Danny Shorago is an actor, musician, writer, and filmmaker. Most recently, he provided the voice of Fallout 4’s Hancock, the debauched yet lovable ghoul mayor of the misfit town of Goodneighbor.
Other game VO credits include shadowy businessman Rashid Al Mohammed in NCIS, dart bar owner Richard Dunn of Deadly Premonition, funeral director Melvi in Lost Odyssey, were-tiger Brad in Project Altered Beast, hoverboarding hooligan Nomad in EyeToy: AntiGrav, and the hauntingly sinister ghouls of Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors…as well as additional roles in such games as Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight and the Last Raven and Nexus installments of the Armored Core series.
Danny’s video game work also features his singing voice, which can be heard on such games as Rock Band, numerous titles from the Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution series, Samba de Amigo Wii, and Voodoo Vince.
Danny’s additional VO credits include work in film, TV, radio, and the web: from narration on the History Channel for Lucasfilm’s Young Indiana Jones documentary series, to performing multiple character voices for Public Radio International’s The Undiscovered Explorer (narrated by Danny Glover), to voicing national commercial campaigns, to providing narration and character voices for his animated short “Marylou” — which screened in competition at the Cannes and Sundance film festivals and was broadcast throughout Europe and on US television on HBO.
Danny’s on-camera credits include an appearance in the indie feature comedy Man Maid, which also featured Jane Lynch. Other work includes a turn as a street-fighting toddler in a national TV ad, and a performance in both the title role and some thirty additional parts for his own surreally comedic, award-winning mini-musical video, “Mimsy.” Behind the scenes, Danny was a contributing writer to comedic segments that aired on CNN Saturday Morning and CNN Newsroom.
Danny is currently the ringleader and lead vocalist of The Fuxedos, America’s favorite surreally comedic, theatrical, punky art rock band — complete with costumes, props, bizarrely humorous theatrics, hefty doses of satire, and freakishly tight musicianship. Performances include appearances on Comedy Central and on the legendary Dr. Demento’s web series, as well as live performances at the Fox Theater in Oakland and at LA’s Eagle Rock Music Festival.

The Fuxedos are America’s favorite surreally comedic, theatrical punky art rock band — complete with costumes, props, bizarrely humorous theatrics, hefty doses of satire, and freakishly tight musicianship.
Ringleader and vocalist Danny Shorago hurls himself headlong into every performance, accompanying his powerful and wide-ranging baritone with the physical leaps and contortions of a trained clown, the quick wit of an improv comedian, the surrealist sensibilities of a dada performance artist, and a rock & roll ferocity approaching that of vintage Iggy Pop or Henry Rollins. Danny is also an actor, writer, and filmmaker who recently provided the voice of Fallout 4’s Hancock, the debauched yet lovable ghoul mayor of the misfit town of Goodneighbor. Danny’s films have screened in competition at such festivals as Sundance and Cannes, and his videos include the award-winning musical short “Mimsy” — which is included on the band’s CD debut.
Mixed by Steve “Steve B” Baughman, whose credits include Michael Jackson, 50 Cent, and Eminem — and dynamically mastered by Dylan “3-D” Dresdow, who’s worked with everyone from the Black Eyed Peas to U2 to the Wu-Tang Clan — their debut represents the unholy collision of Fuxed-up creativity and High Production Value, and was described as “visionary” and “hilarious” by American Songwriter Magazine. Meanwhile, The Fuxedos have been gaining notice and blowing minds through the power of their unusual live performances. The band’s sound and stage show are unique and defy easy categorization, but the result is an innovative, high-energy, theatrical, and hilarious show — underscored by creative, eclectic, and unusually skilled musicianship.
Performances include appearances on Comedy Central and on the web with the legendary Dr. Demento, as well as live performances at the Fox Theater in Oakland, LA’s Eagle Rock Music Festival, and the late, great Tonic in NYC.
Members’ touring credits include such bands and acts as Zappa Plays Zappa, Les Claypool, Coheed and Cambria, Secret Chiefs 3, Faun Fables, and Cirque du Soleil. Individually, they’ve worked with everyone from Erykah Badu to Eric Clapton, and from indie rockers Silversun Pickups to rapper Game…and have appeared on the Rock Band, Arrested Development, and Family Guy soundtracks, as well as on Hans Zimmer’s score to The Dark Knight.
“One of the most amazing, entertaining, enthralling, unique, hilarious, and inspirational bands I have ever seen…Danny was a musical maniac on stage, donning masks, using crazy props, dancing up an astounding storm, singing dynamically, stomping, prancing, being riotously funny and crazed and mind-blowing.”

“…The tremendously talented and insane band, The Fuxedos…their live shows combine brilliance and chaos with almost hallucinatory visual stimulation…always an adventure…” — Keyboard Magazine
