Make sure you get dinner tickets. With Dinner tickets you get to go 1.5 hours earlier and you get front row seats. If buying on Goldstar, you have to email Goldstar to have them make dinner reservations for you. It is free and worth it. The food is average priced, you get huge portions, and it tastes great.

Description

Danny Bhoy began stand up in 1998. A year later, he won The Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, Britain’s biggest competition for comedy newcomers. In 2001, he took his first full length solo show to the Edinburgh Festival, where, within a week, he had sold out his entire three-week run. The following year Danny returned to Edinburgh with a new show which attracted more and more fans, bowled over by his “razor-sharp mind, and quick-witted one liners.” Over the next few years, Danny eschewed the regular comedy club scene in favour of full length shows, which seemed the natural progression for a comic who began to display an innate talent for story-telling on stage.

Since 2003, Danny has made annual appearances at all the major comedy festivals around the world. His first solo show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival was described as a “stunning debut by one of the finest observational comics around.” The success of his live work led to various TV appearances on high- profile national Australian TV shows such as Rove Live, The Glasshouse, and several Melbourne International Comedy Festival Galas. Since 2003, Danny has regularly been the top-selling box office comedian in his home town of Edinburgh, but in just a few years he has also broken ticket records at festivals in Australia and New Zealand.

His 2005 show about his travels around Australia was described as “effortlessly funny” by one critic, and “the stand up equivalent of Bill Bryson” by another. eal Gazette to describe him as “the stand out hit of the festival” and was nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Individual Comedy Performance that year. In November 2005, Danny was also invited to take part in the inaugural Las Vegas Comedy Festival alongside some of the biggest names in comedy including Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock.

2007 saw Danny embark on his first massive tour of Australia, which included 94 dates across all the major regional towns and cities, and ended with a triumphant series of shows at the Sydney Opera House where he filmed his first DVD, Danny Bhoy: Live at the Sydney Opera House. He then went on to his 3rd sell-out tour of New Zealand, and became the first stand-up comedian ever to do a run of English-speaking shows in India.
