Award-winning comedian and writer Daniel Audritt brings his first solo show to the fringe, asking 'what really makes us good or bad people?' Having previously had jokes on shows like 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Mock The Week, Comedy Central's Roast Battle, Comic Relief, the News Quiz, Dead Ringers, NewsJack and many more, the show will be punchline heavy stand up comedy that hopefully will make you think twice.


News and Reviews for this Show

August 21, 2018  Bunbury Magazine
Daniel Audritt is a comedian with a refreshingly sharp and quick-witted mind presenting an hour of rapid-fire jokes on the subject of falling – or jumping – in love. He cuts an incredible charming and likeable figure on the stage, dotting his set with audience interactions that never makes those members feel uncomfortable. It helps bring the crowd into Daniel’s world of often sideways and dark glances at the subject of love.

He is a comedian with a clear pedigree of writing well-crafted jokes, with a clarity and confidence of delivery that is at the height of the profession – even with jokes that he self-admittedly only wrote that morning, making this even more impressive.

Inevitably, a show about falling in love and all the foibles around it – Daniel is trying to be a better person for his new partner – there are lots of jokes about sex which are presented in a very accessible way and never strays into uncomfortable territory. His comedic talents also turn very well to fantastic word play and the flipping of the tropes and convention associated with love.

This show is a fantastic way to start the day at the Fringe, a highly enjoyable and hilarious hour of comedy that needs to be seen. Click Here

August 14, 2018  The List
Achieving his best self as well as the finest comic he can be.

What does it mean to be good these days? Daniel Audritt is working hard on being a better person, but is the title actually just a hint that he would far rather prefer to be a superior comedian? In a perfect world, of course, both goals could be achieved. He may be in rush to have kids of his own, but Audritt revels in his distancing role of godparent, which provides plenty glory with barely any of the responsibility.

OK, so far, so not so good. Then he recalls the time he was on the London underground and took evasive action to save himself in an incident which showed that once paranoia takes hold, anyone could think and act like an actual racist.

So, there's not much evidence to be seen here that Audritt is hitting the heights as a human being: what of his comedy? A clear fascination with language exists in his bones, as proven by an opening gambit about the words we use to describe the process of feeling love which seem to run contrary to that emotion. A rather hackneyed analysis of the negative aspects in the Disney canon lets Audritt down temporarily but he soon rallies with a gag about meat and veganism that's a neat bit of wordplay rather than an assault on either of those parties. Now, there's a good boy. Click Here
