Finalist in Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year February 2014 ( Previous winners include Johnny Vegas, Rhod Gilbert, Carl Donnelly & Matt Rees)
“Dane Baptiste promises great things – smart, slick a box full of attitude – with the talent to back it all up” – Rebecca Papworth, Executive Producer and former BBC Comedy Commissioner
“Intelligent and genuinely hilarious at the same time, a rare and delightful combination” – Adam Bloom, Comedian
Dane Baptiste doesn’t fit in. As a son of Caribbean immigrants who navigated the north/south divide before puberty, he’s had a lifetime trying to find a place in society amongst gangs, grammar schooling and strict parenting. In his anticipated debut hour, this original and provocative rising star asks: is there a place for Citizen Dane? Expect razor sharp rants and slick musings. As seen on Seann Walsh’s Comedy Spectacular (BBC3) and Live from The Comedy Store (Comedy Central). ‘A unique and engaging comic voice that has the potential to go very far indeed’ (ComedyBlogedy.com).
