Daniel E. Soder (born June 24, 1983) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and radio personality. He is best known for his frequent appearances on MTV2's Guy Code and his recurring role of Mafee on the Showtime drama series Billions since 2016. He has co-hosted The Bonfire with fellow comedian Big Jay Oakerson on Sirius XM Radio since 2015.
Soder was born in Hartford, Connecticut, but was raised in Aurora, Colorado. He is of Irish descent. While Soder was in high school, his father died following a protracted illness, and his sister died two years later in a car accident. He began performing stand-up comedy while a student at the University of Arizona. He graduated from University of Arizona in 2005 with degrees in journalism and political science. A year after graduating, he moved to New York City to further pursue his career.
He has appeared on Comedy Central's The Half Hour, Conan, Cum Town, Opie and Anthony, The Anthony Cumia Show, MTV2's Guy Code and Guy Court, Fox Sports 1's Garbage Time with Katie Nolan, and the You Know What Dude! podcast with Robert Kelly. After the firing of Anthony Cumia from the Opie & Anthony Show, Soder was a frequent guest and "third mic" on Opie with Jim Norton, formerly on the Faction Talk channel on Sirius Satellite Radio. On July 27, 2015, Soder along with fellow stand-up comedian Big Jay Oakerson began their two-hour live radio talk show, The Bonfire, on SiriusXM's Comedy Central Radio channel airing every Monday through Thursday (previously Mondays and Wednesdays) from 6-8pm EST. As of March 1, 2021, the show has aired on Faction Talk from 5-7pm EST after Comedy Central Radio ceased production on all of its talk shows.
Soder appeared in multiple episodes as a guest star on Inside Amy Schumer beginning in 2014, and had a minor appearance in Schumer's film Trainwreck (2015). On May 21, 2016, Soder released his first hour long special on Comedy Central titled Not Special.
