Dan does his ice bucket challenge on comedy TV show ‘The Last Leg’.
Here is some information about the disease from the official ALS website:
ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralysed.
In the UK ALS is known as Motor Neurone Disease. This information is from the official MND website:
MND and ALS are different descriptions of the same disease. The MND Association, which covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the ALS Association, which operates in the USA, do the same type of work. The only real difference is what we call the disease.
In the UK we use MND – motor neurone disease – and in the USA they use ALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Both refer to a fatal, progressive disease that can rob people of the ability to speak, move and breathe. There is no cure. The reason there is a difference is that there are several forms of MND. ALS is the most common type. MND is an umbrella term for all forms of the disease. In the USA, ALS is used as the umbrella term (they also sometimes refer to it as Lou Gehrig’s disease).
The MND Association in the UK and The ALS Association in America work very closely together on numerous projects, especially around global research into a cause of MND / ALS, and we are delighted to be carrying on #IceBucketChallenge in the UK, following the ALS Association’s great work in America.
The MND Association helps people with or affected by MND in several ways. We work to improve care and support, fund research to find a cure and campaign to raise awareness of the needs of people with MND. We also fundraise to pay for this important work.
Text ICED55 £5 to 70070 to donate to MND(UK). You can donate at this website: http://www.alsa.org/ for the US.
Lots of promotional videos of Dan are doing the rounds for the promotion of ‘What If’. Check them out below:
Below are two video clips of Dan making a television appearance on Seth Meyers on the 5th August. Dan talks about ‘What If’ and his cameo appearance in ‘Trainwreck’.

Watch Dan below in a video for Shortlist magazine in which he talks about Kill Your Darlings and Gold.
Here is a trailer for the 300th Shortlist magazine issue featuring Dan on the cover.
On Thursday November 21st, DanRad will be kicking off an exciting and unique project to celebrate the release of his hugely anticipated new movie Kill Your Darlings, which hits cinemas on 6th of December.
The KYD Cut-Up Exhibition is a collection of projections which will be taken around London over three days, to be seen by thousands of Londoners.
The whole cut-up thing, where text is sliced up and rearranged to create a new, original piece, was made popular in the late 1950s, by William S. Borroughs – one of the central characters in Dan’s new movie. It’s all about ‘killing’ the work of ‘your darlings’ (or inspirational artists and writers) to create your OWN brand new and unique work. It’s all very clever and artsy fartsy.
For this particular exhibition, the cut-up technique will be used to include design, fashion, illustration, photography, art and literature, so if you’re one of those arty sorts with any sort of creative talents you fancy showing off, this one’s definitely for you.
