2020 Festival Shows Cancelled

My 2020 Comedy Festival shows have been cancelled due to Corona. That’s Sydney, Canberra, and Perth. Community health is way more important than comedy.

All ticket holders will be contacted about refunds. I’ll do the show at a later date when things are back to normal.

In the meantime if you’re looking for some comedy you can watch both of the full length shows I’ve recorded over at YouTube

They’re also both for sale at a much higher quality here.

For the people who aren’t coping with isolation here’s a few tips to help your sanity. Pick the path that suits you:

Eat healthy
Stimulate your brain – puzzles, strategy games, reading
Get a dog


Turn your brain off – weed, booze, benzos, a shotgun to the face.

Obviously don’t blow your face off with a shotgun. Stay safe and healthy and I’ll see you on the other side of this madness.

Crash and Burn Clips

Here’s a few short clips from Daniel Townes – Crash & Burn, my latest full-length stand up comedy recording. All of the clips have burnt in captions too if that’s your thing.

I’ll add more clips to this post once I cut up some more short ones.

(Google SEO time) – that’s more short videos, footage, and Crash and Burn clips from Daniel Townes, the second full-length stand up comedy recording which was filmed live at the The Comedy Store in Sydney.

Just quickly, this SEO thing is fucking ridiculous. I want these posts short, and I have to hit a certain character limit just for them to get ranked.

Anyway, that’s enough apparently, so if you like the short clips I’m posting you can also watch all of Crash and Burn here. Or if you like supporting the arts you can buy it in full HD here.

There’s also a combo available which includes my first recording, Previously.

If you’d rather watch this footage square, with a heading, and on your phone I’ve also been sharing them over on my Instagram and my Facebook page.

Anyway, back to the point and the short Crash and Burn clips, the first one is about kissing a smoker:

The next one is about stretcher earrings:

Canberra Comedy Festival 2020

I’m coming back to Canberra Comedy Festival for 2020. I’m doing one show on March 19th at 7pm. For google’s sake, that’s Daniel Townes Canberra Comedy Festival shows 2020. CCF Daniel Townes 2020.

The show is brand new and it’s called Little Ray of Sunshine. I’m very happy with how it has come along. I’ll also be doing the show at Perth Comedy Festival in April and Sydney Comedy Festival in May.

You can get more information and links to official ticketing sites for Canberra Comedy Festival here.

That is the end of the important information regarding the show, what follows is to hit the character count required for this web pages to register properly. SEO i’s a long and boring subject, and seeing as this is meant to be about Daniel Townes Canberra Comedy shows I’ll wrap it up soon. I think I’ve got about 50 or words left. Comedy.

I know I wouldn’t make much of a salesperson. Most people would use their 300 words to really sell their product but me, nah, I give the info as concise as possible so you can make up your mind quickly. Then I fill up the remaining space with dribble. Blame Google and SEO for that. (Daniel Townes CCF 2020)

Anyway, Daniel Townes Canberra Comedy Festival 2020 show is on in March and there is more info here.
