Since his first solo show in a modest 60-seater at the Edinburgh Fringe back in 2001, Danny Bhoy's star has continued to rise. His 8th solo show at the Fringe last year to packed-out houses in one of the biggest venues in town, tells only a small part of the incredible journey this young Scottish comic has taken.
In just a short few years, Danny has built up a massive following everywhere he has been. He has continually smashed his own box office records in Australia and New Zealand as well as in his home country of Scotland. As probably the most travelled comedian working in the World today, Danny's unique brand of story-telling and razor sharp wit has been described as "effortlessly funny" by one critic, and "the stand up equivalent of Bill Bryson" by another.
On the other side of the Atlantic, his recent appearances at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival have created a stir among audiences and critics alike with the Montreal Gazette describing him as "the stand out hit of the festival" in the same year he was also nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Individual Comedy Performance. In 2008 he had the honour of appearing on the prestigious All Star Gala, usually reserved for veteran comics of the festival. After unprecedented sell-out theatre runs in Montreal and Toronto this year, Danny is currently preparing for a solo tour of Canada early next year.
After the huge success of his first DVD 'Live at The Opera House', Danny has just released his 2nd DVD 'Live at the Athenaeum' which features more hilarious yarns from this most gifted of performers. In July 2009, he also recorded a highly prestigious 1-hour Comedy Central Special. The special will be aired in the US early next year. Danny moved to LA in August 2009 in preparation for an extensive tour of the US and Canada to coincide with the release of the Special (which will also be released on DVD.) Danny Bhoy's worldwide fanbase continues to grow at a staggering pace. 2010 promises to be another busy year for the brilliant young Scot.
