Toxic People Aren’t Funny, with Danny McDermott; S2 E25
After graduating with a BS in Engineering, Danny moved to NYC in the 90’s and acted in and produced plays, sketch comedy, and stand up comedy. He became one of the biggest producers of stand up comedy in NYC outside the comedy clubs for 8 years. He had 5 different venues, producing 8 shows a week, and giving away 30 spots a week to comedians. Danny had celebrities such as Jim Gaffigan, Ed Helms, Sarah Silverman, Marc Maron, Bill Burr, and many others come in on a regular basis to headline. He also co-founded the Comedy Soapbox with Steve Hofstetter.
Danny was cast in a great deal of theater, appearing in numerous plays and was the lead in six productions off and off off Broadway.
He’s had a few options on scripts, and moved to LA in 2013 and produced a comedy series that we premiered at the Hollywood Improv called “Who Killed the Bible Salesman”, while doing comedy at the clubs and small venues. One of his scripts, a vigilante/horror/comedy, Danny successfully produced a reading with Christopher Titus, Judd Nelson, and Casper Van Dien. There were 18 actors and about 30 audience members.
