Daniel Nils Roberts
Daniel Nils Roberts is a comedian, actor and improviser, and is part of two of the UK’s most successful improvised comedy groups – Racing Minds and Austentatious – with whom he has variously recorded an original series for Audible, starred in BBC Radio 4’s first improvised show in 5 years, masterminded a hit podcast with over half a million SoundCloud followers, and conquered London’s glittering West End.
His first two wildly inventive solo comedy shows gathered rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and were both nominated for ‘Best Comedy’ at Fringe World in Perth, Australia. Gag-packed flights of fancy combine with hilariously surprising PowerPoint visuals, for a unique brand of quick-fire absurdism that is “so funny that it seems like Roberts is just showing off” (Broadway Baby).
His third solo show, The History of the World in 1 Hour debuted at Perth Fringe World in 2019 before heading to Leicester Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe, Buxton Fringe and the Edinburgh Fringe.
