More information about Daniel Foxx: Villain tickets

What’s a little evil amongst friends? Fresh from a complete sell-out extended run at the Edinburgh Fringe, award-winning gossip and TikTok starlet Daniel Foxx delivers a sensational show about childhood, Tilda Swinton and bullying (but in a chic way).

With his trademark wit and grandmother's pearls, he's taking us back to the 2000s, when the Special K diet was all the rage and the only queer representation was Jafar.

As seen on BBC One, BBC Three, Comedy Central UK and on Instagram and TikTok. Tour support for Josh Widdicombe, Rosie Jones, Sofie Hagen and Judi Love.

Nominated for the NextUp BIGGEST Award in Comedy at Edinburgh Fringe 2023, officially recommended by British Comedy Guide and featured in Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of the Fringe 2023.
