Danielle Ward is a British stand-up comedian and writer.


In 2006 Ward won the Time Out's Critic's Choice award for Best Newcomer and wrote Take A Break Tales - exaggerated adaptations of women's magazine stories - in which she appeared with Neil Edmond, Emma Fryer and Isy Suttie at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The next year she co-wrote Psister Psycho - a musical about a killer robotic lesbian nun - with Martin White for the 2007 Edinburgh Festival which was a cult hit and was nominated for the Chortle Award for Best Full Length Show 2008. She was also a regular member of Robin Ince's Book Club where she performed under the guise of Andy McNab, Heather Mills McCartney, Adam Ant and David Bowie.

Ward has written for many radio shows including The News Quiz, The Now Show, The Lee Mack Show, Look Away Now and Day the Music Died. She also wrote one whole joke for the BAFTA award winning Harry Hill's TV Burp. She is known for her dark and idiosyncratic writing and was the holder of the prestigious BBC Radio writers bursary 2006-2007. Ward also featured on Newswipe with Charlie Brooker for BBC Four.

Ward is one of Dave Gorman's co-presenters on his Absolute Radio Sunday morning show, alongside Gorman and Martin White.
