Vice President & Acting Coach

Cuban-american, born and raised in Hialeah, Fl. Daniel studied Theater at New World School of the Arts in Miami. He has participated in several plays, a couple of independent movies and a tour of Florida with “Fantasy Theatre Factory”, but his true passion is improvisation. He is a member of Miami's own Que Pasa Improv and FYTC, where his improv skills, talent and comedic timing, have led him to become the in house acting coach for the rest of the group.

Did you know Daniel is a true Miamian? Not only was he born here, but he bleeds Dolphins, Marlins, Hurricanes, Heat and now... Herons too!

When he is not performing or at work  in his family business, you can catch him at a game, cheering for his team and working the crowds!

The funniest bilingual Venezuelan comedian with Dutch nationality.

Milton Granadillo moved to Miami in 2016 and he’s been a part of FYTC ever since. He’s a Stand-up comedian and an improviser, in English and Spanish.

In 2018 he produced his first solo show: “Yes, all of it happened”. A great success, according to unreliable sources such as his mother and dozens of miscellaneous family members that didn’t watch in person. Seriously though, the show attendance was huge on three separate nights, and gained great feedback.

When this amazingly brilliant comical genius is not writing his own Bio for this webpage, he’s performing at any stage available, specially his favorite one: The Olympia Theater Lobby Lounge.
