With an amiable, confident stage presence and a well written set, Danny delivers material with more than just an immediate pay-off line, preferring to take the joke one or two steps further.
Confident enough to take a risk on stage he does so not to the detriment of the audience, keeping them laughing along or hanging on every word.
A bright future surely awaits.
'McLoughlin's main weapon is his audacity: he's so bold he can recite an advertising jingle and still get plenty of laughs' (Chortle).
