Danny Bhoy began stand up in 1998. A year later, he won The Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, Britain’s biggest competition for comedy newcomers. In 2001, he took his first full length solo show to the Edinburgh Festival, where, within a week, he had sold out his entire three-week run. Since 2003, Danny has made annual appearances at all the major comedy festivals around the world. His first solo show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival was described as a “stunning debut by one of the finest observational comics around.” In 2005, Danny was invited to take part in the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, where he received rave reviews for his barnstorming set on the televised Gala, leading the Montreal Gazette to describe him as “the stand out hit of the festival” and was nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Individual Comedy Performance that year. In November 2005, Danny was also invited to take part in the inaugural Las Vegas Comedy Festival alongside some of the biggest names in comedy including Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock. In June 2008, Danny started his major tour of the UK and a return to the Edinburgh Festival for his 8th solo show. 2009 brought Danny to the first annual Chicago Comedy Festival, a return to Toronto for a sold out run at their Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and the Montreal Comedy Festival, where Danny taped his premiere Comedy Central One Hour Special. Danny is now touring the United States and Canada.
