DANDYMAN is a journey of peculiar proportions. A poignant story about waiting, about tested patience, and the way we interact with a changing world. DANDYMAN is the creation of Daniel Oldaker. A true original, Oldaker draws on comedy, absurd acrobatics, top-notch circus skills, and magic, and blends them into something entirely fresh and a little bit chaotic.

DANDYMAN takes you on a journey of the imagination. Everyday objects transform fluidly in the hands of this talented physical comedian. Armed with just a pocket full of drinking straws, DANDYMAN fills the stage with characters, landscapes, and wild adventures. Rediscover the joy of playfulness as DANDYMAN sweeps you up in this invigorating and crazy world.

Achieving one of the highest accolades an artist can hope for; Oldaker is a ‘‘performer’s performer’, inspiring audiences and peers alike.

Daniel Oldaker is a wonderful, mischievous physical comedian” Frank Woodley “Presented with exceptional energy, the show demonstrates Oldaker’s live performance skills while constantly subverting the conventions of comedy and circus, withdrawing the predictability to offer a genuinely unique Festival experience”  THE PUN – JONATHAN RIVETT
