Comedy in the Hammer: Dan Brennan

comedy in the hammer week5 - Dan Brennan local comedy events


Hey guys, welcome back to Comedy in the Hammer! Welcome to 2017! As always we sit down with a local comedian and let you know what local comedy events and shows are happening in the city this week!


This week I’m joined by newer comedian Dan Brennan.


Comedy in the Hammer Dan Brennan


MS: How long have you been doing stand up for?


DB: It will be a whole year come February.


MS: What’s your favourite room to perform at in the city?


DB: Yuk Yuk’s. I’ve only been there for amateur night but… it’s a proper comedy club and it just feels different than any other place in the City because it is dedicated to comedy.


MS: How do you usually deal with hecklers/got any good stories??


DB: I haven’t had many hecklers. One time a guy started talking to me and I just said in a sheepish voice, ‘please don’t speak to me, I’m new at this.


MS: What advice would you give newer comics?


DB: Get out as much as you can and record and listen to your sets on the way home. Seasoned pro, Marc Trinidad told me to listen to my sets on the way home from the gig and it makes a huge difference.


MS: What’s the one joke you’ve tried over and over again to make work but for whatever reason cannot get right?


DB: I used to do this bit about how I’m an immigrant and as a middle aged white guy I’m not the typical redneck stereotype of an immigrant. It goes on for 3 minutes and I had to give up on it cause it got no laughs anywhere.


MS: Where can we check you out online?


DB: I have a youtube channel: Dan Brennan Comedy. I’m occasionally funny on twitter @danbrennanlive but ramping up my social media presence is something I’m focusing on for year 2 of my comedy life.


MS: Are there any videos we can see online?


DB: There’s an audio only set I did 6 months ago that’s on my channel but please don’t watch it. New stuff will be up before the end of the holidays. Promise.
