Mini Bio (1)

Dan Monahan graduated from Ohio University, where he studied in its prestigious Professional Actors Training Program. After graduation Dan moved to New York and started performing in commercials, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway theatrical productions. He was soon cast in what he considers one of his favorite engagements, the Broadway production of Richard III, starring Al Pacino at the Court Theatre.

Versatile, charismatic, and blessed with an impeccable sense of comic timing, Dan made his film debut in the Joe D'Amato erotic parody Paradiso Blu (1980). Monahan's talent was acknowledged by writer/director Bob Clark, who cast him in what would become his most recognizable role: the quintessential oversexed teen "Pee Wee" in Clark's blockbuster 80's teen-sex comedy Porky's (1982). Dan starred in the feature comedy Up the Creek (1984) with Animal House veteran 'Tim Matheson', in the thriller The Night Flier (1997) with Miguel Ferrer, and has appeared in the films Baby Geniuses (1999), Shattered Illusions (1998), and From the Hip (1987) as well as in such notable television movies and mini-series as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1981) and How the West Was Won (1978). He has also performed at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, worked with The Abbey Theatre Company of Ireland, The Burt Reynolds Theatre in Jupiter, Florida, and with a number of regional and community theaters throughout the US.

Dan is married, has a grown daughter and spends his leisure time dabbling in photography and golf. He recently chalked playing the Old Course in Scotland off his bucket list, but is still awaiting that invitation to play Augusta.
