"It is his powers of observation that make him so entertaining. Outrageously funny!"
"Exciting and imaginative"
"Genuinely hilarious. He has a show that other more famous comedians would be proud of."
Dan Nightingale is widely regarded as one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today.
He headlines all the major comedy clubs in the UK, won Best Act at North West Comedy Awards 2018 & 2019 and is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe. Both a storyteller and an observational comedian his stand-up is playful, honest, clever and creative. Astute, even acerbic social satire within a set of hilarious treal life anecdotes, brought to life by big characters and engaging performance.
Dan began his comedy career in Newcastle in 2002, and is now one of the most recognisable faces on the North West Comedy circuit. He founded the Frog and Buckets ‘Beat the Frog’ amateur night, which quickly became the best new comedy night in the North. As well as his reputation as a top-class circuit headliner and in-demand MC and host, he has also performed regular TV warm up for the likes of Jonathan Ross, John Bishop and Celebrity Juice.
Dan has also become a regular crowd pleaser, with critically acclaimed success at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, having performed solo shows in 2008, 2012 and 2013. He returned in 2014 with his hour long, one man tour de force; ‘Dan Nightingale is Trying His Best Not to be a Dick’ (he loves a punchy title) which received 5 ★★★★ reviews.
He is also a podcaster and has a hit weekly comedy podcast available for download called ‘Have a Word’ with Adam Rowe.
