Daniel Oldaker presently spends 4 months of each year touring to Europe, America & Asia, performing his highly innovative one-man physical comedy shows
Daniel began performing professionally at the age of 18 and that same year appeared on ‘Red Faces’, Australia’s premier TV variety show winning first prize. Daniel then spent two years perfecting his abundant physical skills at CircoArts circus school, Christchurch, New Zealand.
On his return to Australia, Daniel immediately resumed professional work, appearing in both the 1999 and 2000 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He now extends himself beyond pure performance, to writing and producing. As part of this extension, each year for the last 8 years Daniel has self-produced his own street theatre performance tour to Europe and trained with world class physical theatre practitioners like Phillipe Gaulier (Mentor to Sascha Baron Cohen ), Avner Eisenberg ( U.S.A.), Gardy Hutter ( Switzerland ) and many more.
His innovative use of everyday ephemera, high energy and low verbosity have made him the surprise hit in shows like La Clique at The Famous Spiegeltent in Edinburgh, Adelaide and Melbourne.
At the age of only 34, Daniel has achieved perhaps the highest accolade an artist can expect; he is a ‘performer’s performer’, not only a source of entertainment for the audience, but a true inspiration to his peers. Daniel sets extremely high standards of originality and innovation, which enrich all who see him.
