His new show features 46 tape decks through which a silent Daniel projects a pre-recorded multi strand narrative. All of the work is created by himself and his skills in manipulating these old-tech dinosaurs showcase his multi-tasking abilities: as technician, writer, director and performer.

His unique flavour and perceptive comedic flair have earned him a huge fan base with a plethora of sold out gigs under his belt. Throughout his career he has shied from the spotlight, shunning interviews and tv performances, but this has not curtailed his rise to fame. His genre-defying work encompassing stand-up and one-person theatre performances earned him the Perrier Award in 2002.

Daniel completed a BA drama degree from the Department of Drama, Theatre and Performance prior to his stand-up career. His show Analog.Ue runs in the National Theatre from 17–20 March.
