Bio

Danny Palmer hails from Cleveland, Ohio, a town his parents quickly abandoned for warmer climes in Tampa, Florida. Growing up in central Florida, Danny learned the ins and outs of wearing jean shorts to school and listening to 2 Live Crew at ear splitting volumes.

Eventually he ended up in Atlanta where he tried his hand out at stand up for the first time in a sold out room at The Punchline. His jokes about the proper way to pet other people’s cats and what to do if you only had six months left to live went over well with the crowd. After being hired as a writer for the esteemed humorous greeting card site Someecards.com he mustered the courage to move to New York City.

Since arriving in New York in 2008 Danny has performed stand up just about every night at clubs around town including Comic Strip Live and Caroline’s on Broadway. In April 2012, he was nominated as best comic at the Los Angeles Comedy Festival. He consistently receives enthusiastic feedback about his ability to spontaneously interact with audiences and is frequently asked to emcee stand up shows at clubs around town. He has hosted Broadway Comedy Club’s Television Headliner Showcase starring Kyle Grooms and Dustin Chafin.

Danny looks like the typical corn fed boy from the Midwest yet his style and material have a distinct and unique edge. Audiences feel at ease with him quickly thanks to his laid back style and approachability. A talent manager from Cringe Humor recently told him that he has a perspective and voice that is under represented and needed on the NYC comedy scene. In 2012 he performed in seven festivals: New Orleans, Los Angeles, Boston, NYC’s Laughing Devil, NYC’s Stand Up 360, Atlanta’s Black Box, and Austin’s Out of Bounds. In 2013 he has performed at the prestigious San Francisco Sketchfest, New Orleans, and NYC’s Laughing Devil. During a quarter final competition at Laughing Devil he came in first place out of 12 comics. Judges included a NY Post writer and the booker for Comic Strip Live.

Today Danny continues to hone his act and performs alongside great comics at Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Broadway Comedy Club, and a host of other stages across New York and the country.
