Professional, accommodating, diplomatic, charismatic and, of course, funny. That's how I'd describe Dwayne's performance at our trade show event. He was a gentleman from the moment he arrived. The venue had some logistical challenges, but Dwayne made the best of it and brought lots of warm smiles and hearty laughter to a cold spring evening with an audience ready to settle into 'reception' mode after a long conference day.
As a professional stand-up comedian Dwayne is known for his engaging personality and stage presence, he can be depended on to serve up laughter wherever he appears. And when it comes to protecting, it's not your funny bone he's worried about - it's the citizens of Michigan, since he's also a police officer.
Dwayne's topics range from current events, relationships, and the crazy things he's encountered as a police officer, and former Marine. He made his television debut on NBC's syndicated talk show "Night Shift with Kevin Ferguson", has appeared on NBC's Last Comic Standing and is the 2006 Winner of the "World's Funniest Cop Competition". He recently appeared on the Bob and Tom Nationally Syndicated Radio/TV show on the WGN America Network. His show has pleased comedy club audiences and corporate functions all over the country.
He has shared the stage with well-known comedians like Louie Anderson, Greg Giraldo, Emo Phillips, and Last Comic Standing's Ralphie May, Alonzo Bodden and John Heffron. Dwayne Gill is one of the fastest rising comics on the national scene today.
