Comments: In the middle of a performance, if a tangent presents itself and has the potential of being funnier than what ever the show was ‘supposed to be,’ it can be a ticket to adventure! For a gutsy performer with a gift for improvisation these sorts of opportunities can lead to the strangest of places in the name of comedy.
When Daniel Oldaker ended up in a tree with out his ‘hat,’ it was only one of the misadventures on a day when the irresistible urge to play outside of his normal script presented itself.
Oldie sat down with Magic Brian to share some of his bare-bottomed exuberance for creating spectacle and taking a joke as far as it can possibly go. Thankfully the results delighted spectators and Daniel was able to avoid any serious repercussions while establishing himself as a bit of a legend in the process.
