Danny, who shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent, wrote The Non-Essential Worker earlier this year and recounts his rise through the comedy ranks and the effects of lockdown when all his live gigs were cancelled.

But with the easing of restrictions, including theatres, Danny is starting to return to the stage and making audiences laugh in person once again.

This week fans will be able to see him in town and get their hands on a signed copy at the book’s official launch.

It takes place on Thursday, May 27, at the Out Out bar at Navigation Point, on Hartlepool Marina.

Danny, who reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2015, said: “As the book is called The Non-Essential Worker I thought why don’t I promote other non-essential workers and launch it in this new bar.

"It is all to help get it out there and also celebrate the fact that we are coming out of lockdown.”

Customers will get a free glass of bubbly on arrival and be greeted at the door by Danny as Boris Johnson who has been a familiar face around Hartlepool in the last couple of months.

Danny will launch his book at the Out Out bar on Navigation Point at Hartlepool marina.

He will then talk about the book and tease some of the stories in it before answering questions and signing complimentary copies.

Appropriately, the name of the bar is a nod to a routine by stand up comedian Micky Flanagan, who Danny recently impersonated in an online video to promote the venue ahead of pubs and bars’ grand reopening on May 17.

Danny was pleased to get back on the road performing live again this week with a gig at Seton Sands, in Scotland.

He said: “It was so nice to be back and felt so good. It was so nice to do it in Scotland too, I love the Scottish crowds, they’re always up for it.

“Let’s keep it open and for good.”

Tickets for the book launch are £20 available through

Social distancing will be in place and the event will meet government guidelines. Ticket holders should arrive at 7pm.
