Danny Hackin

Danny Hackin is a Los Angeles based artist. He has been a performance artist since the age of six. Danny is not only an actor and improviser but also a writer of spoken word poetry. He has performed in theaters throughout Los Angeles such as the Fringe Festival, City Garage, Theatricum Botanicum and is currently an associate member of The Actors Gang and a member of the improv team Felix at the Westside comedy theater (currently on hiatus due to COVID).

When Danny is not performing he is climbing volcanoes, fighting bears in the mountains, and saving sovereign nations from despotic dictatorships. He puts his country first and his country does the same. Danny once killed a gazelle with a finger and not the one you think would be used. He reinvented the wheel to make it spin the other way. Yes that was him, and he wants to say, you’re welcome!
