Comedian available for hire, based in Victoria
British Stand-Up comedian Dan Willis spent 12 years in the IT industry, working for companies such as Unisys, IBM and Coutts & Co (the Queen's bank).
In 2002 Dan won the TimeOut Competition to be a Perrier judge at the Edinburgh festival. From here, the step into comedy didn’t seem too complicated. Now, after over 3000 gigs in 15 different countries, TV appearances in the UK and Australia, Dan performs in all major comedy clubs (e.g. Melbourne Comics Lounge, Sydney Comedy Store, Jongleurs UK, Highlights UK, etc) and international festivals (in 2013: Melbourne, Adelaide and Edinburgh). At Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012, Dan performed six hour-long shows per day with no repeated material, performing to more than 6000 punters.
An experienced MC with impeccable timing and crowd work skills, Dan specialises in IT-based humour which has seen him perform sell out runs of his solo show 'Ctrl Alt Del' around the world, and 'PC, Mac and Me'. He's an avid fan of zombie movies, Michael Jackson (he knows all Jacko's moves) and Ferris Bueller and has also written solo shows about these subjects.
Dan is now permanently based in Melbourne, Australia.
