Danny Ward’s observational humour and his slightly manic style are both endearing and very funny.
He can turn the everyday trials that we all experience into piercingly well dissected anecdotes of exasperation and obsession – with wonderfully hilarious solutions. Professional since 2010, Danny performs throughout the UK and abroad at clubs, theatres and festivals.
A self proclaimed tataholic, Danny Ward is on a mission to spread the lesson he refuses to learn – when you try and do things on the cheap, it ends up costing you more.
He was nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year in 2013 and has gigged extensively across the UK including comedy venues such as The Glee Clubs, Jongleurs, The Highlight, Just The Tonic, Baby Blue, Komedia, the Bearcat and Downstairs At The Kings Head.
He has also performed in Northern Ireland at the Belfast Empire, as well as in Germany, Tenerife, Maastricht and Croatia.
'Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered... This is top quality stand up...' (Three Weeks)

'Dr George Ryegold has, I am delighted to report, lost none of his dyspeptic misanthropy... he is not so much close to the bone as shaving slices off it. But trust him, he is a doctor. Go and be roundly abused by Doctor George – you’ll feel better for it' (The Scotsman)
'Tremendous fun... it's stuff like this that makes the fringe great' (Three Weeks)
'Lashings of gallows humour... beautifully crafted' (The Stage)
'Wicked...twisted...deliciously dark' (Time Out)
'...as sick as Jim Jeffries, but with the vocabulary of Stephen Fry...some of the most hilariously bad-taste lines of the festival' (Chortle).
George Ryegold aka Toby Williams tour dates
Watching The Young Ones with his brothers as an eight year old, at two in the morning on Comic Relief, he realised then that he wanted to be funny in some way. Relaxed and improvisatory, Andrew Bird is one of those rare comedians who makes friends with his audiences in an instant with his engaging mix of childhood stories and more recent anecdotes.
He has supported Rhod Gilbert, Lee Hurst and Michael McIntyre as well as performing internationally.
'Superb... the exciting rising star' (Time Out)
'A natural comedian' (The Stage)
'Beautifully observed and insightful... not only an entertaining story but a very funny hour of fine stand-up' (Chortle)
'Effortlessly engaging and funny as hell' (Rhod Gilbert).
