International Australian comedian Daniel Townes first hit the Sydney comedy scene with his acerbic, intelligent, and laid-back stand-up style in 2003, and quickly made his mark as one of the country’s best live acts and most sought after comedians. His live performances are packed with killer one-liners, insightful social commentary, and dark and hilarious personal stories.
Constantly in demand, he’s performed at the prestigious invite-only Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, and won over audiences worldwide with his dry wit, disarming delivery, and cheeky smile: headlining and hosting at comedy clubs throughout Australia, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Spain, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, The Netherlands, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Doha.
Daniel is a regular feature at comedy and fringe festivals around the globe, and has performed a new show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival every year since 2005 – with successful seasons also at Adelaide Fringe, Perth International Comedy Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Sydney Comedy Festival, where in 2011 he was nominated for Time Out Magazines Sydney’s Best Comedian Award, and the Peoples Choice Award. He’s toured Australia wide with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow since 2007, and hosted the Hong Kong and Singapore tours in 2013.
He was recently featured in the Buzzfeed list of the funniest comedians to follow on Twitter, and because he likes a challenge, in 2014 he performed at Malmsbury Juvenile Detention Centre just outside of Melbourne.

“It takes real talent to summarize all our shortcomings as a society and still entertain an audience. Luckily, Daniel Townes is a very talented comedian.” – The Music 2015
“A stand-up’s stand-up, he eschews contrived themes and narrative for an hour dense with jokes, searing observation and the odd deliberate groaner. His rapid-fire delivery means you probably get more gags per minute than from any other comic at the Fringe.” – ripitup.com.au
“A breath of fresh air” – Rolling Stone Magazine
“Special mention to Daniel Townes’ laid-back, one-liner comedy for making stand-up look so easy, anyone can do it, right?” – The Music 2016

“Daniel Townes is charming and disarming as much as he is humorous. The trick is to have a whip-crack laugh at the end of the joke, and Townes shows his professionalism by slipping in that ripper almost without ceremony. With any luck he’ll become a regular at future festivals.” -Adelaide Advertiser
