Writer & Creator

According to Wikipedia, Daniel is a “British comedy actor, playwright and director with two Olivier nominations and a Blue Peter Badge”. Graduating from Bretton Hall, Daniel is probably best known for being one half of the comedy double act “Dan and Jeff”, renowned across the globe for their “Potted” stage shows as well as an 18-month residence in the CBBC office as their in-house presenters.

With four “Potted” shows now under his belt (Potted Potter, Potted Pirates, Potted Panto and Potted Sherlock), he has received both audience and critical acclaim, having had sell-out seasons in both London’s West End and New York, and completed several successful international tours including an on-going residency for Potted Potter in Las Vegas (in its fifth year) where it won the Best of Las Vegas award for “Best New Production”.

He co-wrote and co-directed acclaimed children’s show The Pirate, The Princess and The Platypus (Polka Theatre) in 2022. He also wrote (and latterly directed) The Crown Live – a comic parody of the Netflix series The Crown – which opened in London in 2019 and more recently toured the US.

Daniel has made regular appearances on BBC, ITV and Channel 4 – writing, performing and directing his unique brand of condensed comedy, and over lockdown he co-wrote and performed ‘Judge Smudge’ in Monster Court (BBC) filming the entire series in his dining room!
