Dane Baptiste | G.O.D (Gold. Oil. Drugs.)

The multi award nominated Host of Live at the Apollo and Star of Stand up Central, Live at the Palladium, Cats Does Countdown, Mock the Week and sitcom Sunny D… Announces Second Leg Of UK Tour By Huge Popular Demand

Fresh from selling out the first leg of his 2018 UK tour (which included 5 dates at London’s Soho Theatre), Dane Baptiste takes his third smash hit show G.O.D. (Gold. Oil. Drugs.) on the road for a further 19 UK dates this autumn including a show at Up The Creek Comedy Club in Greenwich October 23rd, which will be recorded a live special.

The London born stand up made comedy history in 2014 as the first black British act to be nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award with his debut show Citizen Dane and his critically acclaimed second Reasonable Doubts that went on to tour the UK – both had multiple sell out shows.

Original, provocative and exceptionally crafted, G.O.D. explores our worldwide pursuit of wealth, power and pleasure. This show is not about GOD, it is a show about G.O.D; an abbreviation of the new things that humanity has come to uphold over everything else; namely Gold, Oil and Drugs. This is a show about the distractions and attractions of modern human life; and how the pursuit of the ‘Good Life’ can involve a lot of evil, vice and debauchery. But is that really a bad thing?

The G.O.D World Tour has already seen Dane head to Australia, New Zealand, Estonia, The Netherlands, Belgium, Latvia and Finland – with one thing uniting them all; audience laughter and critical acclaim:

“one of standup’s most acute social observers”

“smart, timely and punchily hilarious”

“he can make you smile as he informs you that we are all doomed”

“Oozing experience, confidence and charisma”

“topical and thoughtful with shades of silliness”

“The comedian’s ability to read the audience is second to none”
