Comedian from Penge reaches final London-wide new talent contest

First published in News

Penge comedian Dan Green has beaten more than 160 new London comedians to book a place in the final of a comedy competition.

The comic, who is in the final of the Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian 2014 at The Forge in Camden on September 17, said: “I currently live in Penge. The usual response is for people to repeat 'Penge' as it's a word they've never heard of before, swiftly followed by them saying 'sounds like a disease!'.

“I haven't got the energy to humour them any more so I just say Crystal Palace. It's nice, there's a park with some stone dinosaurs.”

Dan has been performing for around three years, balancing his day job at the Science Museum with comedy.

He said: “It's something I'd always wanted to do, I was a bit bored in my day job and I wanted to challenge myself. I don't necessarily buy into it was a 'brave' thing to do, but I think it's always good to try new things and push yourself.”
