Profile: Daniel Townes

Newcastle Live -


Since The Sydney Comedy Festival showcase will be rolling into the Civic Theatre on Friday 5th September we thought we would profile some of the comedians on the bill. To kick things off we’re taking a look at the career of Daniel Townes.

Since emerging on the scene almost a decade ago as one of Australia’s hottest comedy prospects, Daniel Townes has rapidly made his name as one of the country’s best live comedians and one of the most sought after acts on the private performance scene.

With his laidback style of stand-up, Townes has won over audiences worldwide, having performed in Singapore, Germany, Spain, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, Holland, and all over the UK. In Australia, he’s worked everywhere from Mildura to Broken Hill and Griffith to Wodonga.

As well as being a regular at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Sydney Comedy Festival, Townes has also performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the prestigious invite-only Just for Laughs
Comedy Festival in Montreal, the latter kudos aspired to by the whole industry.
