Daniel Kitson

PERRIER 2002 AWARD WINNER
TIME OUT 2002 A WARD WINNER
PERRIER 2001 A WARD NOMINEE

After an incredible 4-week sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival 2002; winning the prestigious Perrier Award, Daniel's profile has reached new heights. He bought his award winning show to Her Majesty's Theatre in October and will be taking it to London's Soho Theatre in November, before embarking on a National Tour early 2003.

"one of the greatest comedians the country has to offer" Metro

Currently one of the hottest properties on the circuit, Kitson has eschewed the standard career path favoured by fame hungry acts by refusing myriad offers to bring an objectified and compromised version of his comedy onto the TV screen in favour of taking his stand up to as many live gigs as he can, while earning acting roles in That Peter Kay Thing (Ch 4) and 'Dog Eat Dog' (Tiger Aspect/Film Four). Daniel can currently be seen in the 2nd series of Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights (Ch 4) He can also be heard on Radio 4, in shows such as Fringe Cuts (Edinburgh 2001,2002) and Loose Ends.

His unpredictable talent has established Daniel as a favourite with audiences, bookers and fellow comedians alike. Taking his rude words and jokes not only the length and breadth of the UK but also as far a field as South Africa, Holland, Singapore and Melbourne his performance has evolved alongside his status. His uniquely profane yet playful brand of improvisation that moved him into the top clubs at an unprecedented rate remains, yet is now coupled with an insightfully intelligent world view.
