Danny Mcmaster

 

A seasoned world traveller, Danny, one of the world's best impressionists, is now back in his native Australia performing after working the length and breadth of the USA. Whether it was headlining the Hollywood Improv , Pasadena's "Ice House", the Las Vegas' Riviera Hotel or corporate gigs in California, Florida, Washington, New York or Pennsylvania , Danny's been doing it all. Now he's back home 'among the gum trees' domiciled in his hometown of the Gold Coast, ready to go. 

Whilst in Hollywood, Danny did 'identical voiceovers' for the likes of John Travolta ("Basic") and Robert DeNiro ("15 Minutes" & "Men Of Honor") and would you believe Daffy Duck ? He also worked on "Mission Impossible II" with Tom Cruise doing Australian voiceovers. 

In two separate corporate gigs in the US, Danny entertained and rubbed shoulders with golfers, TV, recording and movie stars such as Tom Watson, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Tom Kite, John Daly, Joe Pesci, Justin Timberlake,   Samuel L. Jackson, Leslie Neilsen ("The Naked Gun" series) and Glenn Frey of "The Eagles" as well as catching up with old mates Ian Baker-Finch, Rodger Davis, Rod Pampling, Stuart Appleby and Robert Allenby leading money winners on the USPGA and Senior circuits .

He has performed in front of Prime Ministers, Cabinet Ministers both federally and at state level, corporations, sporting clubs and functions (for just about anything) all over Australia, New Zealand, New Guniea, Asia and the USA. He's done numerous voiceovers for commercials on radio and television and performed on every major television show in Australia in a career that's gone over the 25-year mark.  He was the voice behind "Australia's Funniest Home Video Show" on Australia's Nine Network from 1990-1999. He's equally at home doing corporate gigs, clubs or just about anywhere. 

His impressions include  Dr. Phil, Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Jack Nicholson, Christopher Walken, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, John Cleese, Bill Clinton, Bruce Willis, George W. Bush  and  Morgan Freeman  together with the old Australian favourites like John Howard, Peter Harvey  and Richie Benaud... and not forgetting the famous "12 Days Of Christmas" where this very unorthodox rendition of the Christmas classic gets a decidedly Australian twist complete with Bundaberg Rum, Homer Simpson , a run-in with the police and a big dose of Berocca . (Please visit www.myspace.com/dannymcmastercomedy to hear this hilarious comedy routine.)

He has opened shows for a number of overseas acts including Don McLean ("American Pie"), the late Sammy Davis Jnr ., Mary Wilson of "The Supremes", as well as our own, The Little River Band and Marcia Hines , to name a just a few. Glen Shorrock (lead singer of "The Little River Band") says, "This guy is fantastic. He's funny...and...HE CAN SING!" And he adds, tongue-in-cheek, "Of course, his 'Joe Cocker' is not as good as mine."
