Winner of the UK Pun Championships, the Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian of the Year and a runner-up in both the NATY (Formerly Hackney) New Act of the Year and the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year, Darren Walsh's silly happy-go-lucky style has been compared to Harry Hill, with an act that combines surreal nonsense and snippets of daft songs.
“He is a genial presence, not manic like Tim Vine, not wonderfully nerdy like Gary Delaney and not deadpan like Jimmy Carr, but very much his own mirthmaker.” - Kate Copstick, The Scotsman.
“A real crowd-pleaser, with originality and personality by the bucketload.” - Chortle.
“...undoubtedly a Milton Jones in the making.” - ★★★★ ThreeWeeks
