Profile image for Danny Mulheron

Danny Mulheron

Actor, Director

Danny Mulheron has approached comedy from almost every angle: as a writer, director, inside a hippo suit, and as co-creator of the politically-incorrect Seven Periods with Mr Gormsby. But laughter is only half the story. Mulheron has also acted in a run of productions, presented car series AA Torque Show, and directed everything from documentaries (The Third Richard) to several TV dramas about iconic Kiwis.

Directing is all about connecting with people. In some ways I don’t think of directing as being any different from acting or writing: you’re working with a group of people to tell a story. Danny Mulheron
