From accidentally visiting Chernobyl to spending time with his vice squad cousin in Hong Kong to the wonders of the Japanese toilet in his Hawaiian hotel. McGinlay has a fabulous knack for mimicking accents, a skill he utilizes during his jokes to maximise the laughs. You started at 16, how did this comedy thing come about? Adam Hills is probably the most effortless comic in Australia at the moment. Instead the audience is treated to many stories about his wife, his children, his father, and various other anecdotes from his life. Did you live overseas for a while? And did you really learn Ukrainian?

Danny is a fine story teller and proficient at keeping an audience entertained, though the show feels a bit like it was thrown together in a rush. The pun was conceived in a car in Hobart with comedian Gavin Baskerville.
Last year you wrote an impressive article for Chortle au dany MCing a comedy night that we are reprinting in Squirrel Comedy. Stand Up is my dream job and the more people I could play to the better!

I did the customary two years in London that all comedians should do. The best thing is hearing that people are doing a better job at MCing. The teachers would book me mcginlwy host the musical nights and I would tell jokes and I guess it kinda grew from there.
The Beer Fest was great fun.
Danny McGinlay Learns Ukrainian at The Factory Theatre – Sydney
The school I went to [Thornbury High] had a pretty good arts program, especially music. You are also doing Squeaky Clean Comedy during the festival this year. From the advance bookings, we can tell that some nights there will be a lot of Ukrainians in the audience, and all Ukrainians are ridiculously good looking. So I would always be trying to come up with comedic ideas whilst I was cooking, so I guess almost inevitably I came up with funny things to cook.
You started at 16, how did this comedy thing come about? Cmoedy the dnny were crackers and one of the final stories about a haunted house was actually quite terrifying and had the audience gasping.
And did you really learn Ukrainian? I play a lot of Word with Friends.
I played the Espy Hotel four days after my sixteenth birthday and it was a great rush. Did the show come out of the pun or a real story? Premiership Hangover is a show for everyone regardless of your passion for football.
Surprisingly McGinlay has a strong knowledge of Catholicism and this forms the basis for many of his jokes. He is a passionate Dogs supporter, a warm up guy for a variety of TV shows, and at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, he showcases his ability for standup comedy.
I covet all of these jobs for the main reason that they would increase my profile and I would get more people to my stand up shows. Instead the audience is treated to many stories about his wife, his children, his father, and various other anecdotes from his life.
We get everything from his Scottish father, his Ukrainian wife, and even the Argentinian pope.

Adam Hills is probably the most effortless comic in Australia at the moment. I love the round ball game and spend a lot of time reading football forums and watching highlights so I thought I would at least turn it into a writing exercise.
I do like it, but boredom is a constant mcginlaj. Did you live overseas for a while? I loved Food Dude, How did you end up cooking things live on Stage. McGinlay has a fabulous knack for mimicking accents, a skill he utilizes during his jokes to maximise the laughs. It felt a bit disjointed however, with some of it seeming to be in the wrong order and some festiva comments that suggest they are about to become another comrdy but are thrown away and not explored or gone back to.
Suren Jayemanne — Surenity Now. All other shows are actually fronts for Joseph Kony.
Barry Morgan — Organ is not a dirty word. A brilliant vibe and will be even bigger and better next year. Since then I threw myself into it and here Dany am… still going with no desire to stop! The Shelf season 1, Acting is a great thrill and so different to stand up. Danny is currently out and about gigging interstate and has found the time to answer fomedy questions about his career, his Festival show and the MCing article.
The title Hypertonicthough never explained, certainly describes the sort of year Danny has had and why, perhaps, he may have not had time to make this show live up to his last few exceptional Festival outings. His fee is a slab of Boags. I am indeed, Squeaky Clean Comedy is a nice night for people who want it kept nice. The most exciting thing was, I was told a rumour that Heston Blumenthal saw snippets on youtube and loved it. If you had a dream job preferably related to your comedy work, but not necessarily, what would it be?
Mcvinlay due to being underage I could really do comedy properly until I was Danny has an easy rapport with the audience and handles some audience participation effortlessly.
You have to travel if you want to make a living from stand up comedy. Gav has named a couple of my shows and has a great mind for titles and puns. The show cures the flu.
I got right into comedy when I was about nine years old. There are many laughs to be had, and McGinlay certainly keeps the crowd laughing all the way through.
