.---------- Danny Cho ---------
During the summer of 2000, Danny then took a real shot at standup comedy through a dare from his high school friends. Like any hormonal/prideful teenager, Danny took the dare and performed at the nearest open mic night competition which happened to be a café in South Central LA. To make a long story short, Danny did well enough to win the competition.
Being bit by the comedy bug, Danny started performing stand-up during his stay at UCLA. He performed shows at the Laugh Factory and the Improv, both in Hollywood. However, through the pressures of his conservative parents, Danny joined the corporate world as a business consultant.
Nevertheless, he still performed comedy at shows all over Southern California and occasionally at out of state universities. In 2006, while still working as a business consultant, Danny had his first national tv acting gig on Mad TV. Danny played Pongo, a fat/mute Thai movie critic alongside
Bobby Lee. Danny played that character for several episodes on Mad TV.
In 2007, Danny hated his career as a business consultant so much that he quit. He hated the job so much he would go to the local bar and drink so much hoping to get a DUI so he can miss work. He decided that he needed to be a full time comedian and actor. Danny recently was in a Bud Light Commercial, which aired during the SuperBowl. He played an Asian foreign exchange student that tries to hit on American girls. Initially, Danny was afraid that this character would set back the progress that Asians Americans were making in the media, but the hunger and bills outweighed that worry and he took the gig.
In the last few years, Danny has been in various commercials and tv shows, and movies. He had a reoccurring role on Parks and Recreation, as China Joe. In addition, Danny has been traveling all over the world doing stand up comedy. Recently, Danny wrote a screenplay titled Ktown Cowboys, that was accepted to the South by Southwest film festival in 2015 and was released in the spring of 2016. Danny was part of the King of Ktown comedy special which was released on Amazon early 2017.
Currently, Danny is fostering the burgeoning stand up comedy scene in Korea.
