Quotes:
“Daryl Perry has a Welsh lilt so soft you could use it to buff the Higgs-Boson Particle and a sense of humour drier than a scorpion’s gnash” The Haddock
“Like a trim Welsh, bearded, bespectacled, still alive Barry White, Daryl Perry brought smooth tones and big punchlines to the evening… a firm favourite with our effusive crowd.” Fat Controller Comedy
“[Daryl Perry] had a little more fun with the persona, with misplaced boasts and an ill-advised wardrobe, while offering a few offbeat ideas in the Welsh accent that works wonders for slightly otherworldly material… of all the deadpan comics tonight, he displayed more flashes of possibility than the average” Chortle review of Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2012
“Perry won the crowd over with some great observational humour and a laid-back set” Mid Devon Gazette
“With a demeanour more suited to a World War Two vintage bottle top collector who lives only with his classic Heinz baked bean tins and tropical reptiles, Daryl lets us into the trippy dour world of a ‘legend’ elect.” Welsh Unsigned Stand Up Award 2013 Clips:
