Personal life Edit
"I have been super fat and queer and Black on the internet for a few years now, so there's nothing you can say that's really going to hurt me." ~ Danielle RadfordDanielle was born c.1981 in Tacoma, Washington. Her exact birthday is unknown. Several members of her family are in the military and she grew up on a military base. When she was younger, Danielle moved around a lot and lived in Washington and Hawaii. Danielle loved theater at High School and once played Jo in Little Women. She briefly wanted to be an opera singer. Danielle studied acting at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA from 1999-2001. Danielle didn't finish college. Prior to becoming a comedian/writer, Danielle worked in many others jobs, including selling video games and being a paralegal. Danielle moved to LA in 2014 to pursue her comedy career.
Danielle loves wrestling. She also has a passionate appreciation for trash movies like Showgirls. Her absolute adoration of the hot mess that was Venom cannot be overstated - despite (or perhaps because of?) her frustration with Michelle Williams' terrible wig. She also likes comic books, Angel, The Hunger Games and Doctor Who.
In 2018, Danielle spoke out about the substandard medical care she received after being hit by a bus - the hospital merely gave her Advil and sent her on her way. Danielle has also spoken publicly about experiencing depression and having ADHD.
