Fresh off the success of The Hills After Show, Dan helped create The After Show, a comedy based entertainment talk show that he produced, wrote and co-hosted. The show, which provided smart and colourful commentary on daily pop culture news, helped build upon Dan’s now-signature dry wit, self deprecating charm, and notable sense of style.
Aside from his work with MTV, Dan was also one of a select number of journalists included in the national coverage of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, co-hosting Olympic Morning for CTV. Other notable television appearances include a guest spot on Canada’s Next Top Model where Levy acted as both a Media Coach and a celebrity guest panelist. Dan’s satirical blog, DOOP, created for MTV online, was a smash hit, garnering tens of thousands of subscribers.
Dan also wrote and starred in his own half hour holiday comedy special, “Dan Levy’s Holi-Do’s & Don’ts”. The show was declared a “critics’ pick” by The Globe and Mail (Canada’s national newspaper). Since having moved to Los Angeles, Dan is not only serving as the online correspondant for Fox Network’s “The X Factor”, he’s also been focusing his energy on acting. His most recent projects include the feature film “Admission”, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd and the Lifetime original film “Cyberstalker”, where he starred opposite Mischa Barton.
In 2013, Levy formed Not A Real Company Productions (with his father, Eugene Levy, and principals Andrew Barnsley and Fred Levy) to produce the half-hour, single-camera comedy Schitt’s Creek for CBC. Levy is the co-creator, co-executive producer and writer of Schitt’s Creek and stars alongside Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara and Chris Elliott.
In addition to his various television appearances and online ventures, Dan has worked closely with Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Organization, Mount Sinai and Sick Kids Hospitals and the FITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship) where he continues to helped raise money and awareness.
On camera and off, Dan’s unique sense of style and signature dark-rimmed glasses have turned him into an unexpected style icon. Levy was declared a “fashion renegade” by the Toronto Star, in addition to topping “best dressed” lists and appearing in notable fashion publications like Flare, Fashion and Hello! magazine. Levy’s eye for fashion has since landed him jobs curating Fashion Magazine’s music blog, acting as the resident style expert at eTalk, Canada’s leading entertainment show, and representing The Hudson’s Bay Company as a brand ambassador. He has also contributing columns to Flare Magazine.
