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).
Danny McLoughlin tour dates
Daliso is a versatile African comedian equally comfortable talking politics, romance, filth or religion. As such, he has performed in such diverse venues as churches, casinos, strip clubs and sports bars and was a finalist on Britain's Got Talent 2017. He has lived in countries where the press is not allowed to criticize the government, and in others with no libel laws where they can say anything. He has been both a journalist and a jaded newsreader.
Daliso has appeared at many festivals that have included Melbourne, Edinburgh, Singapore and Cape Town Festivals. He is also a prolific fiction writer and has had his science fiction, murder mysteries and fantasy fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He also co-wrote a play that aired on BBC Radio 4.
'Full of extravagant gestures and impassioned speeches. He inspires whoops and cheers from his watchers. Highly recommended' (BBC)
'A joy to listen to. Provocative, poignant and ultimately hilarious' (The Guardian)
'I laughed so much I thought I'd pass out!' (The List)
'It takes a special kind of act to work on both sides of the Atlantic (as well as across Africa), but it seems an easy transition as he compels the crowd with his racial and socially insightful comedy' (News and Star, Carlisle)
'Absolutely [took] the roof off the place. Brilliant, brilliant act' (The Frog and Bucket).

In 2001 he joined the UK comedy circuit where now tops the bill at Jongleurs, The Comedy Club, The Glee Club & The Banana Comedy Club. He has also performed for British troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dipping his toe into an acting career, Phil had a cameo role in BBC's 'Hotel Babylon' and a TV ad for the AA. 'Phil Butler's got it all.. unique, original & hilarious' (The Stage & Television Today); '...one of the most exciting & original finds in comedy in recent years' (The Guardian).
