The Other Side
Olympic potential. Addiction. Loss. Fear. Truth. Hope. Love. Comedy.
Eleven-year-old Daniel Townes was a national champion swimmer. Five years later, he chucked it all in. By 19, he was on the road to addiction that would end up costing at least $135,000* (not a typo), and a whole lot more.
Now 34, Daniel Townes returns from performing in the UK, Middle East, and Asia for his 10th festival with his funniest and most personal show yet.
*Don’t tell his parents.
"There wasn't one joke from Townes that didn't receive a massive response." Midwest Times

★★★★ "...this highly personal and honest reflection is a touching journey interspersed with top-mark laughs, clever call backs and acerbic social commentary."

“…he’s a sharp, confident performer and this confessional show goes beyond your average blokey stand-up to show vulnerability amid the laughs.”
