The Daniel Townes Podcast Patreon

I’ve set up a Patreon for the Daniel Townes Podcast and my comedy.

If you don’t know what Patreon is, it is a personal support line for my stand-up comedy, The Daniel Townes Podcast, live show recordings, and other special events. I’m aiming for this to become the one-stop place for everything new and exciting that I’m working on and other things I’d like to do.

By supporting me, you will receive two monthly exclusive episodes of the show in audio and video formats. You will also receive the highest quality copies of my two full-length stand-up comedy specials: “Previously” and “Crash & Burn”.

You will be directly contributing to the production costs of the podcast and all other content that I plan to make for the page to help it grow. Because of this, I (will be) work(ing) for you, the people who like my comedy and are happy to support me while I create it.

Everything that comes from your support will be put back into my stand-up comedy and content creation, which will lead to even more cool stuff for the page as it grows.

One of my first goals is to buy an audio interface with more than two inputs. I plan to have the Patreon exclusive episodes as a big fun party type vibe. I have many more goals, but I’m also good at not getting ahead of myself.

I appreciate your support.

Let’s go.

Oh and if you want to check out some classics or the latest episodes of The Daniel Townes Podcast you can do that here.

New Episodes – The Daniel Townes Podcast

I’ve been recording new episodes of The Daniel Townes Podcast. They are available now at the links below.

I missed a payment with the hosting service during COVID and the 108 original episodes were taken down. I am uploading 2 of them per week alongside the new episodes.

If you’ve listened to the pod before you know what it is about, if you haven’t I catch up with my peers and it is a very casual/conversational show. It goes wherever the conversation takes us, resulting in an intimate, often ridiculous, and sometimes dark show covering a wide variety of topics ranging from serious things like drug addiction and alcoholism to fun topics like favourite types of junk food and egging.

You can listen on Spotify here

Apple Podcasts has new episodes of The Daniel Townes Podcast here.

Or just type the name into whatever podcast app you use, it is on there. I’ve gotta say this has changed a lot since when I first started the pod back in 2013. All I had to do then was submit the RSS feed to Apple, now there are so many different services. Anyway that bit was just for me.

While you’re here you can check out my other podcast Stream Roulette here.

Sydney Comedy Festival 2022

Sydney Comedy Festival 2022 is nearly upon us and I, Daniel Townes am back with a brand new show.

It’s about some of the bigger things things that have happened during my life through the pandemic, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the pandemic, that was just in the background while all of this other stuff was going on.

My show is on in May at the Factory Theatre, you can check all of the important ticket information here.

I’ve been working my butt off on this one so I’ve given it the name Grinding, as per most of my live show names it doesn’t mean too much, I just like the word.

Anyways, I hope to see you there.

If you can’t make it down down to Sydney Comedy Festival 2022 but are still keen to check out what I’ve been up to you can have a listen to my new podcast Stream Roulette here.

(And honestly this sentence is just here coz the SEO plugin is telling me there isn’t enough words on this post, so this is just to drag it out and have enough content. If it was up to me the length of a post wouldn’t affect SEO and I would be able to keep these shorter and not sound like I’m crowbarring keywords into the copy.)

Have a great day!
