James Craven


The creator/writer behind the Facebook dad advice page Dadisms and the Father of the Year web series; James Craven is a recovering stand-up comedian. The 38 year old Clinton Twp., MI freelance writer and twitterer has used his family life experiences to entertain the masses throughout the Mid-West. When not writing for his comedic web projects, Craven is actively involved with Cancer organizations and charities, particularly ACS Relay for Life. His philosophy of making people laugh at themselves, him, life or whatever is what has helped him through his son’s recent battle with stage 4 Lymphoma of the bone. Learning that inspiration can come from anywhere, he uses his daily life to make others laugh even in the rough times. It’s easy to see why George Burns words to live by “if they laugh, it’s funny” is so fitting.
