About Me

Danny is an experienced comedy writer. He created the hugely successful BAFTA-nominated and RTS Award-winning BBC series Young Dracula, the cult BBC 2 series We Are History and BBC1 Comedy Playhouse sitcom Monks. He has worked on a host of other shows, most recently writing on Series 2 of Comedy Central sitcom I Live With Models, Sky 1's Trollied and BBC3's upcoming A Brief History of Tim.

He co-created the hit sitcom Rudy's Rare Records with Sir Lenny Henry, writing four series of it for BBC Radio 4 and a recent TV pilot for BBC1. He is a Radio Award winner, who has created several successful BBC Radio 4 series, including The Museum of Everything, Paperback Hell and Danny Robins Music Therapy. Currently, he has created, written and appeared in new sitcom The Cold Swedish Winter (“A sweet Richard Curtis-ish delight: the kind of thing you could imagine transferring effortlessly to TV” – The Guardian).

His stage play of Rudy's Rare Records for Birmingham Rep and Hackney Empire was a critically-lauded sell out success (“A stonking hit” – The Guardian). He is currently writing a new play for a major West End producer.

He has also presented various programmes for TV and Radio, including Let's Make a Baby for BBC 3's Mischief strand, The Bullsh*t Detective, BBC2's The Culture Show and Newsnight's election coverage.

He once had a Number 11 hit single and came second in the UK Air Guitar Championship Final – he was robbed.
