Dan Willis

Dan Willis

British stand-up comedian, headlines all major International comedy clubs, as seen on Channel 4's Kings of Comedy and Edinburgh or Bust.

 

In 2001 after winning the Time-Out Competition to be a Perrier judge at the Edinburgh festival, Willis made the move from computer programmer to full-time comedian.  

 

The IT crash also made this move slightly easier, if not essential- you’ve got to see the funny side of things after all.

He is a fast on his feet thinker, intelligent with a warm, engaging style – perfect for clients who wants to leave a lasting, positive impression for their corporate event.
