Glasgow born and bred Daniel Petrie is a newly qualified doctor (officially starting with the NHS on 2 August) who despite having made relatively few on-stage appearances due to COVID as well as his studies, was a finalist in the So You Think You’re Funny as well as the Chortle Student Comedy Awards in 2023. In July that same year he appeared on the Latitude Festival comedy stage (as a result of the latter achievement) and in September he taped a set for the BBC New Comedy Awards.
In August 2023, Daniel started work as a junior doctor the day before he performed his first show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, sharing the stage with fellow Scottish stand-up Jack Traynor.
Daniel is also the 2023 winner of the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award.
