Testimonials

Daniel’s laconic poise had the crowd in stitches and the laughs just kept going the whole time. The crowd really got going listening to his endless hilarity and outrageously funny stories. A real good time was had by all as Daniel had us corporate’s rolling and holding our bellies from the pain of laughter.

Holding the attention of almost 200 guests who had spent an entire day in a strategy session, is a big ask. However, Daniel managed to do it with ease. My (corporate) client was delighted with the performance. Daniel was able to lift the energy levels of the group and create a memorable occasion.

Entertaining 70 guests between the age of 19 and 65 in Financial Services was always going to be a challenge. Along came Daniel and to everyone’s surprise he had us all in stitches! Daniel was great fun. He gave our Christmas party the laughter it needed!

Daniel was the perfect comedian for our Sportsman’s Luncheon. His witty one liners and storytelling yarns had the crowd in raptures. We will definitely get Daniel to perform back to perform in the future.

Entertaining our group of lawyers is always a challenge but Daniel managed to break through the barrier by being absolutely hilarious! The audience was thoroughly entertained!

It gives me great pleasure to provide a testimonial for Mr. Daniel Townes. Daniel was the entertainment for our annual delegates conference at the NSW Parliament House on December 11th 2012. As well as the delegates, politicians and senior advisors also attended the conference and all of the material he presented was appropriate and extremely funny. Daniel fulfilled all of our needs and was extremely professional and very funny. I would have no hesitation in recommending Daniel to any other corporate clients.

A stand-up’s stand-up, he eschews contrived themes and narrative for an hour dense with jokes, searing observation and the odd deliberate groaner. His rapid-fire delivery means you probably get more gags per minute than from any other comic at the Fringe.

Special mention to Daniel Townes’ laid-back, one-liner comedy for making stand-up look so easy, anyone can do it, right?
The Music 2016

Dazzlingly funny.
Herald Sun 2015

This highly personal and honest reflection is a touching journey interspersed with topmark laughs, clever call backs and acerbic social commentary.
Herald Sun 2014

Disarmingly frank and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a show I would recommend highly.
Squirrel Comedy 2014

Townes shows his years of experience as a performer in knowing how and when to throw in the one-liners, non-sequiturs, dad-jokes and call backs
Arts Hub Perth

Daniel Townes is a fine example of interesting, intelligent and hilarious stand up.

There wasn’t one joke from Townes that didn’t receive a massive response.
Midwest Times

Daniel Townes is a small-name comedian with a big talent. It feels like you’re sitting down with a mate, discussing the ridiculousness of life. Townes is genuinely funny, I highly recommend him to anyone tired of seeing big names coast on their reputations.

It takes real talent to summarise all our shortcomings as a society and still entertain an audience. Luckily, Daniel Townes is a very talented comedian.
