Buckler is one of Great Britain's fastest rising stars of comedy and
magic, with a unique style that has already taken him around the world and
resulted in his own comedy special for Channel Four: Danny Does Tricks.
Danny fell in love with performing almost as soon as he could walk but it
was while at college, when called upon to perform a self devised piece as
part of a drama course, that Danny realised this was something he could do

circuit to become one of its most popular performers - regularly playing
at all the top venues including Jongleurs and The Comedy Store. Danny also
works as a TV warm-up artist, on shows as diverse as the hard hitting
Channel Four show Is This Your Life? (Open Media) and the award
winning sitcom Dinner Ladies (Positive Productions). Last year
Danny was called upon to do a 'Bob Hope' and entertain troops overseas

the Adelphie Theatre, in London's West End. This year Danny is teaming up
with the amazing Mandy Muden to bring their first show, Two Funny
Magicians, to the Edinburgh Festival.

"The Stars of Magic. I bought this when I was sixteen with my last
twenty quid in the world and I'm still learning from it now. I have
visions of one day lying on my death bed, passing it on to little Danny
Buckler the Third, my grandson, and him waiting until I'm gone before
chucking it out along with my Batman comic collection the ungrateful
"Chris Power. He's one of the true quiet men of magic, He never blows
his own trumpet and yet he knows so much about timing, performing and
misdirection. One of the world's finest people."

"There's been quite a few, but the most recent was walking over
London Bridge on my own having just received a huge response for my comedy
from a sold-out Adelphie Theatre as part of the 'Victoria Wood and
Friends' and looking out over London and for once in my life feeling proud
