It’s not just comedy it’s “ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Comedy)”.
           
He is the world’s first CCSP (Corporate Comedy Services Provider)!  Corporate comedy solutions geared towards the audience’s professional background.

Don McMillan graduated from Stanford University with a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. (He has a BSEE from Lehigh University) He went to work for AT&T Bell Laboratories where he worked as part of the team that designed the world’s first 32-bit Microprocessor. He then moved to the Silicon Valley where he worked at VLSI Technology as a computer chip designer. During his 6 years at VLSI he designed more than 20 Standard and ASIC Designs many of which are still out there today.

After winning the 16th Annual San Francisco International Stand-Up Comedy Competition in 1991, Don turned in his chips for a microphone. He went on to be $100,000 Grand Champion on “Star Search” in 1993. He’s had numerous television appearances including “The Tonight Show” on NBC, CNN’s “The Larry King Show”, MTV’s “Half Hour Comedy Hour”, and A&E’s “Evening at the Improv”. Nowadays, you can catch Don headlining top comedy clubs across the country including the “Improv”, the “Comedy and Magic Club”, and the “Ice House”.

He plays the Bud delivery guy who mans the “freshness hotline” and protects the world against “skunky” beer. He can also be seen in commercials for 7–11, Franco-American Ravioli, Little Caesar’s Pizza, ServiStar Hardware, and United Airlines.
