Dan Piraro–who draws the award-winning, widely-syndicated panel cartoon “Bizarro,” who’s a vegan and who’s been recognized in recent years for his work as a vocal animal-rights advocate, including presenting animal rights issues in “Bizarro”–discusses what spurred his interest in animal rights, how that interest started being periodically reflected in “Bizarro,” and how that’s also reflected in lectures and comedy shows he delivers across the country, including a multi-media presentation, “Cartoons, Comedy And Compassion,” he was slated to perform shortly in Clearwater, FL.
