“A Very Funny Guy” ~ David Walliams
“Brilliant” ~ Aleisha Dixon
“Really Silly” ~ Amanda Holden
and recently described by Jethro as “Utter Chaos”
Rob has been a semi-pro stand-up for 15 years or so, closing, opening, and middling his way around the country with a mix of beautifully written gags and truish stories, together with some audience banter.
Along the way, he’s learned life lessons such as – ‘never take a first date to watch you perform comedy’ and ‘there are no 24-hour petrol stations in rural Wales.’
He’s become increasingly grumpy and his comedy focuses on (amongst other things) politeness, getting old, and the joys of long-term relationships.
Away from stand up. he recently rowed the Atlantic, becoming a world record holder in the process, and lives on a farm in rural Leicestershire.
“Very strong and extremely funny …a naturally funny man.” Bedfordshire News.

With performances in over 16 countries, six solo shows at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, and the winner of the coveted 2013 Amused Moose Peoples Champion Award for the best show you are guaranteed to be in safe hands. A star of BT Sports DIY PUNDIT, come watch Danny Ward live, it will be an experience you’ll never forget….no matter how hard you try.
A thoroughly entertaining show lots of laughter, great stories, and amazing what you can do with spaghetti spoons.’

“Delightfully clever punchlines… He endears himself with an engaging if unusual style of language. Wordy but accessibly so, he throws in sneaky puns and well-hidden one-liners that reward the attentive listener without alienating anyone that missed them. It’s clever stuff.” – CHORTLE
