Danny Tamberelli is a comedian, writer, actor and musician – a quadruple threat. Danny’s not new to the scene; he started his career over 25 years ago on the enormously popular Nickelodeon show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete” where he played the younger, but larger than life brother, “Little Pete”. He also starred in the programs “Figure It Out” and “All That”, the latter for which he was credited as a sketch writer in his last year on the show. He has worked with comedians such as Janeane Garofalo, Chris Elliott, Paget Brewster, Colin Hanks, Doug Benson, Matt Braunger and Paul F. Tompkins.
In 2007, Danny, Jeremy L. Balon and Brendan O’Rourke created ManBoobs Comedy, a sketch comedy troupe that has been featured on VH1, College Humor, Jest and Funny or Die. The comedy crew has performed sold out shows at SF Sketchfest (2014/2015), The Meltdown w/Jonah & Kumail, Hot Tub w/Kurt & Kristen, NY Comic Con (2014-2016), San Diego Comicon (2016) The Macaulay Culkin Show.
When he’s not showing off his seasoned comedy chops, Danny also performs in two bands. The first, Jounce, consists of Danny on bass, Matt DeSteno on guitar, and Tim Kuhl on drums (with all members contributing vocals). Jounce is a mainstay at bars, clubs, colleges, festivals and music halls, including New York’s Highline Ballroom, Gramercy Theater and DC’s State Theater. He also performs with the Undone Sweaters, A Weezer Cover Band and sketch group, featuring fellow comedians Jim Tews, Reid Faylor, and Andrew Short.
On top of all that, you can also catch Danny and his TV brother from his Nickelodeon days, Mike Maronna, on the new Feral Audio podcast, The Adventures of Danny and Mike.
