Don McMillan graduated from Stanford University with a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering in 1982. He went to work for AT&T Bell Laboratories where he worked as part of the team that designed the world's first 32-bit Microprocessor. He then moved to the Silicon Valley (San Jose, California) where he worked at VLSI Technology as a computer chip designer. During his 6 years at VLSI he designed more than 50 integrated circuit chip designs many of which are still out there in systems today. However, after winning the 16th Annual San Francisco International Stand-Up Comedy Competition in 1991, Don turned in his chips for a microphone. He went on to be $100,000 Grand Champion on "Star Search" in 1993. He's had numerous television appearances including "The Tonight Show" on NBC, CNN's "The Larry King Show", MTV's "Half Hour Comedy Hour", and A&E's "Evening at the Improv". Nowadays, you can catch Don headlining comedy clubs from the "Improvisation" to "Catch-A-Rising Star" across the country.
Currently, Don is starring in the award winning feature length film "Don: Plain & Tall" an independent feature about an engineer who tosses it all away to become a stand-up comic (sound familiar?). "Don: Plain & Tall" received the award for "Best Feature & Comedy" at the Breckenridge Festival of Film and the Back East Film Festival. Don has also appeared in: "Air Bud - World Pup", "Life Without Dick", "Macon County Jail", "Party Crashers", "Fanatics", and "TeenBoy". You most likely have seen Don as the star of fifteen national commercials for Budweiser Beer. He plays the Bud delivery guy who mans the "freshness hotline" and protects the world against "skunky" beer. He can also be seen in commercials for 7-11, Franco-American Ravioli, Little Caesar's Pizza, ServiStar Hardware, and United Airlines. Don has guest starred on the TV series "Star Trek: Voyager", "Babylon 5", "City Guys", and "Step by Step".
He has also been profiled in both "Entertainment Weekly" and "TV Guide". Don has not lost contact with his high-tech roots. He has performed over 200 shows for major corporations around the United States including IBM, Dell, Apple, Cisco Systems, and HP. Don's corporate show utilizes his unique background to take a lighthearted look at computers, technology, and the high-tech lifestyle. He is the only stand-up comedian working who is using PowerPoint and references "Avagadro's Number", "DRAM", and he Beta tests all his jokes.
