Dante Plush

Bio

A teacher at heart and a stand-up comedian by craft, Dante Plush is dedicated to combating the countless barriers that at-risk students face to getting a quality education and making people laugh along the way. His mission and motivations are evident in his refreshing comedic take on once being a middle school teacher, working for one of the world’s quickest growing non-profits, and navigating life as a black millennial in New York City. He has performed all over the country but you can frequently catch him making audiences laugh in the comedy clubs of the five boroughs (well…not Staten Island…). He has a Master’s degree in Educational Technology from Pace University and is a member of the junior board for a Bronx based youth center, but still can’t figure out how to iron his goddamn clothes correctly.
