Comedian available for hire, based in Victoria


Armed with just a pocket full of drinking straws, DANDYMAN fills the stage with characters, landscapes, and wild adventures. Rediscover the joy of playfulness as DANDYMAN sweeps you up in this invigorating and crazy world.

DANDYMAN is a journey of peculiar proportions. A poignant story about waiting, about tested patience, and the way we interact with a changing world. DANDYMAN is the creation of Daniel Oldaker. A true original, Oldaker draws on comedy, absurd acrobatics, top-notch circus skills, and magic, and blends them into something entirely fresh and a little bit chaotic.

"Daniel Oldaker maximizes the subtlety of live performance, often using little more than his eyebrows to get huge laughs from the audience" ***** CBC Manitoba - Sarah Michaelson

"Oldaker is a master of object manipulation" ****1/2 Herald Sun - Stephanie Glickman

"…withdrawing the predictability to offer a genuinely unique Festival experience" The Pun - Jonathan Rivett
