GuilFest 2011 - Lineup

Danny Ward

Danny Ward's observational humour is up-beat and well honed, and his easy-going style both endearing and very funny. One of the new breed of comics with a high energy set not reliant on smut or swearing, Danny started comedy in late 2008 and has since established himself as an up and coming comic to watch.

He is booked at clubs across the UK from University gigs to 300 capacity Arts Centres as tour support to many big name acts such as ShappiKhorsandi and Mike Wilmot.  Autumn 2010 Danny is performing to returning troops as part of the Decompression Tour in Cyprus for CSE.

Danny is also booked as a compere and hosted the Reading Comedy Festival New Act Competition finals in 2009 and 2010, as well as London heats of the 2010 So You Think You're Funny comedy competition and the Jongleurs Joke Box competitions.

Edinburgh:  2010 he performed “Danny Ward + 1” as part of the PBH Free Fringe to critical acclaim:  "If there is better stand up elsewhere for free then I want to know about it, because it really would have to be world class to top this show.  Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered ...  This is top quality stand up that should have filled the venue twice over.  I implore you to go and see it!"    (Three Weeks, 4 stars, Edinburgh Festival Aug 2010)

Press: "Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly-timed, slightly manic approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material.  His often hilarious riffs on everyday shopping at discount stores created a thread that worked brilliantly throughout, with a killer ending".  (Bournmouth Echo, Oct 2010)
