The Classic

Comedian throws in dead-end career in I.T. for lucrative future in stand-up comedy… yeah right!

Dan Willis could have been living in the lap of luxury in the U.K. enjoying the spoils of a high earning career in I.T. Instead he followed his secret passion for comedy that has lead him to emigrating to Australia and, on Mon 7 May, opening his own solo show, ‘Ferris Bueller's Way Off’ at The Classic Studio in Auckland.

As well as the usual stand-up gigs on the pro UK circuit, Dan has also written a number of solo shows about things he loves like Radiohead, Michael Jackson, and information technology. He also loves pop culture which lead to him writing a show that endeavours to apply the philosophies of '80s feel good movie ‘Ferris Buellers Day Off’ - "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around every once in a while, you could miss it."

Dan Willis looks for life’s answers in ‘Ferris Bueller's Way Off’ a show he has performed at Comedy Festivals in Edinburgh, Adelaide and Melbourne.

"Ferris Buellers Way Of is terminally cool... go see it!" - The Independent
"Dan Willis should be named along the greats of UK comedy, this show will leave you wondering - what would Ferris do?" - ComedyFestival.com.au

Dan Willis spent 12 years in the I.T. industry, working for companies such as Unisys, IBM and Coutts & Co (the Queens bank).

In 2002 Dan won the Time Out Competition to be a Perrier judge at the Edinburgh festival. He watched a lot of stand-up comedy and realised he had a secret passion. From here, the step into comedy didn’t seem too complicated.

Now, after over 2000 gigs in 15 different countries, TV appearances in the UK and Australia, Dan performs in all major comedy clubs (e.g. Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Highlights, etc) and international festivals (in 2011: Melbourne, Adelaide and Edinburgh).

In 2011 he emigrated to Australia but don’t hold that against him.

Dan Willis will also host ‘The Big Show 2012’ at the Comedy Chamber from Sat 28 Apr to Sat 5 May.
