Danny McWilliams has performed with "Funny Gay Males" since 1988 and has toured with them throughout the United States, Canada and Australia. "Funny Gay Males" - a trio of Stand Up Comedians - was founded in 1988 by Danny McWilliams and comedians Jaffe Cohen, Bob Smith and performed in New York City during the comedy boom of the late eighties/early nineties. The group wrote a book called Growing Up Gay (1995), for Disney's Hyperion Books and has appeared on national television.
About seven years ago the members amicably parted company to pursue other projects and between them have produced several books, screenplays, one person shows and have continued to appear nationally as stand up comedians.
Cohen and McWilliams teamed up with Eddie Sarfaty for a summer run in Provincetown as Funny Gay Males. They returned and embarked on their third consecutive season. In addition they have also appeared at other venues around the country.
Danny McWilliams has appeared on the Joan Rivers Show, Comedy Central and The Howard Stern show. In 1995 he performed his one-man show, Twelve Angry Women at the Solo Arts Group in New York City.
Consisting of original characters from his hometown of Queens, Twelve Angry Women included several of Danny's trademark characters such as "The Cold Cut Lady", a demanding woman who insists that the ham be sliced paper thin; a jaded law firm receptionist at the same job for 45 years who even America's Most Wanted wouldn't dare cross and a loveable, chain smoking neighbor with a mouth like a sewer. He is a regular performer at Caroline's Comedy club in New York.
