Daniels is com­ing to Dum­fries

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE TICKET -

The Martin Daniels Com­edy Show is set to thrill au­di­ences at Dum­fries The­atre Royal.

Ma­gi­cian, co­me­dian and writer, Martin, is hailed as a “spec­tac­u­lar stage and screen per­former, cap­ti­vat­ing au­di­ences with his up­roar­i­ous sense of hu­mour, charm­ing per­son­al­ity and con­sum­mate mag­i­cal skill.”

The son of leg­endary TV ma­gi­cian Paul Daniels, Martin har­boured am­bi­tions to be­come a per­former from a young age and took the plunge into show­busi­ness aged 17 with a sum­mer sea­son in Newquay.

He was thrust into the lime­light pre­sent­ing one of Bri­tain’s big­gest TV pro­grammes of the 1980s, Game for a Laugh.

He went on to host ITV game show, Lingo and be­came a pre­sen­ter on CITV. Next came five se­ries on the BBC’s BAFTA nom­i­nated Les Den­nis’ Laugh­ter Show.

The stage has al­ways been a sec­ond home to Martin and he has toured with per­form­ers of the cal­i­bre of Jane McDon­ald, Lenny Henry, Les Den­nis and MC Ham­mer, as well as mak­ing five ap­pear­ances on The Royal Va­ri­ety Per­for­mance.

One of his big­gest ap­pear­ances to date was tak­ing part in the VE Day Concert in Hyde Park at­tended by the Queen and Prince Philip, plus an au­di­ence of 150,000 oth­ers.

Martin’s unique blend of magic and com­edy has proven in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar with au­di­ences across the UK and he will be at the The­atre Royal on Septem­ber 29.
