About Dan Antopolski: Return of The Dan Antopolski

This August, triple Perrier Award nominee Dan Antopolski returns to stand-up, seven years after his seventh solo show. Okay, sevens; so what? I’ll tell you so what! Science has it that all the cells in your body regenerate over seven years so technically this is a completely new dude, reluctantly eligible for Best Newcomer. Do you believe in Chakras? Dan doesn’t, but he is aware that seven years is a cycle or something. Anyway, who has time to pay attention to spiritual change when the external changes are so colourful? Separation, death, inheritance, falling in love and watching his kids grow in height and cunning. These are Dan’s experiences and he’d love to share them with you. So here he is, with a brand new hour about change, pain, honour and gain. Oh, and “dozens and dozens of well-honed jokes”, which is also important.

After winning the BBC New Comedy Award in 1998, a Perrier Best Newcomer nomination in 2000 and in the same year a Best Show nomination for the sketch show Lee Mack's New Bits with Lee Mack and Catherine Tate, Dan received another Perrier Best Show Award nomination for his stand-up in 2001. He went on to perform in Melbourne, Montreal, Singapore, New York and Runcorn and continued to establish himself as an Edinburgh favourite. In 2011, Dan founded the critically acclaimed sketch troupe Jigsaw alongside Tom Craine and Nat Luurtsema and they enjoyed three sell-out years at Edinburgh. 2017 will be his fifteenth Edinburgh Festival and marks the twentieth anniversary of his stand-up career.

Dan’s many radio appearances include two series of Jigsaw (Radio 4), The Dan Antopolski Radio Show (Radio 2), Flight Of The Conchords (Radio 4), Out To Lunch (Radio 2), Quote Unquote (Radio 4), Life: An Idiot’s Guide (Radio 4), This Is My Mark (Radio 4), Tim Minchin's 'Strings' (Radio 4), The Simon Day Show (Radio 4), In And Out Of The Kitchen (Radio 4), Exterminating Angels (Radio 4) and The 99p Challenge (Radio 4).

On TV, Dan has appeared as a stand-up, presenter and actor on shows including The Standup Show (BBC1), Comedy Nation (BBC2), Hyperdrive (BBC2), Head Farm (Channel 4), Time Gentlemen Please (Sky One), The Live Floor Show (BBC2), The World Stands Up (Comedy Central) and The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC). With Jigsaw, Dan was a series regular on Live At The Electric (BBC3) and younger viewers know Dan as the host of CBBC’s The Dare Devil. If you are polite, he will make a phone video for your kids. If not, not.

Cinemagoers have seen Dan in the cult film It's All Gone Pete Tong. He also played Jesus in Ron Howard’s The Da Vinci Code and will appear in Paddington 2 in 2017.
