“Edwin Sammon was the find of the night…deploying some perfectly described imagery…which should offer something for everyone”. Chortle
Danny Ward’s observational humour is up-beat and well honed, and his easy-going style both endearing and very funny. One of the new breed of comics with a high energy set not reliant on smut or swearing, Danny has since established himself as comic to watch.
“If there is better stand-up elsewhere for free then I want to know about it, because it really would have to be world class to top this show. Danny Ward’s observational humour is brilliantly delivered … This is top quality stand up that should have filled the venue twice over. I implore you to go and see it!” Three Weeks
“Danny Ward clicked with the capacity crowd immediately and his brilliantly-timed, slightly manic approach was bolstered by some really tight, strong material. His often hilarious riffs on everyday shopping at discount stores created a thread that worked brilliantly throughout, with a killer ending”. Bournemouth Echo
