Dan Antopolski exploded onto the comedy scene in 1998, winning the BBC New Comedy Award and reaching the finals of the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award and Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny. Over the next three years he was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Festival for his debut hour Second Coming and received Perrier Award Nominations for both his solo show Antopolski 2000 and for sketch show Lee Mack’s New Bits with Lee Mack and Catherine Tate.

Dan has performed extensively around the UK and Europe and at international festivals including Just For Laughs in Montreal and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. His sketch group Jigsaw were series regulars on Live at the Electric (BBC3) and made two series for Radio 4. Dan is known to younger viewers as the title character in The Dare Devil on CBBC and he played Jesus in blockbuster The Da Vinci Code. He recently appeared in Paddington 2 and Good Omens (BBC). 

"Master of the surreal and natural heir to Bill Bailey...The daftest, silliest and most uplifting show I've seen, a happy reminder of how the best comedy can leave you smiling for the rest of the evening."

The Observer

"Intelligent, thoughtful standup...Hilarious, imaginative and wonderfully cheap."

The Independent

"Mr Antopolski's world-view is so uplifting, you'll leave wishing you could stay in his head for your summer holidays."
