Australia’s funniest front man of circus and physical comedy presents a not-to-be missed night of sublime stupidity.
Take a journey of peculiar proportions with Daniel Oldaker, as he presents jaw dropping circus, absurd acrobatics and mind-blowing magic.
“Daniel Oldaker is a wonderful, mischievous physical comedian.” Frank Woodley
“Daniel Oldaker is the kind of artist other performers watch for inspiration.” Captain Frodo (La Soiree)
"High energy clowning...rivals Buster Keaton." Adelaide Advertiser
Daniel Oldaker has been creating world class physical circus/theatre for over 15 years in Melbourne and abroad. He divides his time between the international street theatre circuits of Europe, Asia and North America, and theatre, cabaret, stage and corporate performances in Australia and New Zealand. His innovative use of everyday ephemera and innate sense of physical comedy have made him a hit on both sides of the globe, including the recent Edinburgh Fringe. His energy and originality are unsurpassed.
Daniel has achieved perhaps the highest accolade an artist can expect; he is a ‘'performer's performer', not only enormously entertaining for the public but also a true inspiration to his peers. In each performance. Daniel takes the audience on an unforgettable journey; from the unique, vaudeville-inspired, Bell Boy, to his delightfully absurd cabaret piece Dandyman and the hilarious melon-smashing exploits of Live Flavor.
Highlights include: Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Live Flavor, Agogo Agogo, Mnuh), La Clique in The Famous Spiegeltent (Edinburgh, Melb., Adelaide), Lainsuojattomat Festival (Finland), Canal City (Fukuoka, Japan) Festival Internacional De Artistas De Rua Da Bahia (Brazil), Indianapolis Fringe (USA), Hotlips Variety Show (Sweden), Ali McGregor’s Variety Hour (Hamer Hall), ABC TV’s The Sideshow.http://www.danieloldaker.comhttp://www.varietyville.com
