Danny The Idiot

Your Expert Family Entertainer

Book a Variety Act that adds Fun in your Face Virtually and In Person

The best performance school in life is the stage.
Hi, I am Danny and for the past 30 years I have made mistakes. Huge mistakes, funny mistakes, foolish mistakes.

You name it. I have made a complete Idiot out of myself. Performing in London, then in theatres and events all over the UK, and finally landed here at East Sussex.

I now perform all over London and the South East. And even sometimes beyond! Then the disease that will not be named happened. I switched to also performing Virtually.

At first I thought people won’t recognize I am an idiot through the screen. But, I was soooo wrong!

Do you want a funny memorable show, a variety show,
a hilarous show for your event?
Of course you do.

So all you need to do next is choose a button.
How hard can that be?

Why hire a Professional Idiot

Don’t settle for an amateur Idiot

Danny the Idiot is a Professional Idiot
– a graduate from the University for Idiots.

He is the only graduate – EVER!

During the gruelling course Danny studied his idiotic education
to bring it all together into shows and events for audiences and guests.

The course covered many things like, How to be an Idiot,
Banana Skins and their Appeal, Falling up and getting down,
and his favourite, Laughter is not just a Throat Noise.

There are many different types of laughter. Danny, with
many years of knowledge and ignorance, knows these types.

After graduating and many years of performing, Danny has
distilled the knowledge of creating four solo theatre shows,
and many short original pieces has developed a theory.
He has, with his super experience, analysed, synthesised,
and pasteurised a simple diagram to illustrate this principle.

hierarchy of laughter

At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.

Jean Houston

Hang on a moment – Let me tell you how this works.

There is the basic human need to laugh. To laugh together.From belly laughs to chuckles, Danny entertains
everyone in the audience. A grown up man, an adult being a silly idiot is the best.

He enjoys the challenge of entertaining different people differently. How?

By using his finely tuned creative mind.

Using the ridiculous, the idiotic and the just plain daft

By transforming his audience from their pre-show concerns about life to having a laugh and a break.

The whole audience, from tiny tots to wrinkly white-haired grown ups, will see a hilarious show.

Audiences say after a show that they haven’t laughed so much in a long time.

And yet – each show has a different audience. Each show is unique depending on a complex set of foolish factors.
Each show is a special moment in time of family togetherness, complete nonsense and utter silliness.

That is why you should hire Danny the Idiot!

“Danny was great! Finally something different.
Danny’s terrific personality and very
entertaining performance made our event.”

Success Stories from Customers

“We loved Danny’s show, especially the fun balloon modelling and circus element. Client and guests were very happy!”

For their annual Family Picnic with
a circus theme, Hurlingham private members club were looking for a really different show mixing circus and balloons……..

Sotheby’s Auction house was open for viewing to families and required a balloon entertainer for multiple events – each time in a different space.

Danny adapted wearable balloon art compacted to avoid kids smashing valuable artworks with extended balloons. Happy kids and parents, artworks safe and happy auctioneers. A win for all!

Bannatyne’s Hotel in Hastings wanted to attract more customers and give something different at their mix of family and adult events.

Danny was engaged to create balloon art for the guests and proved very POPular! Lots of photo opportunities for social media which spread the word fast.
