Doubt along with comic Dane
Critically acclaimed comedian Dane Baptiste is bringing his hit new show Reasonable Doubts to Luton Library Theatre on Wednesday April 13.
Dane has just finished recording his own BBC Three sitcom, Sunny D, and has recently appeared on Live at the Apollo.
Since last August it has been non-stop for Dane. He enjoyed success with his debut show Citizen Dane, which saw him nominated for Best Newcomer in both the Foster’s Comedy Awards and again in this year’s Chortle, and has completed two sold out runs at The Soho Theatre.
As if that’s not enough, he has written and starred in his own sitcom pilot for BBC3 alongside numerous other TV and radio appearances and performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
Now Dane is on his own UK tour of Reasonable Doubts, which has already been met with sold-out audiences and critical acclaim.
His new show is all about doubt. Dane’s life has changed in the last 12 months, and he has achieved things that he had previously only ever dreamt about.
But now he has doubts and is questioning everythin, including his status as a black comic. Dane tells the audience that being the ‘token’ gets you no respect from either side of the colour lines.
He claims that with the advent of reality TV it seems that no one wants a regular career – everyone wants to be famous. Each generation preaches to the other. No one cares about religion anymore, – we all worship technology. He has doubts about where we are going as a civilization.
Dane has doubts that he’ll ever have a successful relationship. But he admits that maybe he’s thinking about it too much.
As well as Live at the Apollo (BBC1) Dane was recently seen on Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala (Network Ten, Australia) Listomania (BBC Radio 2), Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC3), Virtually Famous (E4) Safeword (ITV2) and Celebrity Squares (ITV1).
Previous credits include Seann Walsh s Comedy Spectacular (BBC3), Live from The Comedy Store (Comedy Central) and the Comedy Marathon (BBC3).
His radio credits include Comic Fringes (Radio 4), Radio 1: Live from the Fringe as well as Phil and Alice Comedy Loz.
Dane’s Luton show starts at 8pm. Tickets are £10 or £8 concessions. Booking fees may apply.
