"I make a lot of mistakes in life. Not because I'm human,
but because... I have no clue what the hell I'm doing." -- Dawan Owens

About D

Standing at six feet four inches, Baltimore native, Dawan Owens for some reason has never had a problem commanding an audience's attention.

A high school standout, Dawan earned a spot on University of Pittsburgh's football and later the baseball team. "When people ask me if I played football in college, I ask them to define what they mean by 'play.' If playing means being on the team, then oh yeah, I played. But if by 'play', they mean participation in an actual intercollegiate athletic event - if they want to get all technical - I plead the fifth."

After graduating from Pitt, with a Bachelor’s in Information Science, Dawan began working in Corporate America for an IT consulting firms. But he soon realized that comedy was his true calling, so he decided to pick up a microphone and go after his dream. After performing on Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight, Dawan booked his first ever acting job as a Series Regular on the Bobby Lee Pilot and hasn’t stopped working since.

Coming off a series regular role in Tyler Perry’s If Loving You is Wrong (Oprah Winfrey Network), Dawan’s recent credits also include recurring roles on The Ranch and Greenleaf. In what some have a called a break out role, Dawan can be seen in the Netflix Original upcoming film, 6 Balloons, alongside Dave Franco and Abbie Jacobson.
