Brooklyn native Dwayne Perkins is a young vet in the comedy game. He has earned a spot in today's elite class of stand-up comics with several appearances on Comedy Central and on Conan. Most recently, he has been getting a lot of buzz for his recurring piece on The Jay Leno Show entitled "Great White Moments in Black History." Dwayne’s Comedy Central half hour special, a culmination of his talent and hard work, was very well received. It showcases his unique way of looking at life and his unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner.
Dwayne can be seen in the HBO movie The Gristle with a very memorable cameo as the lost “stereotype” in the bar scene. He appeared on The Learning Channel teaching a Seattle fireman a thing or two about comedy on the show Faking It. His comedic instincts and acting skills shine through in the independent film Target Audience 9.1 where he offers much of the comic relief as the funny like-able geek. Dwayne has also appeared in several commercials pushing products for The Man. Dwayne is part of The Bob & Tom Comedy Tour in addition to headlining colleges and comedy clubs across the country.
