Caro meets Daniel Muggleton

“Australian comedian and tracksuit enthusiast Daniel Muggleton’s just woke enough to know he’s an asshole. But who wants to be a hero these days anyway?”

That’s what the official blurb for Daniel Muggleton’s 2019 Edinburgh show will tell you. But don’t let the fact that he claims to be an asshole put you off: he is, in fact, a talented comedian who has been impressing the UK comedy scene with his quality headline sets in recent times, and online viewers with his Amazon special ‘Let’s Never Hang Out’.

I arranged a quick chat, to find out more about him and how this year’s Fringe is working out.

CM: Let’s start by talking about the show you are performing at the Fringe this year. What’s it all about?
DM: It’s a show about remembering that where you’re at is more important than what’s happening in front of you. Which sounds deep but it’s really me just trying to explain how I really enjoyed a Coldplay concert but will never listen to them on Spotify.

Edinburgh Fringe 2019: 4 Great Free Fringe Shows

So it turns out Daniel Muggleton also has a law degree. That was unlikely and makes the entry above this look kind of silly and uninformed. The odds on this really were very low. Lawyers are, generally speaking, not funny.

Anyway, not-a-lawyer Daniel Muggleton is a UK-based, Australia-born comedian with a new Fringe show about some of the many differences between the two, as well as some of the things that unite them – like racism and misogyny. He is, in fact, very funny.

He delves into serious matters in good faith and with real perceptiveness, but never allows the weight of it all to drag him below the easy-going, no worries style that befits a comedian in a bright red tracksuit. Click Here For Article


August 13, 2019    The Scotsman

Dry, caustic and unsparing, Australian émigré Daniel Muggleton is a deceptively sharp, informed social commentator in a tracksuit, with offbeat analyses of Brexit, racism and misogyny.

Likening his appearance and manner to that of an undercover agent, he’s avowedly aware of the struggles of women and minorities, but happily benefiting from the patriarchy and white privilege all the same.

With his motives and principles so thoroughly compromised, he can be damning of his adopted home, his opening musings on the UK leaving Europe, the NHS and Royal Family archly witty, though essentially an extended diss on Brits’ lack of physical attractiveness.

Australia’s infamous immigration policies don’t escape his condemnation. But Muggleton suggests that he’s only really judgemental for the pastime of testing his perceptiveness, rather than any great political point-scoring. He’s wryly amused rather than energised by wokeness’ appropriation by multinational companies with dubious labour practices. And he’s matter-of-fact highlighting the source of toxic masculinity that prompted the #MeToo movement. With minimal grandstanding, indeed, supreme casualness, Muggleton shares his opinions understatedly, effectively and with real promise for his stand-up career going forward. Click Here For Review
