UK SUMMER TOUR 2011
KING’S THEATRE Sunday 26th June @ 8pm
Scotland’s Danny Bhoy embarks on a limited 10-date city tour of the UK on the back of his spectacular British TV debut in Live at the Apollo. He is one of the most popular and well-travelled comedians working today and until now British audiences have only had rare opportunities to see him.
Since his first solo show in a modest 60-seater venue at the Edinburgh Fringe back in 2001, Danny Bhoy’s unique brand of anecdotal humour has made him one of Scotland’s most successful worldwide Comedy exports with a huge international following.
Danny has built up a massive following everywhere he has been and has continually smashed box office records in Australia and New Zealand, as well as in his home country of Scotland. As probably the most travelled comedian working in the World today, Danny’s inimitable story-telling skills, mixed with a razor sharp wit, have been described as “effortlessly funny” by one critic, and “the stand up equivalent of Bill Bryson” by another.
On the other side of the Atlantic, his recent appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival created a stir among audiences and critics alike, with the Montreal Gazette describing him as “the stand out hit of the festival”. He was also nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Individual Comedy Performance. In 2008 he had the honour of appearing on the prestigious All Star Gala, usually reserved for veteran comics of the festival.
There are currently two live DVDs of Danny’s work available: Live at The Opera House and the recently released, Live at The Athenaeum.
Danny Bhoy’s worldwide fanbase continues to grow at a staggering pace with 2011 already proving to be another hugely successful year for this brilliant young Scot.
