Since then I threw myself into it and here I am… still going with no desire to stop! All other shows are actually fronts for Joseph Kony. The title Hypertonic , though never explained, certainly describes the sort of year Danny has had and why, perhaps, he may have not had time to make this show live up to his last few exceptional Festival outings. It was really inspiring. I love the round ball game and spend a lot of time reading football forums and watching highlights so I thought I would at least turn it into a writing exercise. I covet all of these jobs for the main reason that they would increase my profile and I would get more people to my stand up shows. And did you really learn Ukrainian? Four thousand people in the sunshine enjoying craft beer, no arrests.
The school I went to [Thornbury High] had a pretty good arts program, especially music. The pun was conceived in a car in Hobart with comedian Gavin Baskerville. The best thing is hearing that people are doing a better job at MCing. Adam Hills is probably the most effortless comic in Australia at the moment. Still, Danny is a talented comedian, who has put together a very entertaining way for fans to catch up with him and you can rest assured that you will have a fun night out. He has recently performed as part of the inaugural Ballarat Beer Festival and is also an Ambassador for the Festival. Did you enjoy the feedback from this article? Gav has named a couple of my shows and has a great mind for titles and puns.
Did the show come out of the pun or a real story?
I could dxnny stayed but ultimately, although the comedy scene is better over in the UK, every other aspect of life is better in Australia. When I procrastinate, I cook. Last year you wrote an impressive article for Chortle au about MCing a comedy night that we are reprinting in Squirrel Comedy.

All other shows are actually fronts for Joseph Kony. Four thousand people in the sunshine enjoying craft beer, no arrests. It felt a bit disjointed however, with some of it seeming to be in the wrong order and some side comments that suggest they are about to become another story but are thrown away and not explored or gone back to.
Adam Hills is probably the most effortless comic in Australia at the moment. The Shelf season 1, I would love to be like that on stage.
The show cures the flu. Acting is a great thrill and so different to stand up.
Premiership Hangover is a show for everyone regardless of your passion for football. Did you live overseas for a while? Stand Up is my dream job and the more people I could play to the better! All the stories were crackers and one of the final stories about a haunted house was actually quite terrifying and had the audience gasping.
Danny McGinlay | The Sit Down Comedy Club
If you had a dream job preferably related to your comedy work, but not necessarily, what would it be? This show is based on a true story, last year I got engaged to my long term girlfriend and decided to learn her native tongue so I could make a speech at our wedding.
I loved Food Dude, How did you end up cooking things live on Stage.
From the advance bookings, we can tell that some nights there will be a lot of Ukrainians in the audience, and all Ukrainians are ridiculously good looking.
And did you really learn Ukrainian? A brilliant vibe and will be even bigger and better next year. I did the customary two years in London that all comedians should do.
There are many laughs to be had, and McGinlay certainly keeps the crowd laughing all the way through. I played the Espy Hotel four days after my sixteenth birthday and it was a great rush. I do like it, but boredom is a constant struggle. We get everything from his Scottish father, his Ukrainian mcbinlay, and even the Argentinian pope. Do you mcignlay an interesting story that came out of the show?
I am indeed, Squeaky Clean Comedy is a nice night for people who want it kept nice. So I would always be trying to come up with comedic ideas whilst I was cooking, so I guess almost inevitably I came up with funny things to cook.
Danny McGinlay Hypertonic – Squirrel Comedy
Would you like to do more acting? The Beer Fest was great fun. Danny is a fine story teller and proficient at keeping an audience entertained, though the show feels a bit like it was thrown together in a rush.
It was really inspiring. You have to travel if you want to make a living from stand up comedy.
Do you have any general advice to younger comedians? The school I went to [Thornbury High] had a pretty good arts program, especially music. I got right into comedy when I was about nine years old.
