Daniel Howell is one of the world’s most popular online personalities. Since starting on YouTube back in 2009, he has successfully bridged the gap to mainstream recognition as a New York Times and Sunday Times best-selling author, BBC Radio 1 DJ, TV presenter, interviewer and festival-headliner.
In 2016 and 2018, alongside his good friend Phil Lester, he also produced and starred in two global tours ‘The Amazing Tour Is Not On Fire’ and ‘Interactive Introverts’ each with over 80 global shows, playing at prestigious venues such as the London Palladium, Beacon Theatre on Broadway and the Dolby Theatre Hollywood.
Dan is also proud to be an ambassador for Young Minds, a UK charity which provides free mental health support to young people.
We spoke to Dan whilst at the BBC Writers Room retreat and got to hear a bit more about his reflections on a decade on YouTube, his creative ventures and how he feels he is evolving as a performer and writer.
