Daniel Townes returns with a brand new show about the current divide in our society, equality, fear-mongering, offence, Batman, and a load of other things that sound hilarious when you put the word comedy next to them.

Townes pours 16 years of experience onstage into his dry, intelligent and brilliantly relatable comedy, with a laid-back charm that makes entertaining a room full of strangers look easy. Society’s shortcomings and foibles – from the big questions of life through to the petty grievances of day to day existence, all are neatly excised by his sharp, razor-edged wit and rapid-fire delivery, guaranteeing a ferocious hit rate of punchlines-per-minute.

As seen on ABC2 Comedy Next Gen and Comedy Up Late, and the Just For Laughs Australia Stand-up Series.

“Pound for pound, one of the best Australian stand-ups going around.” - GQ Magazine

“Daniel Townes is a small-name comedian with a big talent. It feels like you’re sitting down with a mate, discussing the ridiculousness of life. Townes is genuinely funny, I highly recommend him to anyone tired of seeing big names coast on their reputations.” - The Age

“Pound for pound, one of the best Australian stand-ups going around. The fact that his name might not be familiar is entirely your fault. He is that good. It’s like spending an hour with a mate who’s funnier, warmer and more intelligent than the ones you’ve already got.” - GQ Magazine

“It takes real talent to summarise all our shortcomings as a society and still entertain an audience. Luckily, Daniel Townes is a very talented comedian.” - The Music

“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

“Special mention to Daniel Townes’ laid-back, one-liner comedy for making stand-up look so easy, anyone can do it, right?” - The Music

“Dazzlingly funny.” - Herald Sun

“Top-mark laughs, clever call-backs and acerbic social commentary.” - Herald Sun

“Daniel Townes is a fine example of interesting, intelligent and hilarious stand-up.” - rhum.org.au

“Fascinating…Freaking hilarious…You’re in absolutely safe hands with this guy.” - RTR FM Perth

“There wasn’t one joke from Townes that didn’t receive a massive response.” - Midwest Times
