Everyone has heard the old saying “Good Cop, Bad Cop? Well meet Funny Cop, Dwayne Gill.
As a comedian/actor known for his engaging personality and stage presence, he can be depended on to serve up laughter wherever he appears. And when it comes to protecting, it’s not your funny bone he’s worried about - it’s the citizens of Michigan, since he’s also a cop!
Feeling his job requirements were a bit too serious for someone considered funny since birth; Dwayne found an outlet for his humor when he first stepped onto a comedy stage in 1993. To say he was well received would only serve to protect the audience from what really happened. They went crazy with laughter. After only two more performances, he joined the ranks of professional comedians with his first paid booking at Gadzooks Comedy Club.
“Right then I knew comedy was what I was here on earth for,” he laughs. “And I’d much rather take laughter than a bullet any time.”
Dwayne’s topics range from current events, men and women relationships to the crazy situations he’s encountered as a police officer. As an actor, Dwayne has appeared in the ABC crime drama Detroit 1-8-7, and will be making his big screen debut in the movie “Crave” He has also been a guest on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” Radio show.
