    Dan is the co-creator and producer of BBC Radio 4’s highly successful ‘The Museum of Curiosity’, which started in 2008 and is now in its 6th series. Hosted by Blackadder producer John Lloyd, the show has also seen Bill Bailey, Sean Lock and Jon Richardson as guest hosts.

    Over the past year, Dan also gigs on the stand-up circuit and has performed at comedy clubs such as Glee, Outside The Box and Crack Comedy and has even supported ‘FolkFace’ on their UK tour, the comedy folk band formed by Dave and Dom from Chris Moyle’s Radio1 breakfast show.
