Always Was, Always Will Be…Funny

Dane comes from a long line of funny buggers. A wise-cracking Dad, a cleverly-cutting Mum, hilarious grandparents, and generations of jokers, pranksters and yarnspinners. Now Dane is here, putting the ‘Rad’ into ‘traditional’.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

The undisputed Comedy King of Wagga, Dane Simpson burst onto the scene in 2015 as a national finalist on Deadly Funny and from there it has been a fast-rising trajectory for this comedian in hot demand. From there Dane’s stratospheric rise continued with him recently bagging spots on Just for Laughs, Would I Lie To You?, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, Have You Been Paying Attention?, Wil Anderson’s Question Everything, The Hundred with Andy Lee, SBS’s Letters & Numbers or showing off cooking skills (or lack thereof) on The Cook Up with Adam Liaw.

This year, Dane has launched his new stand-up show Always Was Always Will Be…Funny at the MICF. He will tour this show throughout 2023. 2022 saw the creation of Didgeridoozy. The critically acclaimed, gut-busting show where Dane introduces us to his master didgeridoo playing skills. The show first appeared at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, then went on to tour around Australia before embarking on the world stage, performing in India and the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The year ended with a bang for this gifted comedian, with Dane performing Didgeridoozy for a 1hr stand-up comedy special on Paramount +.

Dane’s dizzying schedule has also had him caught up in a whirlwind of corporate gigs, tours and festival runs, both as a solo artist and as part of Aborigi-LOL. Dane has also appeared on the Opening Night Comedy Allstars Supershow and Get Krackin. He produces the monthly Riverina Comedy Club and is a programmer/producer of the Wagga Comedy Festival, as well as being a regular guest on ABC radio with Anna Moulder and Richard Glover’s TGIF show. During lockdown, Dane became the host of the hit series, Servo Bingo. The quirky, live and interactive show quickly amassed a cult following of devotees. The premise was to call out the cars and characters that would roll into the local service station opposite Thirsty Crow brewery in Wagga. Yes, it was every bit as silly, fun and entertaining as it sounds!

"Optimistic, upbeat and effortlessly charming." Chortle.co.uk, 2023
