With a comedy career spanning 10 years, he is a regular at venues across the country and has performed internationally at comedy festivals in the Netherlands (Utrecht International Comedy Festival), Singapore (Singapore Fringe), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival) and Australia (Melbourne International Comedy Festival).
He headlined Comedy Zone Asia at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016 where he also performed his solo show Daniel Fernandes – Unoffended. He returned to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2017 to feature in the first ever Indian comedy showcase at the festival and was the first Indian comic to feature in the MICF Roadshows in 2017 and 2018 in Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. His TV credits include ABCTV’s Comedy Up Late aired in Australia and Comedy Central Asia’s Stand-Up Asia.
In April 2019, Daniel set a record for India’s longest unscripted live stand-up performance of 6 hours at his improvised stand-up show, Talk to Me – Iron Man. Later that year, he released his first comedy special, Shadows (which he also toured here) on a pay-as you-like model on his YouTube channel.
Daniel marks his second run at Soho Theatre with Alive & Vaccinated, a show that celebrates those who made it to the other side of a global pandemic, through a uniquely Indian lens.
