Danielle Perez is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actress best known as the woman in a wheelchair, with no feet, who won a treadmill on The Price Is Right. She appeared as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live for her hilarious reaction to winning the awkward prize.
Before viral video fame, Danielle rolled onto the Los Angeles comedy scene and quickly established herself as a unique comedic voice with her bubbly stage presence and dark wit.
A 2018 StandUp NBC Semifinalist, Danielle has opened for Maria Bamford, Guy Branum, and Laurie Kilmartin. She has performed at comedy clubs and festivals across the country including Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, and All Jane Comedy Festival.
Funny, feminist, and fierce, this bold Latina isn’t afraid to get personal. Danielle has been profiled by CNN, Great Big Story, Elizabeth Bank’s WhoHaha, and interviewed by GabiFresh. She was the face of Refinery29’s 2016 #TakeBackTheBeach campaign and photographed by Emily Berl, who received an American Photography 33 award for the images.
The Los Angeles native has created videos for BuzzFeed and starred in episodes of Super Deluxe’s Thrift Haul, Quinta Vs Everything, Fagabonds, and The Suicide Planner. She has appeared as a guest on Fat & Fly AF, Getting Wet with Sara B, The Elite Daily Show, and in sketches for Nina Daniels, Nightpantz, and Blessed.
Danielle’s personal and biting stand-up can be heard on multiple episodes of Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher’s Put Your Hands Together. Her vicious roasting skills can be seen at Roast Battle, live at The World Famous Comedy Store. Her writing has appeared in VICE.
Not just a performer, Danielle is a disability rights advocate who has spoken on the importance of diversity in comedy at the 2018 NALIP Media Summit and the USC School Of Cinematic Arts. She is an advisor on disability at Jill Soloway’s 5050by2020, an intersectional arm of the Time’s Up movement.
A founding member of Thigh Gap Comedy, Danielle produces live comedy shows with fellow bad bitches Madison Shepard and Danielle Radford. Together they host GENTRIFICATION, a popular, monthly, diversity showcase at Avenue 50 Studio, in her hometown neighborhood of Highland Park.
