"...Because Danny Palumbo, winner of this year’s Funniest Person in Austin contest at Cap City Comedy Club back in May, is also a chef...."
"...That was Danny Palumbo's commentary on being named the Funniest Person in Austin 2015, and his poke at the pale underbelly of our city's annual comedy competition was not lost on the crowd, which roared as it had for his stellar set of material earlier in the evening. This is, after all, a contest which has seen only five women winners over 30 years and even fewer comedians of color claim the crown..."
"...In an e-mail interview, album contributor and Sure Thing regular Danny Palumbo (of the joke site Lil' Buco) discussed how he approached his set for Sure Thing (Live!): "I choose bits based off of the situation, but I try my hardest not to write things for a specific situation. Like I opened up for Big Jay Oakerson recently at Cap [City Comedy Club], and he is hilarious and dirty..."
"...Fomented and formulated by Austin's own Danny Palumbo, who previously brought us the kindercore foodie hilarity of lil' buco, the Abbrev's website is Best-of-The-Onion-level funny. No wonder Mac Blake and Joe Hafkey chose this Palumbo (along with Aaron Brooks) to take over the Jazz Cigarette stage; no wonder Palumbo's weekly "Live at Coldtowne" stand-up showcase is such a popular show...."
"...Danny Palumbo, comedian: Because they're my Grandpa and they won't be around long enough to see the world end...."
"...The next moment is frozen in time. I think Danny Palumbo, the 2015 Funniest Person in Austin winner, put his experience on AGT best..."
"...Since last year, the comic's fan base has grown, in large part due to a series of performances at the Spider House Ballroom. Twice a month, he and reigning Funniest Person in Austin Danny Palumbo host a show called Bounce House, which regularly attracts a parade of local stars like Jon Mendoza, Michael Malamud, and Kath Barbadoro..."
"...The first act up was Danny Palumbo. Though his jokes’ contents varied from quitting cigarettes to internet search histories, his segues were so smooth and seamless that it was hard to notice where one joke ended and another began..."
"...Hafkey: Jazz Cigarette isn't going anywhere. Mac and I are going to continue producing that show, but we've handed off hosting duties to two of our most trusted and hilarious scamps, Danny Palumbo and Aaron Brooks..."
"...Co-hosted by Chris Tellez and AJ Henderson, the weekly show asks guests to come in and force the aggressively apathetic duo to care about something. Past episodes have included Pat Sirois (Trainspotting), Danny Palumbo (the Cleveland Indians), Mike Wiebe (skateboarding), and Elizabeth Spears (the left lane is for passing only)..."
"...The contest finale will be just as it has been in past years: hosted by last year's winner – in this case, Danny Palumbo – with each finalist getting eight minutes to win over the crowd and the guest judges. However, one thing about contest host Cap City Comedy Club will be new..."
"...And if you were at all concerned about Austin comics being part of the fifth Moontower, let me ease your mind. The new roster includes such local favories as Chris Cubas, Chris Trew, Matt Bearden, Lashonda Lester, Mac Blake, Maggie Maye, Matt Sadler, Brian Gaar, Kerri Lendo, Amber Bixby, Ralph Hardesty, Andrew Dismukes, Bob Khosravi, Brently Heilbron, Bryan Gutmann, Danny Palumbo, Joe Hafkey, and Martha "Baskets" Kelly...."
"...How about Matt Bearden briefly ditching those KLBJ airwaves and cracking you up in person? Damn right. How about 2015's Funniest Person In Austin, Danny Palumbo, slaying you with his spectral comedy stylings? Yes! How about an entire Stygian riverboat of local comics taking the stage to channel the dearly departed in one big, creepy … uh … post-mort-a-palooza?..."
"...Although it’s informed by a sharp awareness of modern culture, this 101 Ways to Use a Unicorn by Robb Pearlman and Dave Urban isn’t a particularly arch bit of satire – like Danny Palumbo’s fake foodie website Abbrev’s, say – and probably none of its gags will reduce you to tears of hilarity the way spot-on articles in The Onion sometimes can...."
"...Danny Palumbo, Comedian: The hardest thing is remembering what the hell they are. That's why I write them down on my wall..."
"...Danny Palumbo remains an area of ignorance for us – but we hear the man's got brains and chops and all that good professional comedy stuff...."
