Described as a ‘dazzling stage presence’ by The Times and “master of the surreal and natural heir to Bill Bailey’ by The Observer, Dan Antopolski takes his one man show stacked full of great one-liners to the Kino-Teatr, St Leonards, on Friday February 26.
Antopolski is an award winning comedian who has built himself a reputation for being one of the most inventive, intelligent, edgy and unusual comics to emerge in the UK, with his innovative shows being recognised for creatively pushing the comedy boundaries.
He won Perrier Award nominations at the Edinburgh Festival for his own show and as part of Lee Mack’s Show.
Mark Monahan of the Daily Telegraph reviewed his Edinburgh show and said: “You’re unlikely to see a slicker, more self-assured performer at Edinburgh this year than Dan Antopolski...he positively glistens with articulate, middle-class confidence, and has the sort of control of the stage that, on the comedy circuit, sorts the big cheeses from the Kraft slices...For sheer fertility of imagination, there are still few who can match him.”
He was also nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award and has won the BBC New Comedy Award. He is now a regular face on CBBC, playing the central character in The Dare Devil.
As a comic actor, Dan has starred as Jeffers in two series of the cult BBC Two sci-fi spoof Hyperdrive. His other TV credits include The Stand-Up Show (BBC One), The Live Floor Show (BBC Two), The Perrier Awards (Channel 4), Time Gentlemen Please (Sky One) and The World Comedy Series (Paramount Comedy channel/Comedy Central).
Dan has also appeared in the international blockbuster movie, The Da Vinci Code.
This will be the first show by a comedian at the Kino-Teatr since it opened last July with others being lined up for future dates.
Performance at 7.30pm. Tickets £8 from www.kino-teatr.co.uk or on the door.
