★★★★★ ABOUT DANNY O´BRIEN ★★★★★

Danny O' Brien - Biography

Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain - Danny was hand picked this year to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show (which has run successfully for over 20 years) and has just returned from Australia touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Danny is currently preparing for his fourth solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Danny has been performing stand-up comedy for over seven years, playing regularly at top comedy clubs and festivals to worldwide audiences, as well as being the resident host and owner of The Comedy Crunch in Dublin, Ireland's most successful comedy club. With his friendly, anecdotal style, this Irish charmer draws in an audience and brings on the big laughs with ease. He performed his first solo show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival to rave reviews and scooped the title of "Dublin's Funniest Comedian" at the prestigious Stand Up For FM104 that same year. In 2013 Danny took part in Irish TV show The RTE Comedy Awards and released his first comedy album on iTunes as part of the Irish Underground Comedy Show. He also beat sixteen of Ireland's best up-and-coming acts and take the coveted Toilet Duck Award at Tedfest (the now-famous Father Ted celebration). In 2014 Danny performed at the Edinburgh Fringe with his second solo show 'Back To The Hills!' and had a hugely successful sold-out run, returning in 2015 with 'Ah Jaysus!', performing another triumphant run to full houses followed by shows in Ireland, the UK and Europe and appearances at The Forbidden Fruit Festival, Longitude Festival, and Vodafone Comedy Festivals. 

"O' Brien took to the stage like a force of nature...one suspects it wont be too much longer before stadiums come calling” The Examiner **** 

" a perfect mix of brains, banter and brilliance!" Great Scott ****

"Instantly amiable, his easy Irish charm and repartee quickly won over the audience... it’s all done with affection and no little style. What Danny also has going for him is he's young, got a good look and he can tell a story better than most." Giggle Beats UK
