Daniel Oldaker a Physical Comedian has a Diploma in New Circus and trained with world-class physical comedy mentors including Sascha Baron Cohen's mentor Philippe Gualier.
Daniel has toured to over 20 countries in the past 15 years presenting one man, duo and ensemble physical comedy shows winning awards including the Busan International Comedy Festivals best International Act in 2013 with his show "Dandyman". He also was nominated for the Just For Laughs best International Act at the Montreal Fringe Festival received Patrons Pick in Winnipeg Fringe Festival along with 5 star reviews and sold out houses on many occasions at Melbourne Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Brisbane Arts Festival, Wonderland Festival (Brisbane Powerhouse) and on an Arts Victorian funded tour of 14 Victorian regional towns in 2014.
His shows are primarily physical comedy based spliced with circus elements that break the 4th wall, defy conventional theatrical methods and leave audiences with a feeling of "that show was just for us" due to his attention to creating improvisational magical mayhem in many of the shows.
Daniel has achieved perhaps the highest accolade an artist can expect; he is a 'performer's performer', not only a source of entertainment for the audience, but a true inspiration to his peers. Daniel sets extremely high standards of originality and innovation, which enrich all who see him perform the unique, circus-inspired, "Bell Boy", the frighteningly funny "Live Flavor" or his delightfully absurd theatre show "Dandyman" or hamming it up as MC for 'Acts of Absurdity' and other events and variety shows.
