I'm Daniel an Edinburgh based stand-up comedian and this is my comedy walking tour of Edinburgh. The tour is a mixture of stand-up comedy and historical story telling that's both 'hysterical' and 'historical', you'll laugh a lot and learn a little.!!

My name is Daniel I am an Edinburgh based stand-up comedian and this is my comedy walking tour of Edinburgh leaving from Monkey Barrel Comedy Club on Blair Street in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town.

The tour is a mixture of stand-up comedy and historical story telling. I try not to get too bogged down in dates and names and instead tell stories that you will hopefully remember and regale your friends and family with back home!

Why do they fire a massive cannon every lunch time at 1 o'clock? Is the Unicorn really Scotland's national animal? Why are so many of Edinburgh's pubs named after brutal murderers? Do they really eat deep-fired mars bars in Scotland?

I'll tell you everything you want to know about Edinburgh and possibly a little you didn't want to know about me! Come along and have a bit of craic and let me show you around the most beautiful city in the world
