Actor. Writer. Comedian.
Dante Fuoco is the writer, performer, and producer of the New Orleans hit Transplant, his darkly comic solo show about gentrification and white guilt in the so-called Big Easy. Most recently, a short story of his was named a fiction contest finalist at the Saints + Sinners Festival, and appears in this year's anthology. His writing has been featured in Instant Prose; The Philadelphia Inquirer; and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. A trained comedian, he has performed with a number of improv troupes over the years. Fuoco is a locally and nationally recognized special education teacher, and a proud graduate of Swarthmore College. He lives in New York City.
