About Danny

Danny McDermott was raised with his 4
brothers in Albany NY where he
graduated with honors. He then went to
Alfred University and, while getting his
bachelors degree in Ceramic
Engineering, found his true calling in
acting when he played Biff in Death of
a Salesman. He also dabbled in stand
up comedy at campus talent shows.
After graduating, he worked as an
industrial engineer at UPS and quickly
realized he missed performing so
much, that, much to the chagrin of his family, he quit and moved to
NYC to pursue his true career. He quickly established himself as
dramatic actor/comedian and guy who occasionally got random bands
let him jump up and sing. He spent 20 years in NY city acting, writing,
directing, as well as, producing and performing stand up comedy.
Danny co-founded comedysoapbox.com and founded 5 different
comedy rooms in NYC. 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. After success on stage, the world of movies and
television came calling. He has been seen in many TV shows
including Comedy Central, the Queen Latifah Show, and as a guest
host of "The View" on ABC with 20/20's Jon Stossel. His voice can be
heard in hundreds of commercials. McDermott has done voices on
the Cartoon Network in Casper's Scare School and plays the recurring
bully, Manetti, on an Award winning international cartoon series,
Angelo Rules. His podcast, An Hour of Attention Deficit Disorder with
Mc and Mac is on Mondays on GeekNation.com and he wrote,
directed, and acted in the series "Who Killed the Bible Salesman". A
world renowned acting coach Bob McAndrew's says, "Danny
McDermott is a great talent with a wide range of characters. Unusual,
exhilarating with a tremendous presence.He is electrifying. What a
wonderful surprise.I couldn't stop laughing during the preview of his
one man show, How Not To Act. While watching his performance, Alex
Guiness came to mind."
