Rather stumbled on this and didn’t know what to expect. What we got was a hour full of laughs. Daniel is likeable, funny and has great comedic timing. Would recommend you see him. He is sure to go far.

Really enjoyed this. I would imagine it is quite daunting to do stand up in a small venue but he was brilliant. Very funny. Very clever. One of our favourite shows. Would definitely recommend.

Took a chance on this comedian we had never heard of before but so glad we did. Funny without being crass. Only negative is the venue hot and cramped

I was sitting outside the Caves venue with a friend when a man (Daniel) approached us with a flyer about his show "Better Man" and told us "I'm not terrible". This bold & ambitious claim completely reeled us in and I'm so glad we were, because it was an original, insightful and very funny performance. We loved it and would recommend seeing him. Go Daniel!

New to the fringe, but the craft and class of the jokes shines through, the delivery betters many long-established performers and his genuine warmth shines through. Played to a deserved full house today and I look forward to seeing more of him in the future.

This was one of those classic Fringe "we have a gap, what's nearby?" finds.
The guy on the door said it was good, bit they say day that. This one badly undersold it.
Dan Audritt was instantly likeable and engaging. His material was brilliantly observed without ever being cynical. "Pitch perfect" delivery, as good as any A list performance at the Fringe; natural timing, plenty of laughs and a fully engaged audience as a result.

In my top five from this year's Fringe, possibly top three (but only because I can't separate them at the top).

Just go see him

Really enjoyed Daniel's show. It's nicely crafted and well delivered. I'm sure it's hard to do standup at lunch time in a small venue but we were really pleased we went and we had a good laugh............

Daniel Audritt would like to be a better man. He would, in fact, like men to be better. This is a show about manhood, masculinity and how silly all of that can be. Now, this all well-trodden, familiar comedic ground and there’s nothing particularly ‘new’ here, but it remains ever-fertile...
