Danny Keaton is a comedian from Fort Worth, Texas, who now lives in Los Angeles and tours comedy clubs nationwide.
Adopted at a young age and with a stuttering problem in grade school, Danny began overcoming obstacles early in life, including the racism of being Hispanic in a small redneck Texas town. He joined the Army after high school and pursued a career in radio broadcasting (not bad for a kid who used to stutter). After his father’s death and a failed marriage, Danny’s life took a downward spiral. As a cheap form of therapy and on a dare, he went on stage amateur night at a local comedy club—Danny was hooked!
Starting out in Dallas comedy clubs, New Orleans, and Austin, Danny Keaton continues to bring his own distinctive style to the many stages of comedy across the country. From his military anecdotes to his comedic attacks on religion and conservatism, Danny’s humor jabs directly at the many ironies of society’s structure. His comedy takes on American pop-culture, mainstream media, and reality TV. He talks about online dating and even delivers personal tips on cougar-dating!
Current highlights include opening for Tommy Chong, appearing with Danny Bonaduce, and earning Canada’s Comic Video of the Month from Yuk-Yuk’s International Stand Up Comedy Clubs. Danny is becoming a regular at The Comedy Store in Hollywood and recently has added acting to his career with roles from reality TV to feature films.
