo released several studio albums and singles, which were successfully featured on billboards. In 2016, they began work on their fourth album, Cool Patrol, following the successful release of three previous albums. The album is scheduled for release by June 1018.
In addition to the band’s success, they have performed at various film festivals such as SXSW, Dragon Con, and the LACS.
