Daniel Edison is a stand-up comedian hailing from the South Coast of England. Daniel took an interest in comedy in his teenage years and began writing jokes at the age of 15.
At age 16, Daniel began performing short spots in comedy clubs around the UK. His first performance was in front of a crowd of over 200, as he was invited on-stage for an impromptu performance in the middle of a show by comedian Tim Vine. With no actual act or routine yet, Daniel managed to remember some jokes he had written and the audience roared with laughter. Newspaper ‘The Worthing Herald’ wrote a full-page article on Daniel and this experience.
Shortly after this, Daniel was invited to the very club he performed with Tim Vine at, for his first proper stand-up spot, supporting comedian Andy Kind.
From then on, Daniel never looked back, and quickly found himself in clubs and theatres, on bills with acts such as Simon Evans, Romesh Ranganathan, Paul Tonkinson and Stewart Lee, to name a few.
In 2016, Daniel reached the qualifying rounds of the BBC New Comedy Awards, which led to him performing at the Comedy Store in Manchester. His set was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra.
Daniel's style is a mixture of clever wordplay and punchy one-liners.
“Having supported Tanyalee Davis and Simon Brodkin, Daniel is a firm staple for any club, or festival of any size. Such talent at a young age! If you haven’t booked Daniel, book him now!”
