Sydney Fringe Comedy: That’s all folks

Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival is over for another year so massive thanks to everyone who came out to to the new material shows at this years Fringe Comedy with Daniel Townes (me), Luke Heggie, and Alex Jae. As always it was a blast. Also big ups and massive thanks to two of my favourite Sydney comedians Luke Heggie and Alex Jae for doing this with me year in and out and making the Sydney Fringe Comedy shows my favourite part of the Sydney comedy calendar.

If you’re keen to check out what I’ve got coming up in the future keep an eye on the shows page. If you’re in Canberra, my CCF show is coming up in March and you can get more for details here.

Brisbane shows in Jan are here. I’ve also got another run of shows in Brisbane in October so I’ll post all of the information as soon as I have it.

And if you’re keen to see the pre Fringe Comedy stuff it’s right here.

Update July 2019. The three of us will be doing another Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival show this year, you can get more information on that here

In the meantime here’s a pic from last years Sydney Fringe Comedy with Daniel Townes (me), Luke Heggie, and Alex Jae just chilling at the end of our run.

Sydney Fringe Comedy 2018

Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival is back. This year I’m doing another split show with fellow comedians Alex Jae and Luke Heggie. It’s all-new material and we are going to torch that venue. If you’re coming wear appropriate clothing and bring a fire extinguisher. More info on the Daniel Townes Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival shows is available here

And here were are chilling after last years Fringe Comedy run, right here.

Update July 2019: Daniel Townes Sydney Fringe Comedy shows for 2019 are on sale now. I’m doing another triple hander with two of my favourite stand up comedians Alex Jae and Luke Heggie.

These shows are always some of my favourite gigs of the year in Australian comedy. They’re experimental, new, and the risk of us falling flat on our face is pretty damn high. Potentially falling on my face in a room full of people is one of the reasons I got in to comedy in the first place.

Once again they’re at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville. We’re doing 6 shows. Tickets are cheap. The success rate of the new material has always been very high.

There’s more information on Sydney Fringe Comedy Festival 2019 information right here.

ABC2 Comedy Next Gen

ABC2 Comedy Next Gen was an awesome experience I was part of in 2017. Huge thanks to everyone who came out for the live recording at The Comedy Store and to everyone who watched the episode of ABC2 Comedy Next Gen featuring Daniel Townes on either ABC or iView.

If you missed it I’m currently getting the full-length extended version sorted. If you click the image below it will take you to a page with more information about the Daniel Townes Comedy Next Gen process. You can also click here.

I’d say the full-length release is not more than a couple of weeks away. All of the major work is done, it’s just a bunch of back end stuff left, exporting it, uploading it, and then we’re good to go.

If you can’t wait that long I believe it is still occasionally being aired on ABC Comedy and iView. Check your TV guides or Google any upcoming air dates.

Alternatively, here’s a clip from the first show I recorded back in 2012.

There’s also another Daniel Townes ABC2 Comedy clip that was filmed as part of their Comedy Up Late series. You can check it out over on the clips page here.

Next Gen Recording Daniel Townes

Previously Comedy Special

Previously was the first full-length comedy special recorded by Daniel Townes (me) back in 2011. Just for fun there’s an old favourite joke in the clip below. I called it Previously because it was my way of moving on from the material like “hey previously on Daniel Townes, here are some jokes I used to do when I started.” It was recorded live at The Comedy Store. You can also grab all of the Daniel Townes Previously footage in full-length and glorious high definition right here.

If that’s not enough comedy for you there are short clips on the clips page here. My podcast is here.

July 2019 Update: If you’re interested in the upcoming release of my second comedy special Crash & Burn, it is coming very very soon. I’ve been saying that a lot but I had to learn a few new skills to get it finalised. All that’s left for me to do now is sign off on it, get it uploaded, and then there will be another full-length comedy special under my hat. In the meantime, you can get more information on the recording etc here.

And since you’re at the bottom of the page, here’s the homepage.
