Biography:
Daniele Gaither was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on September 6th, 1972. At an early age she knew she was destined for comedy. She was always the class clown, had a knack for story telling and a love for mimicking those around her. She left Minnesota to attend Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois (The very same University that original MADtv cast member Nicole Sullivan attended) and began doing improvisation, which she says is what she loves doing most. In 1993, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, and attend the Groundlings School, where aspiring sketch and improv performers are given a systematic approach to learning improvisation and writing skills. Trained by Michael McDonald (prior to his time on MADtv), Daniele graduated the advanced level and is now a member of the Main Stage Cast and performs at the Thursday Night Improv Show at the Groundlings theatre on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. In her comedy, she tries to represent people that you see in the streets and know in everyday life, and sometimes uses her family experiences as material, which has gotten her into trouble in the past. She does impressions of people that she grew up admiring, like Patty Labelle, Marla Gibbs and Isabelle Sanford, but also does impressions of current celebrities like Oprah, Star Jones and L'il Kim. Daniele has a strong interest in politics and "votes early and often," but admits to being scared of the thought of having Arnold running for Governor while Terminator 3 was playing in theatres. Daniele also enjoys publicly televised Courtroom trials; she moved to Los Angeles at the beginning of the OJ Simpson trial and was hooked. She considers them the "ultimate human drama" and likes "seeing people's BS exposed". Daniele is a stringent vegetarian and animal lover, and was one of the 180 celebrities nominated for PETA's 2004 "World's Sexiest Vegetarians", which Alicia Silverstone won. She also recently co-hosted the "2003 Rotten Jellyfish awards" with fellow Groundling Jennifer Coolidge.

Where are they now?
As of Spring 2007, Daniele is currently working on an untitled project with Rob Roy.

I don't remember much, but anyone who's computer is working better than mine, can go to www.groundlings.com and look under About the Groundlings, and see if you can get to Meet the Groundlings from there. Also, madtv.com had some biographical info on her somewhere, too!

I just watched epdisode 202 for the first time today and guess what? Whoa, Daniele Gaither was in the "Dolemite Debate" sketch! She was also listed in the closing credits as:

Co-starring
Daniele Gaither ..... Dolemite Girl # 1

I never new she played on MADtv as an extra. I wonder if she played in any other sketches or if anyone else appeared as an extra before being hired.

BTW, this isn't a sketch from the recurring Dolemite series.

Why don't u look up your tv listings like tv.yahoo.com and type in Danielle's name. It should say something especially if its a substantial role.

I realy don't find this amazing at all. Do you know how close Groundlings is to the Hollywood center studios? It's only a few streets away! Also, the groundlings look out for their own, and there have always been groundlings on MADTV. Jordan Black was on last season, not even as an extra, he was the guy in the Star Dates sketch!

That's what you get for intermittently surfing at work, after so long this site logges you off of the "who's online" and then some new posts that you havn't read yet still don't have new post indicators when you get back to surfing boy this is a mouthful.

Actually, the new post indicators drive me crazy. they are wrong a lot of the time, so i tend to ignore them sometimes, or clear them all.

Daniele hosted the "2003 Rotten Jellyfish Awards" with funny lady Jennifer Coolidge (Stiflers Mom from "American Pie", "Legally Blonde" and "Best in Show") there are videos too... I kinda don't understand these awards, I guess because Daniele is a vegetarian and animal lover, and this is a conservation thingy, she offered, or was asked to host, but I Jennifer Coolidge. She's reminds me so much of Kathy Najimy (Who I also think is hilarious!) There are videos for those of you with quicktime who want to watch them.


LOL, Daniele's hair looks like a rotten Jellyfish.
