This episode of ActingUpRadio.com I talked with standup comedian, writer, actor and man that wears many hats, but does NOT know his size… Daniel Eachus! I originally saw Daniel at a stand up club at a huge casino in the town of Temecula, California < an Oxymoron… I knew right off the bat by watching him he was a lot bigger than the space he was playing in. He, and I am sure he hears this a lot, was by far the best comedian of the whole night, of course he was the ONLY comedian (rim shot) .. no he was not alone that night performing, but he was the headliner, and rightfully so. He smooth delivery and casualness ( not to be confused with the new style comedy called – I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK, COMEDY) was NATURAL, at ease and funny, and I rarely give that compliment to anyone …other than myself ;). sit back and listen to a fun show!
Daniel Eachus bio:
Daniel Eachus is a rising young star in the comedy world. Even at such a young age, Eachus has the chops of a comedy veteran and people are taking notice. Born and raised in Fresno, CA, he was surrounded by farms, but didn’t want to smell raisins for the rest of his life, so he turned to comedy to get him out. For college, Daniel’s wish came true and he left Fresno to study in Long Beach. By day, he was a student, by night he performed on the stand-up comedy circuit. After just one year of nightly performances, he became the youngest finalist ever in the “Funniest Comic in Los Angeles” contest held at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. He’s been entertaining audiences ever since.
Eachus has been performing stand-up and improv throughout the nation’s clubs and recently was featured on Comedy Central’s “Up Next” and Sirius XM’s Comedy Central Radio. A finalist or winner in scores of comedy competitions including the World Series of Comedy, Up Next Regionals, Sacramento Comedy Festival (1st place winner), OC Improv Cup and more, he’s considering expanding his trophy shelf.
But doing stand-up and improv is not enough for Daniel. When he’s not onstage making people laugh, he’s making people laugh at their screens. Daniel acts, writes, and produces the comedy sketch series, “Bigfoot Chasers”. He is a co-writer on a brand new Kevin Hart-Produced Series. He’s starred in 10 National Television Commercials, was featured on SpikeTV, and recently made his stand-up television debut on Fox’s “Laughs”.
