Description

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_, and Premium Blend, Dwayne has earned a spot in today’s class of elite stand-up comics. Dwayne is a regular crowd pleaser in New York, Boston and Los Angeles. The recent culmination of Dwayne’s talent and work has resulted in his very own _Comedy Central Presents _half hour special. The very well received special showcases Dwayne’s unique way of looking at life and unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner.

In many ways still a newbie himself, Dwayne is already inspiring newer comics. With his comedy well grounded and still growing, Dwayne now sets his sights on acting and writing. Look for Dwayne in the HBO movie The Gristle, but don’t look away or you might miss him. Still, Dwayne offers a very memorable cameo as the lost “stereotype” in the bar scene. Catch Dwayne on The Learning Channel teaching a Seattle fireman a thing or two about comedy on the show Faking It.

Dwayne’s comedic instincts and acting skill shine through in the soon to be released independent film Target Audience 9.1_. In a movie rich with talent, where Breakfast Club_ meets_ Night of the Last Comet_, Dwayne offers much comic relief as the funny likeable geek. Lastly, don’t Tivo out those commercials as you never know when Dwayne will pop up in an ad pushing products for The Man.
