“A thoroughly endearing and funny storyteller…”
International Australian comedian Daniel Townes first hit the Sydney comedy scene with his laid-back and conversational stand-up style in 2003, and quickly made his mark as one of the country’s best live acts.
Since then, he’s performed at the prestigious invite-only Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, and won over audiences worldwide with his laconic and disarming delivery: headlining and hosting at comedy clubs throughout Australia, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, The Netherlands, and the UAE.
Daniel is a regular at comedy, fringe, and music festivals, and has performed a new show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival every year since 2005. He’s also had numerous successful seasons at Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Comedy Festival, Perth International Comedy Festival, and Edinburgh Fringe. He’s toured with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow since 2007, and hosted the Hong Kong and Singapore tours in 2013.
“A must see.”
“More gags per minute than any other comedian”
