Patrick J. Dancy

In 1990, The Guys Next Door were created to rival the New Kids on the Block. It began as a half hour sitcom/variety show on NBC Saturday mornings. I was glued to the tv to see one person --- New York native, Patrick J. Dancy! He was my teen heart throb. (Actually, I think he was 20. I must have been 22.) Patrick was joined by Bobby Leslie, Eddie Garcia, Damon Sharpe and Chris Wolf for silly, but fun skits, songs and dance. I'm making my crush official.
The boys sang and danced. They premiered videos. Their skits involved Boogie the Dancing Pig, the Fashion Police (wretched 90s fashions), the Pizza Guy, RoboPop and many others. They had a good time. They released an album. Which I got and loved. Then, sadly, it ended. I think the show only lasted a year. One night, I stumbled upon a Guys Next Door site where most of these images have come from. I re-lived my Patrick J. Dancy moments all over again. Plus, there's some stuff on YouTube.
Patrick and Bobby Leslie.
Patrick and Damon Sharpe.
Behind The Scenes:
The boy has a FACE on him!!!!
I saw Patrick on an episode of "Married With Children," playing a nerdy gay character in Kelly Bundy's class named Rueben. Then, I think I stumbled across him very briefly on an episode of "Family Matters" playing Laura Winslow's boyfriend. Then, sadly, I never really saw him again. He's apparently popped up in a couple of bit roles elsewhere. I found what looks like head shots of him. He's aging verrrrrrry well. I caught a trailer for a show called "She Spies" in which he starred. I got to see him chasing after a perp. Then, he was in an episode of a show I've never seen called "The Pretender."
Reunion with Damon Sharpe. This seemed to have happened in 1999, ten years after The Guys. The third person featured is Patrick's brother. Patrick looks GREAT!!! He is CUT UP!!!!
Okay. Now that I've mooned over Patrick enough, I'm going to end on these final Patrick J. Dancy pictures. Wherever you are, Patrick ... I hope you're living a good life!

I worked on 'Guys' and have tons of candid photos I took on the set and location w/ them....I havent seen or spoken w/ any of them since the show was not picked up in 91...I need to scan the pix I'll show them to you if you want. There are some really fun ones.

Hello Victor,
I must say I am quite humbled by this very special blog. I don't quite know how I got here but I wanted to say thank you very much for all of your kind words.

By now you should know that this is Patrick Dancy of GND. Those were some fun times!
Look out for something special from GND, I hear they're (we're) about to do something.

Stay tuned and spread the word! Thanks-PD

Victor Hodge said...

Whoooooa!!!!!!!!! I can only believe this is you. It looked like everybody was having a good time. I am SO onboard with any new projects you and the Guys do and will definitely spread the word. Take care, Patrick. You're alright with me.

Victor,

Let me know (if you're up to it) what those out there in cyber world are talking about; if GND is even on their radar. Thanks!

I will be on touch with you! -PD

Victor Hodge said...

Patrick
I can definitely do that. Looking forward to the project as long as you're on it.

Shannon said...

Patrick,

I am a fan of your face! Just kidding, I am a fan of your work, but I can't find any place to find recent photos, or any for that matter. Can you or Victor help a sista out? MySpace?

Victor Hodge said...

I agree. I'm willing to post them here and let people know how you've been doing.

Hello Shannon,

I will try to get Victor some recent photos.

I appreciate your kind words. Thank you...sincerely.

Victor...I'll be in touch. I've been traveling; just got back from NY. Take care friends. ~PD

Victor Hodge said...

Victor Hodge said...

I can not so reluctantly agree with you.

Hello Victor & Others!

My apologies for being out of the loop for a minute. Been crazy the past month! I'm glad to see you're all still out there....

I am working on getting Victor some recent pics... I haven't taken professional pics for a while, I hope some candid "real life" pics will suffice.

Victor, I hope you're well. I'll be in touch. -PD

Victor Hodge said...

Hey, Patrick!
I don't know how I missed this post. (Actually, I do. Facebook.) We, as yours fans, will take what we can get. If you don't know or haven't realized it, you're my most popular post. Everybody's looking forward to it. Take care of yourself!

Krista said...

Awe, this is very sweet. I told Patrick I'd make a comment on this blog. I have been friends with him for about 18 yrs. I met him when he was doing GND. I thought he was the most gorgeous guy ever! Long story short, he STILL IS!! Not to mention his soul. His soul matches is exterior, very beautiful. Hopefully he will post some of his recent photos soon. You'd be amazed at how well he keeps himself in shape. Fun to see he still has a lot of fans!!

Victor Hodge said...

Thanks for commenting on his behalf, Krista. Patrick APPARENTLY has fans seeing that he's my most popular posting. I'm really happy to hear the great things you've said about him. I loved GND and especially, as you can see, Patrick. I'm glad that it seems things have turned out well for him. A beautiful soul is the best. We fans, and I will speak for ALL of us, still eagerly await whatever news we can. Take care!

This is funny. I went to High School with Partick and he was in my Karate class in Holbrook. If you see him, tell him Joe say's hello.

Victor Hodge said...

I will definitely pass on the word. Thanks for posting. Definitely check out the update I did on him. http://victorhodge.blogspot.com/2010/07/patrick-dancy-living-well_16.html

I don't know if anyone is still on this post but... Today is Tuesday October 11, 2011. On TVONE tonite at 10:30pm EASTERN there is an episode of "Living Single" titled Virgin Territory. He's in that episode. Check it out tonite.

Victor Hodge said...

Awww, man!!!! I caught the tail end of it. That's what I get for not being on top of my e-mails!!! Drat!!! Well, at least I got to see some of it.

Denisha said...

Wow..I was watching Living Single and saw Gary(Patrick Dancy) and remembered him from Family Matters..this is crazy that I actually found someone else that was trying to watch the exact same show and episode. Patrick is a great actor and a beautiful man..glad I found this page

I met him and the guys back in the day when they were traveling around to different schools. Although he is beautiful enough to be gay, I HIGHLY doubt it since he was not only flirting with me big time, he was also "pushin' up on me"! You couldn't possibly convince me that he's gay from my own PERSONAL experience with him. I saw him years after that in an airport somewhere. I wonder what he's doing professionally. He was extremely talented!

Victor Hodge said...

Well, that's great and all, but I don't think I ever implied that Patrick was gay. I've been in a somewhat regular communication with him and have found that he's just an all around great guy. I often wonder what he's doing, too. It sounds like he bounces between both coasts. And, whatever he's doing, he seems very happy. He's still my official teen crush and MY Guy Next Door. He can be yours, too.

Michelle Santos said...

I ran I to Patrick last night at Beer Garden in Queens and I can say he looks amazing and seems like a great guy...He chilled and talked sports with my friends and I lol and I have sum greats pics

Victor Hodge said...

Good to hear!!! Patrick seems like a great guy. He disappeared from Facebook, but it sounds like from you that he's doing good. I will do nothing but wish him the best!!! Go, Patrick!!!
