Early on King Kountry Wayne had visions of being a huge success in the music industry. Following that dream he placed his life savings behind a music venture. However, that did not yield him the success he had hoped for. During a time of soul searching he realized he was blessed with the gift to make people laugh and it blossomed from there.
You have probably heard the stories of “starting from the bottom – now we here” before, but Wayne’s story is a little different! Yes, there have been a few mistakes along the way, yet those same mistakes that could have defeated him have instead created a man who is resilient and even more focused on making sure the people he is graced enough to impact find laughter through the pain.
A Marine, A Cop and A Comic! Dwayne Gill is a triple threat!
Feeling his job was way too serious for someone considered funny since birth; Dwayne found an outlet for his humor when he first stepped onto a comedy stage at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase in 1993. After only two more performances, he joined the ranks of professional comedians with his first paid booking at Gadzooks Comedy Club. A native of Detroit Michigan and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc, Dwayne’s taking the comedy world by storm.
“Right then I knew comedy was what I was here on earth for,” he laughs. “And I’d much rather take laughter than a bullet any time.”
Dwayne’s topics range from current events, men and women relationships to the crazy situations he’s encountered as a police officer. As an actor, Dwayne has appeared in the ABC crime drama Detroit 1-8-7, and will be making his big screen debut in the movie “Crave” He has also been a guest on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” Radio show.
Dwayne has shared the stage with well-known comedians like Jim Norton, Greg Giraldo, Kathleen Madigan and Last Comic Standing’s John Heffron, Alonzo Bodden and Rich Vos. Dwayne Gill is one of the fastest rising comics on the national scene today.
Dwayne was voted “Best of the Fest” at the San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival 2013, was the Wildcard Winner in the Stand Up its Miller Time National Comedy Contest with Kevin Hart 2012 and Best of the Midwest in Gilda’s Laughfest 2011. So if you have never met a cop with a sense of humor, then it’s obvious you haven’t met Dwayne!
