"Delightfully clever punchlines” Chortle

Danny Ward's observational humour and his slightly manic style are both endearing and very funny.  He can turn the everyday trials that we all experience into piercingly well dissected anecdotes of exasperation and obsession – with wonderfully hilarious solutions. In high demand throughout the UK and beyond, Danny performs regularly at comedy and music festivals including Hay Winter Festival, Reading and Leeds Music Festivals and annually at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2010.

“Hilarious and slightly daft … This is observational comedy at its most pragmatic and endearing”  Three Weeks, Edinburgh Fringe

“Observational gags coming thick and fast”  Leicester Mercury

"Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered ...  This is top quality stand up!" Three Weeks, Edinburgh Fringe 

"Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly-timed, slightly manic approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material." Bournemouth Echo
