Daniel Marcus Raymont is a chameleonic performer whose acutely observed impersonations have fooled just about everybody he’s met. His work reflects his family background: one-part Dallas royalty, another part Latin American socialist.
Born in New York, and raised by his Texan mother and Germanic-Argentine-Mexican father in Mexico and D.C., only to spend time in Maine, London, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles, he has recently moved to Brooklyn where he plans to grow roots with his Japanese-Irish wife.
His tv work includes a recurring role in the Nickelodeon show, “The Naked Brothers Band”, the ABC sitcom, “The Knights of Prosperity” and fox’s “New Amsterdam”. Film work includes “Watching the Detectives” (which screened at the Tribeca Film Festival), “My Name is Nigel Cook”, “The F word”, and “Freaky Friday”.
Daniel is currently performing his solo show “The store” based on his 10 years at neiman-marcus, Beverly hills. It’s seven characters in 30 minutes. A hilarious tale of fashion, commerce and revolution spiced with incomparable wit. See www.jazzyd.com for more info.
He has also appeared in countless commercials including Heineken, Visa, and Burger King (as Ugoff).
When he is not fooling your eyes and ears by appearing as a Transylvanian one minute then a Frenchman the next, he spends his time developing a men’s clothing line using high quality Italian fabrics at a Brooklyn factory run by a Czech Holocaust survivor.
