Take a pinch of Mr Bean, throw in a dash of Jim Carey, a handful of Frank Woodley, cross Salvador Dali with Jerry Lewis, throw in some circus skills, a bowtie made of straws and a whole lot of charisma and you've arrived somewhere in the neighborhood of Dandyman.

Daniel Oldaker, The Dandyman, returns to the Byron Theatre direct from another successful European tour presenting a new ridiculously funny, poignant and interactive show that's very look at me, look at me, in a Facebook kind of parody way.

Daniel Oldaker, The Dandyman, is an award-winning physical comedian who draws on 15 years of performance experience in over 25 countries.


He has trained with Phillippe Gaulier (Sascha Baron Cohen's mentor) and performed at many of the most highly regarded Festivals and venues around the globe, including the Brisbane Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Woodford Folk Festival and at the Sydney Opera House with La Soiree.

At the Byron Theatre this Saturday, 11am and 8pm. Tickets: $25 Full, $20 Conc., $15 Child
