Danny Bhoy productions presents
Danny Bhoy

He sold out his debut season in Auckland in 2004 and his North Island Tour in 2005. Now Scotland’s new comedy star, DANNY BHOY returns for a National Tour including his first ever show in the ‘Edinburgh of the South’ – DUNEDIN.

“Comparisons with the great masters of the art such as Jerry Seinfeld or Billy Connolly are inevitable, and certainly not unfavorable.” The Scotsman 2005

“Dismissing all the hoopla surrounding this kid, the bottom line is it’s a comedian’s job to be funny. Believe me, Danny Bhoy is funny.” The Australian

"his accents and impersonations are sublime. He banters and bounces off the audience, skips from one hilarious story to the next with a footloose air of improvisation that makes the sell-out crowd feel this show is a one-off just for them." The Sunday Age

Scottish born Danny Bhoy returns to New Zealand with his brand new show following yet another phenomenal year, which has seen him become one of the biggest acts on the international comedy scene. After touring Australasia in 2005 Danny Bhoy hasn't stopped. For the third year in a row he was one of the top selling comedians at the 2005 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and performed at prestigious ‘invitation-only’ comedy festivals in Las Vegas and Montreal alongside comedy greats Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock.

In 2006 he returns with a new show to New Zealand for a National Tour to 11 main centres including his South Island debut with shows in Christchurch, Dunedin, Nelson and Blenheim. He will also return to Auckland, Wellington, New Plymouth and Tauranga as well as performing for the first time in Hamilton and Palmerston North. With a growing reputation for some of the finest observational comedy around, and a natural gift for storytelling, his meteoric rise shows no signs of waning.
