“A 100mph whirlwind….Brilliant”- The Manchester Evening News
Dan Nightingale is one of the best performers working on the comedy circuit today. Mixing fiendishly accurate observation with energetic characterisations and killer punch lines his comedy is original, playful, intelligent, exciting; sometimes ridiculous, but always hilarious.
Fresh out of University in the early Noughties, Dan started working behind the bar in a local comedy club and already the seeds for his future career were sown. He took to the stage for the first time only a few months later and found himself catapulted to the forefront of the comedy scene.
“Nightingale was a pure delight thanks to his witty observations and well-timed delivery. I was in stitches…” Gulf Weekly – Bahrain
One of stand-up’s brightest stars, a natural on stage & a total original, Dan combines cutting observation with inherent playfulness, raucous banter with beautiful surrealism, pairing great gags with heart felt ramblings. His comedy is genuine, creative, honest, unpredictable, original and above all… funny as hell.
“Fantastic…He has it in him to be another Kitson or Noble.” Metro
Having previously performed at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival with Josie Long, Dan showcased his solo debut show ‘Geronimo’ in 2008, which was extremely well received. Having enjoyed such success, Dan took his second show “The 11 and a 1/2 Ill Conceived Edinburgh Shows of Dan Nightingale,” in 2012 to widespread critical acclaim. Audiences clamoured to the Pleasance Dome to see this hilarious showcase of ‘industry-centric genre slapping’ also receiving multiple 5 and 4 star reviews from the press. His 2013 show “Love in the Time of Cholesterol” won over audiences & critics alike.
A highly respected and experienced MC or headline act, he is constantly in demand from the circuits most prestigious clubs and comedy nights. Like the jewel in a comedic crown, Nightingale adds a touch of class to any line-up.
