Danny grew up in Moffat, Scotland, as one of four children, and attended Moffat Academy and all-boys public school Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh. His humour is observational, often involving his own personal experiences as an international comedian. He began stand up in 1998 after going to see his first comedy show at the Edinburgh Festival. A year later, he won The Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, Britain's biggest competition for comedy newcomers. Recorded live in Montreal, this DVD features the full-length show from his Comedy Central Special.
