Letters. Funny old things? They can make you laugh. They can make you cry. They can make paper aeroplanes. This show features some of the letters you never got round to writing because you thought life was too short. Well, I think life is just about the right length, so plenty of time to write to these arseholes. Crusade is not the right word, but join me on my crusade to effect real change in this broken world. This is a stand up show with some sitting down – Danny Bhoy

“Has the audience simultaneously weeping with laughter and nodding in agreement”
Herald Sun

Danny began his stand up career in 1998 and in 1999 he won The Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, the biggest national competition in the UK for new comics. In 2001, Danny debuted his first solo show at the Edinburgh Festival to audience enrapture and critical acclaim. Since then, he has continued to build on his stand up success in the UK, with nine return visits to the Edinburgh Fringe, with his latest offerings packing out the biggest venues in town!

“His routines have the mark of those which are quoted from, for years to come”
The Herald

But, his success at home tells only a small part of the story. Since his first visit abroad to the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2003, Danny has become one of the most globally successful and prolific comics working in the world today. He has built up a massive following in Australia, New Zealand and Canada, where he regularly tours record-breaking shows. As probably the most travelled comedian working in the world today, Danny’s unique brand of story-telling and razor sharp wit has been described as “effortlessly funny”, and “the stand up equivalent of Bill Bryson”.
Danny’s first two DVD’s ‘Live at The Opera House’, and ‘Live at the Athenaeum’ released only in Australia and New Zealand, enjoyed huge success. And in early 2012, Danny recorded his first worldwide DVD in his home town of Edinburgh, ‘Live At The Festival Theatre’ which was recently released in the UK and will be released in New Zealand on March 6 through Roadshow Entertainment to coincide with the tour.

“One of the most sparkling wits in the world”
Montreal Gazette

In addition to regular appearances on Canada’s ‘Just For Laughs’ galas, Danny has also performed TV spots on ‘Live At The Apollo’ in the UK and ‘The David Letterman Show’ in the US. He has also recorded a highly prestigious one-hour Comedy Central Special.

Danny Bhoy’s worldwide fan base continues to grow and 2013 promises to be another busy year for the gifted young Scot.
