Danny – Cabaret Balloon Show
Danny invites you into the strange and bizarre universe of a wild balloon tamer where surreal, skilful and stupid things happen. Using circus skills, eccentric performance and physical comedy he gives an audience an utterly joyous experience. The show is a funny yet moving series of visual contemporary clown acts loaded with participation, surprises and laughs.
Danny has been performing in theatre, circus and street as well as TV and films for over 17 years. He has worked with The Royal Opera, Dynamic New Animations, The Natural Theatre Company, Circus Sensible and in 2005 made his West End debut in “Burlesque!” at the Arts Theatre, London. Danny has made appearances on screens including Happiness (BBC2); Jack Dee’s Sunday Service (CH4) and Danny was Homer Simpson in the “The Real Simpson’s” advert on Sky One. He has been the lead in a Norwegian film “Sniffer” which won the 2006 Palme D’or for Best Short Film at Cannes Film Festival, France.
Lighter than air is for family audiences and due to its highly visual nature, is particularly suitable for those with hearing difficulties and non-English speakers. There are many balloons in the show some of which pop and make a loud noise. The show is for children aged 5+ and their families.
Danny also has a Christmas show featuring Danny the Christmas Elf! Danny is ready to entertain both adults and children with his amazing balloon nonsense all themed around Christmas! Watch him juggle huge balloon snowballs, train Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and climb into a giant balloon bauble! The show is suitable for all events including large scale and is perfect for a varied and family based audience.

All the children in the audience voted after each show and Danny is proud to be the winner. As a physical comedian Danny has been in the short Norwegian film “Sniffer” which won many prizes including Best Short Film at the Cannes film Festival 2006. Danny was also Homer Simpson in “Come Home to the Simpsons”, an advert for Sky One, which won an industry award.

“I had the happiest little boy in the world yesterday as he walked triumphant up the Hollloway Rd with his octopus balloon. We all enjoyed your twisting at Whittington Park.”
– Holloway Arts Festival
“One of the most amazing balloon acts on the planet.”
– Bull Rodger
“Thanks to simple but effective stagecraft, a healthy dose of natural charisma and a real flair for comic timing, Danny’s show is an undoubted joy for all the family.”
– The Scotsman
“Daft physical comedy quickly proves a big hit with young folk and their parents. There are plenty of belly laughs….And it gets sillier with the performer taking a visual gag and stretching it almost to bursting point.”
– The List
“Danny’s original sketches and comic silliness are what make this show worth watching….This is simple, light-hearted entertainment that leaves the audience feeling as buoyant as any of Danny’s inflatable creations.”
– Fest Magazine
“I could watch this show again and again! A master of his material, Danny will break your heart one minute and have you chuckling the next. His delightful combination of physical comedy, expressive body, and ludicrous play will keep any audience captivated with this poignant and funny performance.”
– Windsor Arts Centre
“I’ve loved Danny since I first saw him perform his ability to fully engage an audience for one hour of wordless performance is exceptional. I found his show moving, beautiful, heart-warming and very funny, and I recommend it whole-heartedly to others. Danny has been a pleasure to work with plus he’s a very talented performer and understands the practical challenges involved in selling a show.”
– West End Centre
“I thoroughly enjoyed Danny’s show. It was a great pleasure to see a solo performer with the skills, presence and craft to enchant a sell out audience and take them on a hilarious but moving journey for an hour. Through Danny’s warmth and understanding we established an excellent working relationship. He is a professional both on and off stage.”
– Diorama Arts Centre
“You were a huge hit. Charming and poetic, and your performing is as skilful as it is silly, both full of heart and absolutely hilarious. An incredible show.”
