Cool Dad Job: DJ
Latest Cool Dad Achievement: Becoming a go-to Halloween costume.
For years, Comstock, 27, managed to perform as DJ Marshmello while keeping his identity a secret. He would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids. But he was good-natured about his outing, and rather than abandoning what had initially been a side project, Comstock redoubled his effort to bring dance-able, bouncy EDM to the masses. He broke through to kids, already a significant part of his audience, in 2019 by throwing a concert inside Fortnite, the video game rapidly consuming the world. Now, he’s an accessible icon for many young gamers. Though not actually a father, he’s awarded an honorary position on this list for being the rare musician setting a good example by making joyful music for children. He can babysit whenever he wants.
