Dan Atkinson is a prolific comedian and comedy writer. Having cut his teeth on the UK live circuit over the past ten years, he is a natural compere and exciting live act. His reputation as an intelligent, big-hearted comic is well deserved.
His exciting debut Edinburgh show in 2007 ‘Knows he Knows Nothing’ reeled the audiences in and this was followed up in 2008 with ‘The Credit Crunch and other Biscuits’ which played to top reviews and total sell-out crowds for the entire festival run. He is a regular fixture at the festival as the host of the anarchic yet cerebral Comedian’s Countdown.
He performed on the prestigious Edinburgh & Beyond live tour in 2008. He has also been invited to perform at Political Animal, Book Club, The School for Gifted Children as well as being resident Sunday compere at London’s famous Up The Creek club.
Dan is also a regular fixture at the summer festivals and has entertained the muddy hordes at Latitude, Carling Leeds, Godiva and Guilfest.
Dan has been employed as a warm-up artist for prime-time comedy TV shows including Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Bremner, Bird & Fortune and The Late Edition.
Radio and TV credits include: The Richard Bacon Show (BBC 5 Live), The Jon Richardson Show (BBC 6 Music), Law of the Playground (C4) and Bodyhits (BBC3).
