Celebrating over 50 years of continuous entertainment!

“FUNNY GAY MALES” - This trio of Stand Up Comedians was founded by comedians Jaffe Cohen, Bob Smith and Danny McWilliams in New York City during the comedy boom of the late eighties. The group has performed all over the US, Australia and Canada, written a book called "Growing Up Gay" for Disney's Hyperion Books and appeared numerous times on national television.  Seven years ago the members amicably parted company to pursue other projects and between them have produced several books, screenplays, one person shows and have continued to appear nationally as stand up comedians.
