A Showcase of LGBTQ and Ally Comedians with Headliner Daniel Franzese from MEAN GIRLS

Damian from Mean Girls

Most loved for his iconic role as Damian in Tina Fey’s cult classic MEAN GIRLS, Daniel has been everywhere from stage to screen. He started his career on the coffee tables of his aunts and uncle in Brooklyn, and that has led him all the way to Hollywood starting on ABC’s CONVICTION as Jackson Morrison and has been seen in breakout roles on Freeform’s Recovery Road and HBO’s Looking and The Comeback. He’s hosted the GLAAD awards, co-wrote the 2011 NYFF award-winning musical Jersey Shoresical: A Friggin Rock Opera! and continues to delight audiences in his hit YouTube series Sh*t Italian Mom’s Say! Next Daniel will be seen as a lead in the comedy film Hypnotized as a man who is stuck in a hypnosis thinking he’s a pregnant woman!
