Meet the Kings of Ktown
Danny Cho is an Asian American comedian and actor residing in Los Angeles. During the summer of 2000, Danny then took a real shot at stand-up comedy through a dare from his high school friends. Like any 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 and continued to perform at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory and the Improv.
Through the pressures of his conservative parents, Danny joined the corporate world as a business consultant but continued to perform comedy. In 2006, while still working as a business consultant, Danny had his first national tv acting gig alongside Bobby Lee on Mad TV.
In 2007, Danny hated his career as a business consultant and decided to pursue his passion for comedy and acting full-time.
In the last few years, Danny has been in various commercials and tv shows, and movies. He has a recurring role on Parks and Recreation, as China Joe. In addition, Danny has traveled around the US for his stand up comedy tour.
Recently, Danny wrote a screenplay titled Ktown Cowboys, that was accepted to the SXSW (South by Southwest) film festival in 2015. With an other feature in the works, Danny is still doing stand up all over the world.
