With the confidence and swagger that you might expect of a North-West comedian at the very top of his game, Danny Deegan (yes another Danny!) is a comedian, writer and actor who has become a regular at most of the major comedy clubs in the UK since he began performing in 2003.
Danny’s tales of mischief and the characters he creates have kept audiences all over the country enthralled as he weaves in and out of the people he has met traveling. His talent and likability coupled with his confidence make him one of the most popular acts in the North, a master at dealing with a tough crowd, and an act that promoters always turn to when booking gigs. Danny is a seasoned headliner and MC, and was a smash hit as the headline set for Green Man festival in South Wales wiht 400 people in the comedy tent going wild. Then Danny was asked to wrap up for Manchester band “The Doves” after their headline set in front of 12,000 people.
Away from live work, Danny has made several radio appearances:, from being a guest on Radio GMR to having his own show “Afternoons with Danny Deegan” on CAT FM in Crewe, whilst his TV credits include appearances on “Made in the North” and “The Adam and Shelley Show” to name but two.
Danny has also provided tour support for Chris Ramsey, Mick Foley, Dave Spikey & Paul Sinha as well as performing in Switzerland.
