Experience Dan Mitchell live

I regularly appear live on stage, screen or Radio, at big venues as well as smaller, more intimate places (no, not those places). It’s not possible to replicate the dynamic of a live performance and the connection with the audience that only a live appearance can make possible. Larger venues are great to perform in, but it’s the small intimate gigs where the connection is strongest and the audience can help me hone my material so everyone gets to experience the best Dan Mitchell possible.

Please check out my facebook and twitter feeds to know where I’ll be appearing next, it’s absolutely the best way to experience the world according to Dan Mitchell, after all what other world is there?

Dan Mitchell on TV and Video

My breakthrough on TV was an ITV series called “Show me the funny”. Not only was I out there in front of the nation, I was being judged by a panel of comedic legends. It was an experience I’ll never forget, the judges will never forget (probably) and large swathes of the nation will never forget (possibly). If you missed it then you can catch some of the best bits (ie my performances) on youtube

Following “Show me the funny” (I came second, first was already taken, apparently) I’ve appeared on several BBC Wales shows and you can catch me on some of Rhod Gilbert’s DVDs, in the extras. He did want it to be the other way around, but I insisted..

I’ve been fortunate to take part in several TV programmes, sometimes to discuss my own shows, or to participate in a discussion to give it a humorous element or just contribute my views and outlook on more serious subjects. 

Recently I’ve been busy making “Boxfull”,  for Made in Cardiff TV. Did I mention I wrote, produced and starred in it? Well I have now..

..and  just when you think Dan Mitchell isn’t going to be on TV, you may well be getting a little of the Dan Mitchell magic on that voiceover that you’re listening to. Enjoy.

Dan Mitchell on the radio

I’ve been very priviledged to be part of quite a few radio programmes - from the serious to the humorous.

You may have heard me presenting the BBC Radio Wales‘ comedy news quiz “What’s the Story?” as well as being a regular guest on BBC Radio Wales' "The Jamie Owen Show".

Dan Mitchell, writer.

Writing isn’t easy, it takes hard work and practice. And a few commas and other stuff.

I’m not at all known as a writer, but for years I’ve been doing it behing the scenes - comedy routines, sketches, speeches - all those things that get done but are never seen.

I’ve recently completed a series of TV sketches all put together as “Boxfull” for Made in Cardiff TV - a lot of writing that hopefully makes TV work and puts a smile on people’s faces. Hopefully it puts a smile on your face.

Taking this further and exploring creative writing has been a joy for me and I hope at some stage even more of my creativity will be there for you to read or experience in other ways in the near future. Watch this space (why do people say that? - it makes dripping paint something to aspire to).

Contact Dan Mitchell

I’d love to hear from you. I don’t mind if you just want to say ‘hello’ or to ask if I can help you with a project. If I’m strictly honest I’d prefer a message about a two year booking in vegas, but I’m equally happy to help out at your event, or just touch base. Just as long as Vegas doesn’t call.

Seriously, if there’s something on your mind, get in contact!
