Among comedian Dan Soder’s offstage ventures are his Sirius XM radio show, The Bonfire, which he co-hosts with fellow comic Big Jay Oakerson, and his recurring role on Showtime’s Billions. The former plays off his pre-standup days in radio. “I don’t miss radio,” he insists, “But I like doing a show with Jay. It’s not really broadcasting, it’s us just fucking around. Just two comics hanging out trying to be funny.” The Showtime gig came about shortly after Soder started acting. After doing an independent film in 2014, he appeared in sketches on Inside Amy Schumer. He auditioned for a role on Billions when that show began casting. “I didn’t get the role I was auditioning for,” he says, “but they did tell me if it went to series they would have a role written for me.” That turned out to be the part of Mafee. Most exciting of all, his special, Not Special, debuted on Netflix on July 4. With so many irons in the fire, Soder is still focused on being a comedian, though. “I’m just trying to get better all the time,” he says.
