Dan is an actor, comedian, writer and director. He has a Masters in French from Oxford University before he trained at drama school in London.
Dan’s had a busy 2018. He has just finished a run at the wonderful Mill at Sonning Theatre as cheeky Irishman, Shaun, in ‘A Night In Provence’ directed by the brilliant Keith Myers.
You may have heard him in Big Finish's 'Dr Who - Lure Of The Nomad' or 'Blake's 7 - Ministry Of Truth'.
You may have seen him as the seemingly lovely (but actually creepy) factory boss, Hugh, in ‘Doctors’ (BBC), or as haughty French waiter, Jean, in Johnny English Strikes Back with Rowan Atkinson (finally using his French degree!).
Or most likely you’ve seen him in a towel in the latest Purple Bricks advert…for which he can only apologise.
HOT OFF THE PRESS:
It has just been confirmed that the comedy play “Instructions For American Servicemen” (which Dan co-wrote and stars in) will be opening Off-Broadway on 15th April 2019…so plenty of time to book tickets.
Other TV work includes: guest star roles in major award winning UK sitcoms including "Miranda" (BBC), the BAFTA winning "Spy" (SKY1), "The Royal Bodyguard" (BBC) & "Pramface" (BBC) as well as Sketch Comedy shows "Well Funny People" (BBC), "In Case You Missed It" (BBC) and "Fool Britannia" (ITV).
He has been a recurring guest star in "EastEnders" and guest starred in "Casualty", "Down To Earth" and "Doctors" - four of the longest running and most popular soap operas in the UK.
He also played Martin (Recurring Guest Star) in two series of the hugely popular and award-winning BBC TV show "So Awkward”.
Other film roles include Detective Inspector Evans - supporting lead - in "Candlestick" (Workbus Films) and Sonny's father in 'Molly Moon - The Incredible Hypnotist".
Dan has appeared in dozens of commercials - recently as a distracted lawyer for "McDonald's", a clumsy dad for "Direct Line Insurance" and a cheeky boss for "Weetabix".
Live performance: He has performed stand-up comedy in the UK and USA, ten years at the Edinburgh Fringe including two self-penned solo shows "My Myspace Baby" ( ‘brilliantly witty…hilarious caricatures’ Daily Telegraph; ‘a beguiling show, 4*’, Evening Standard) and "Goldrunner" (5* Myspace Comedy), three sketch shows and improv shows. Countless theatre shows including the award-nominated "Lovepuke" (Stage Best Ensemble Award) and the recent sell-out, critically acclaimed UK Tour and Off-West End run of "Instructions for American Servicemen" - which he co-wrote with his sketch group The Real MacGuffins (UK New Sketch Act of the Year Finalists).
