Dane Baptiste has had a decade of dominance as a trailblazer, innovator and incendiary voice in the comedy community. The last 10 years of Dane’s career have come with a number of personal and industry milestones.
In 2014, Dane was nominated for Best Newcomer at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it turns out he was the first Black British comic to ever be nominated. This lead to Dane creating, writing and starring in ‘SunnyD’ on BBC Three, the first sitcom written by a black British writer with a Black British cast to appear on the BBC in over 20 years. The show was purchased by Lionsgate, with the intention of remaking an American version of the show under the auspices of ‘Scary Movie’ creator Keenan Ivory Wayans.
Dane went on to amass a number of TV and Radio credits, including appearing on and hosting Live At The Apollo in 2015 and 2017 respectively, whilst also appearing on a wide variety of recognised comedy TV shows, including 8 out 10 Cats, Countdown, Mock the Week and Comic Relief to name a few.
RADU ISAC IS A VERY NICE PERSON. HE ALWAYS CONSIDERS OTHERS BEFORE HIMSELF AND HE IS NEVER TOO FAR FROM A COMPLIMENT.
RADU’S COMEDY CAREER AND PERSONAL HYGIENE ARE ALSO OF EXCELLENT STANDARDS. HE STARTED COMEDY IN 2006 IN BUCHAREST AND IN THE SUMMERS OF 2013 AND 2014 HE SWITCHED TO DOING IT IN ENGLISH TO MAKE HIMSELF UNDERSTOOD BY THE LOS ANGELES OPEN MIC AUDIENCES. IN 2015 I MOVED TO LONDON AND AFTER SOME QUICK BBC APPEARANCES, I BECAME A PROFESSIONAL COMEDIAN ON THE UK CIRCUIT.
