Up until recently Dane Baptiste was stuck in just another dead-end office job. Feeling the bite of boredom and the lack of opportunity despite his immense ability he began to look elsewhere.
Taking a leap into comedy, Baptiste has seen a massive change in his fortunes. In 2014 the South Londoner was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Award - notably the first black Britain to be so. He was also nominated for a Chortle Award in 2015.
Fast becoming recognised, Baptiste has been invited to make appearances on various television shows including Safeword, Sweat The Small Stuff, Celebrity Squares, Virtually Famous and Live At The Apollo.
He also writes and stars in his very own BBC Three television show Sunny D which sees Baptiste stuck in his parent’s home whilst in adulthood, frustrated he is desperate to escape the crammed household. A true 21st century tragicomic story.

“a striking set that leaves Baptiste’s talent in no doubt
” - The Guardian
“Baptiste gives a much-needed political show that engages with and deconstructs diversity in Britain, and how that blend of being from here, but coming from there, gives an implicitly funny point of view for the modern age. ” - The Skinny
