Ep. 177 Danny Martinello – A Bad Kid
- Danny Martinello - A Bad Kid
The Quik & Slow Comedy Show is out of the basement this week and proud to have the very special guest, Danny Martinello. Danny is a live wire with a short attention span and almost no filter. He is energetic and uproariously funny!
Once a self-proclaimed ‘bad kid’, Martinello turned his life around in the tenth grade after a run in with a bully’s fist. After finding his bearings in performing arts, he was offered a full-ride scholarship for acting. He turned down that offer in order to pursue his passion for improv and stand-up comedy.
Danny recants the tales that helped his life find focus including setting a playground on fire one afternoon, getting kicked out of elementary and high school, cleaning a hamster, and his successful audition for the Groundlings; an L.A. based theater group that preps young improvisers for Saturday Night Live.
Nick, Aaron and sound engineer, Sam Aquadollars, are joined by last week’s guest, Matt Labucki, social media intern and artist, Jamee Nall, and a short visit by Edmonton’s oldest, living hairless cat, Nathan Semenyna.
