Daniel could easily be described as the ideal Aussie comedian; affable, loveable and hilarious. His observational, dry, often unanticipated comedy has seen him take to stages all over the country.
In 2021 Daniel made his third appearance on the Oxfam Gala (ABC). He also took his show ‘I’ve Had A Flare Up’ to every Australian festival, and on a national tour.

Tor Snyder is a comedic force here to win the hearts of every Australian she meets. But don’t let the adorable Canadian accent fool you. This filthy, yet endearing, comedian doesn’t hold back, she’s full of “a whole lot of sass and a whole lot of crass” and not sorry about it After being hand picked to host the 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s prestigious ‘Comedy Zone’, Snyder is quickly becoming one of Australia’s best up and coming comedians. Her solo show, Tor Snyder Horse Rider, sold out and won The West Australian Newspaper Award at Fringe World 2021.
