Dan Donohue's Bio

DAN DONOHUE is a comedian, actor, and writer from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. He cut his teeth as a stand up in Boston before moving to Los Angeles where he regularly performs at the city’s iconic comedy venues. He can be seen throughout the rest of the country, headlining clubs, seminal indie rooms, and occasionally featuring for comedian and actor Jon Rudnitsky. He has also opened for Ryan Hamilton and late legend Norm MacDonald, among other names. Dan hosts the podcast Danswers, formerly co-hosted Basket of Cats (with comedian Benton Ray), and is a frequent guest on Soberish with Jessa Reed. He can also be heard on A Closer Look, The Todd Glass Show, Cutting Weight, and more. In 2020, Dan began to amass a major following on Tik Tok and Instagram by telling jokes while washing dishes. He continues to develop his comedy in various formats for his rapidly growing fanbase.

Before becoming a full-time comic, Dan worked as a night club security guard, construction worker, carpenter, physical therapy aid, restaurant runner, bike shop repairman, graveyard worker, tech assemblyman, and in waste management. Naturally, his hobbies now include yoga, meditating, and hiking. He still dabbles as a personal fitness and boxing trainer in his spare time and can sometimes be seen yelling at his famous clientele at an outdoor gym in Hollywood.
