Damian Kingsley (Comedian‪)‬ The Comedy Defect

    • Comedy

Damian is a professional stand up comic, although his friends would probably describe him as an unfunny, deluded prick. He did his first few gigs in Japan years ago when he lived in Tokyo, working as an English teacher and translator. He returned to the UK in 2008 and started working regularly on the UK circuit from 2009. Since then he has performed up and down the country, been in several competition finals, run a few gigs and has been at Edinburgh, Leicester and Brighton fringe festivals although his first one-hour solo show, Knock Knock, will be in 2016. He made the leap into full-time comedy in 2015. Style-wise, he mainly does stories and anecdotal material.
