Original and provocative, Baptiste is hailed as one of the most exciting acts to break in years. The London born stand up made comedy history in 2014 as the first Black British act to be nominated for a comedy award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for his debut stand up show Citizen Dane. Following this nomination, the show enjoyed incredible success at London’s Soho Theatre completing two sold out runs with additional dates added due to phenomenal demand. His second stand up show Reasonable Doubts was again met with huge critical acclaim and performed to sold out audiences at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, with his first nationwide solo tour following in 2016. In 2018 Dane set out on a massive world tour, covering numerous territories, with his smash hit third stand up hour G.O.D. (Gold. Oil. Drugs).
He has extensive TV credits and Dane also hosts his own hugely successful podcast Dane Baptiste Questions Everything, which was recently acquired by Acast in 2020.
In October 2020, Dane’s satirical new pilot Bamous was commissioned by BBC Three, and will see Dane front a brand new comedy entertainment show, celebrating Blackness and Britishness.
