Daniel Connell could easily be described as the ideal Aussie comedian; affable, lovable and hilarious. His observational, dry, often unanticipated comedy has seen him take to stages all over the country.



Daniel first launched himself into the comedy world in the 2009 emerging comedian competition ‘Green Faces’, winning the Canberra heat and placing third in the national final.



Daniel became a regular on the Canberra scene, performing in comedy-loving venues like the Civic Pub Comedy Club and The Phoenix Pub and became a regular on the 96.7 Queanbeyan FM Friday Night Sports Show.



Driven to further his career in comedy, Daniel moved to Melbourne in 2010 and quickly established himself in the local scene. In 2011 he performed in ‘The Comedy Zone’ at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, a line up show of up and coming Australian comedians hand picked by the festival.



Since then Daniel has performed a brand new hour of stand-up at 6 consecutive Melbourne International Comedy Festivals. At the 2017 MICF Daniel made his debut on the Oxfam Gala (ABC) and was also selected to go on tour around Australia and Asia with the MICF Roadshow.



One of the most active comedians in the country, Daniel can be seen sharing a stage with comedians such as Dave Hughes, Anne Edmonds and Tommy Little.
