Danny Smith was born in Montreal but moved to Pickering, Ontario at the age of seven.

He went on to study and perform improvisational comedy at The Second City in Toronto, one of his teachers being SCTV's Joe Flaherty. This led to lead roles on television ("It's Alive!", "Big Wolf on Campus") and film ("National Lampoon's Senior Trip", "All I Wanna Do", "The Big Hit".)

He also wrote and performed the "Big Wolf on Campus" theme song, as well as scoring some scenes.

In 2000, he was one of eight men flown to New York City to audition for Saturday Night Live, exclusively for Lorne Michaels.

Danny lives in Toronto and Los Angeles where he was the singer/songwriter/guitarist/pianist for the now-defunct rock band The City Drive (Sony Records). The band released "Always Moving Never Stopping" (2006) and "Egocentral EP"(2007) and opened for Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Goo Goo Dolls and Hoobastank.

In 2010, Danny appeared in Disney's "Harriet The Spy", "The Ron James Show" and the film "Suck" which won the Audience Award for Best Film at the Whistler Film Festival.
