Dan Kulp Comedy Show

By Hawkeye Area Down Syndrome Associtation (other events)

Sunday, October 2 2022 4:00 PM CDT

Dan Kulp is a Comedian, Actor, Author, and Pastor. Three of his four children are adopted and have special needs (Down syndrome and Autism, Alfi’s syndrome, spina bifida). He also has four siblings with Down syndrome (three were adopted).

*After the birth of his brother in 1971, Dan’s parents adopted three more children with Down syndrome becoming a family with nine kids! This gave him a unique perspective on the value of life. PBS and Newsweek Magazine did a feature on them which aired internationally, and The National Enquirer did a two-page spread about the Kulps! Now, Dan and his wife have carried on the legacy.

*You will laugh as Dan describes his parenting foibles. You will be moved to tears as he tells how his wife’s experiences with the infamous “dying rooms” led to adoption. You will be inspired by their son Simon, who was abandoned in the woods on the day he was born and became whom the Kulps have been told is the first with Down syndrome adopted out of China to the U.S.
