Dan Dunn

He likes to say he consumes alcohol for a living. But Dan Dunn is a drinks writer… and a very successful one at that. Dan brings to his work a self-effacing, comedic flair that he has parlayed into an extensive writing, broadcasting, and media career. Dan is well known for his four popular books, including his bawdy, barroom confessional that was turned into a sitcom starring Donald Sutherland called: Living Loaded: Tales of Sex, Salvation, and the Pursuit of the Never-Ending Happy Hour. Dan was the host of his own SiriusXM show called Dan Dunn’s Happy Hour and the celebrity drinking podcasts Drinky Fun Time and What We’re Drinking by Dan Dunn. Dan was also a staff writer for the Emmy-nominated Talk Soup, and a freelance writer for SNL’s Weekend Update. As a drinks writer, Dan’s work has appeared in GQ, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Esquire, USA Today, Maxim, Robb Report, Newsday, Los Angeles Magazine, and the LA Times.
