Danielle Walker

WINNER: Best Newcomer, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, 2018.

“Insane pay-offs, delivered with the unhinged laugh a Batman villain would be proud of.”
- Chortle

Danielle Walker is a strange, if not perhaps slightly deranged girl known for her dark and twisted everyday observations and stories.

Moving from Townsville to Melbourne in 2015, Danielle started gigging and honing her craft and it was in early 2016 that she took out the prize in Australia’s biggest open mic competition and was named RAW Comedy National Champion.

Since then, Danielle has been handpicked by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to be part of ‘The Comedy Zone’ a line-up show in the festival of the 5 best new comedians from around Australia and has gone on to appear on Comedy Up Late and Stand and Deliver, both for the ABC.

In 2017 she was also invited to perform at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Just for Laughs festival, where her set was filmed for a special to broadcast on The Comedy Channel.

Danielle recently appeared as ‘Ranger Danny’ alongside stars Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney on the show everyone is talking about – Get Krack!n for ABC TV.

Danielle’s first hour long stand up show Bush Rat won her the Best Newcomer Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2018.  Winning this prestigious award will see Danielle take her show to the Soho Theatre in London’s West End in early 2019.
