Writer. Actor. Comedian.

Hi, I’m Daniel Chai. I live and perform in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada. You can catch me onstage with The Fictionals and Vancouver TheatreSports League, onscreen in TV shows like DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and read my articles on Daily Hive Vancouver. Nice to meet you!

I am ready to help you with your next project or event. In need of a writer? Master of Ceremonies? Contact me and let's get started.

When I’m not onstage or on the computer, I enjoy listening to podcasts, reading graphic novels, and exploring the Pacific Northwest. You can follow my adventures on my blog or social media.

Let’s have fun!

Comedy and Acting

I am co-founder of The Fictionals Comedy Co., and the creator of Vancouver Improv Fight Club and Improv Against Humanity. I’m also a performer with Vancouver TheatreSports League, an instructor at VTSL’s Improv Comedy Institute, and an improv teacher at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

I am also a working actor, appearing in film, TV, commercials, and corporate videos.

I have emceed at festivals and moderated panels at conventions, and now I want to help you with your exciting event. Need a host or live entertainment? Drop me a line and let's get planning!

“I feel so lucky to have had Daniel as a MC for EuroFest 2016. He brought an incredible amount of energy and fun to the stage, which was particularly needed on the first day of the festival as it was pouring rain. He basically saved the day with his kindness, charisma and above all his huge contagious smile. It was my first time meeting him and I truly hope we'll have more opportunity to work together on future events.”

- Christelle Win-Lime, Entertainment Manager, European Festival

“I was particularly impressed with the way Daniel worked at integrating some aspects of our festival into the improv training session. Daniel created a very safe environment for everyone to participate, including those of us who were soft spoken or challenged by the speed. Daniel’s skill and expertise gave all of us, with our wide range of ages and stage experience, a session to be remembered, and one that I can highly recommend for any and all groups!”

- Christa Giles, President, Madskillz Vancouver Society


I am the Events writer and photographer for Daily Hive Vancouver, covering everything from the Canadian federal election to a furry convention.

I was also part of the Olympic Communications team for Bell for the 2010 Winter Games, kickstarted social media for CBC Kids' Scout & The Gumboot Kids, and worked with Pacific Northwest Pictures in marketing films such as Le Week-End, Miss Julie, and After The Ball.

I enjoy working with businesses large and small, and want to help you tell your story. Contact me and let’s get writing.
