From Long Island, New York. Weighing in at a hundred and blah blah blah..........Gary Valentine got his start in show business on the stand up comedy stage. After an appearance at the Montreal Comedy Festival, he left his native New York for heavier traffic in Los Angeles.

He's been headlining comedy clubs and theaters for the past fifteen years.

Valentine is best know for his nine seasons as Cousin Danny on the hit CBS sitcom, "The King of Queens." As well as appearing on screen, he co-wrote a few episodes, which he claims...are the best.

Prior to his run on the series, he starred in his own half hour special on Comedy Central along with hosting "The X Show" on FX.
