Brooklyn native, Dwayne Perkins, is a young vet in the comedy game. With appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Premium Blend, Perkins has earned a spot in today’s class of elite stand up comics. Perkins is a regular crowd pleaser in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles. The recent culmination of Perkins' talent and work has resulted in his very own Comedy Central Presents half-hour special. The very well received special showcases Perkins' unique way of looking at life and unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner. In many ways still a newbie himself, Perkins is already inspiring newer comics.
With his comedy well-grounded and still growing, Perkins now sets his sights on acting and writing. Look for Perkins in the HBO movie The Gristle, but don’t look away, you might miss him. Still, Perkins offers a very memorable cameo as the lost stereotype in the bar scene.
Catch Perkins on TLC, teaching a Seattle fireman a thing or two about comedy on the show Faking It. Perkins' comedy instincts and acting skills shine through in the soon to be released independent film Target Audience 9.1. In a movie rich with talent, where The Breakfast Club meets Night of the Comet, Perkins offers much comic relief as the funny likeable geek.
Lastly, don’t TiVo out those commercials, because you never know when Perkins will pop up in an ad pushing products for the Man.
