Stages – short film

I’m starring (yes, properly the lead) in a short film backed by Creative England. It’s a very funny short about a stand-up comic (such a stretch) who has an itchy privates (again, it’s well within my personal experience). They’re looking for additional funding so please do back this project. I give you so much for free, why not chuck a few quid towards this?

Edinburgh Fringe 2015

So I’m doing a show

Danielle Ward: Dani Frankenstein

12.30pm at The Voodoo Rooms (8th – 30th)

Plus I’ll be doing extra shows for people who think 12.30pm is a stupid time for saucy hip hop.

8.25pm at Cannons Gait (12th/19th/26th)

9.30pm at Speakeasy (17th only)

The main reason for this post is so I don’t forget about the extra gigs. My handwriting is terrible and if I put them in my diary I’ll only get the details wrong.

NB all of these shows are FREE. Bring the world.

Dilemma starts 6th April

So the new series of Dilemma starts on 6th April at 6.30pm on Radio 4. Yes, it is a Monday. Yes, that is the slot usually preserved for sexy old duffer panel shows. Well done Team Dilemma. We’ve got some really excellent guests on this series including Jessica Hynes, Matthew Parris, Michael Legge (you might know of him) and Sarah Millican. And loads more.

This Comedian

Ultra talented photographer and comedy good egg Idil Sukan has a free exhibition on at Embassy Tea Rooms in Southwark. It’s a collection of photos of comedians she’s taken over the past seven years. If you like Bridget Christie you especially love it as there are loads of her.  My favourites are Tim Vine as Plastic Elvis, Katherine Ryan (who looks fucking incredible – just like in real life) and Shirley and Shirley. You can buy them if you want a big picture of a comedian on your living room wall.

Oh and if you’re a Karaoke Circus fan there are live shots of Tim Vine, Phil Jupitus, Danny John Jules (the CAT!!!) Isy Suttie & some dick who plays the bass guitar. And your are KC badges for sale as Idil did the design for those.

Here are details.

Hoxton FM

I should clearly have put this up earlier, but yesterday I made an appearance on Hoxton FM to do some Dani F songs. But the interview as myself. Yes. I am a chameleon. It’s probably listenable againable.

Do The Right Thing now on sale

Tickets for the new series of Do The Right Thing have gone on sale. We’re doing 5 shows between now and August and I expect that’ll be it for the whole year. Also I’m pretty sure I can’t make one of them, so who the hell is going to host is anyone’s guess. Love you bye.
