Daniels is coming to Dumfries.

The Martin Daniels Comedy Show is set to thrill audiences at Dumfries Theatre Royal.

Magician, comedian and writer, Martin, is hailed as a "spectacular stage and screen performer, captivating audiences with his uproarious sense of humour, charming personality and consummate magical skill."

The son of legendary TV magician Paul Daniels, Martin harboured ambitions to become a performer from a young age and took the plunge into showbusiness aged 17 with a summer season in Newquay.

He was thrust into the limelight presenting one of Britain's biggest TV programmes of the 1980s, Game for a Laugh.

He went on to host ITV game show, Lingo and became a presenter on CITV. Next came five series on the BBC's BAFTA nominated Les Dennis' Laughter Show.

The stage has always been a second home to Martin and he has toured with performers of the calibre of Jane McDonald, Lenny Henry, Les Dennis and MC Hammer, as well as making five appearances on The Royal Variety Performance.

One of his biggest appearances to date was taking part in the VE Day Concert in Hyde Park attended by the Queen and Prince Philip, plus an audience of 150,000 others.

Martin's unique blend of magic and comedy has proven incredibly popular with audiences across the UK and he will be at the Theatre Royal on September 29.
