Dan Brader has been doing comedy since 2007 all over Australia and his native home of New Zealand. He was a regular fixture in the competitive Melbourne and Perth comedy scenes where he also ran a number of comedy rooms himself. In between sojourns to Australia, he's been performing regularly in the Dunedin comedy scene as a headline act since 2010. His solo show Horrible, Horrible Human Being, which he toured throughout New Zealand, was a sell out in Dunedin and further cemented his reputation as a cult favourite there. Brader has also performed his unique brand of acidic, unashamedly brutal observational comedy and freewheeling storytelling in solo shows in festivals such as the Melbourne Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Perth's Fringeworld.
Here's what the critics have to say:
'Brader is a comic you will love or hate, but he's never dull.' - New Zealand Theatre Review.
'Known for his morally-questionable storytelling, Dan has a way of making your own wild stories seem tame by comparison!'- Busselton Dunsborough Mail.
'Brader's unique comedic style set him apart. - The Southland Times.
'In a comedy world that can be a bit ‘same-y’, Dan Brader dares to be different' - ARTSHUB.
'He walks his own line and drags the laughs out of it with a sharp shake.' - Gagging For It.
