It all started in the summer of 2000. A couple of friends dared Danny Cho to try stand-up. Just out of high school, Danny agreed and his friends entered him into an open mic night at a café in the middle of South Central LA. The café offered $ 500 dollars to the best open mic participant. Long story short, Danny was $ 500 richer and was bitten by the comedy bug.
While attending UCLA, Danny performed stand-up at various colleges throughout the nation. These colleges include:
- Claremont Colleges
- Yale University
- University of Pittsburg
- Northwestern University
