Daniel Connell could easily be described as the ideal Aussie comedian; affable, loveable and hilarious. His observational, dry, often unanticipated comedy has seen him take to stages all over the country.
Daniel first launched himself into the comedy world in the 2009 emerging comedian competition ‘Green Faces’, winning the Canberra heat and placing third in the national final.
Daniel became a regular on the Canberra scene, performing in comedy-loving venues like the Civic Pub Comedy Club and The Phoenix Pub and became a regular on the 96.7 Queanbeyan FM Friday Night Sports Show.
Driven to further his career in comedy, Daniel moved to Melbourne in 2010 and quickly established himself in the local scene. In 2011 he performed in ‘The Comedy Zone’ at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, a line up show of up and coming Australian comedians hand picked by the festival.
Since then Daniel has performed a brand new hour of stand-up at 9 consecutive Melbourne International Comedy Festivals. At the 2017 MICF Daniel made his debut on the Oxfam Gala (ABC) and was also selected to go on tour around Australia and Asia with the MICF Roadshow.
In 2018 he took his new show ‘Bit of Shush’ to festivals all over Australia and to Edinburgh Fringe. During the 2018 MICF Daniel performed on TV for the second time on ABC’s Comedy Up Late.
In 2019 Daniel made his second appearance on the Oxfam Gala (ABC), as well as performing his new show ‘Piece of Piss’ at Perth Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Sydney Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
In 2020 Daniel took his show ‘Cheers Big Ears’ to Perth Fringe and Adelaide Fringe before a global pandemic kept him at home for the remainder of the year.
In 2021 Daniel took his new show ‘I’ve Had A Flare Up’ to every Australian festival, and on a national tour.
