An actor, writer, director, and producer, Dan Butler is probably best known as “Bulldog” from the tv series, “Frasier.” His one-man show “The Only Thing Worse You Could Have Told Me…” garnered critical acclaim across the country, including Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk nominations. In 2006, Dan produced, co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in the faux documentary “Karl Rove, I Love You,” which the Huffington Post called “hilarious and unsettling – a political Blair Witch Project.” Acting credits include major roles on- and off-Broadway, at repertory companies across the United States, as well as numerous television shows including “House,” “Monk,” “From the Earth to the Moon,” and “Prayers for Bobby.” Film credits include: “Crazy, Stupid Love,” “Silence of the Lambs,” “Enemy of the State,” “Fixing Frank,” and “Chronic Town." Dan has also been active with suicide prevention, and in 1995 was the National Coming Out Day spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign. He lives in Vermont with his partner of 18 years (and husband), Richard Waterhouse.
