About Danny WallaceEdit
Danny Wallace, or just plain Danny as we like to call him, is the sole author of two book, Join Me and Yes Man. He also presents and produces, recently hosting Conspiracies on Sky One. His latest venture is Citizens Required.
As a journalist, Danny has worked for The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Star, Melody Maker, Total Film, Total Football, T3, .net and dozens of others. He has reported from cities as far afield as Shanghai, New York, Warsaw, Prague, Cape Town, and Singapore.
He started at 13, writing reviews for videogames mags like Sega Power and Super Play. At 18 he then began writing about entertainment and comedy, mainly through the magazine Comedy Review.
As a writer, he has penned various scripts and pilots for the BBC. He was part of the original team behind the British Comedy Award-winning Dead Ringers, writes for the Sony Award-winning Sunday Format, and produced the critically acclaimed cult radio hit The Mighty Boosh, for Radio 4. He has worked with British comedians Ross Noble and Tony Hawks, but is perhaps best known for his work with Dave Gorman, with whom he co-wrote the cult book Are You Dave Gorman?.
In 2003, he wrote the book Join Me, about how he started the 'cult' of that name. The popular quote is that "it's not a cult, it's a collective", because Danny did not want to encourage the wrong ideas - however, he has begrudgingly admited that it is, hence the book's cover blurb: "The true story of a man who started a cult by accident."
In 2005, King Danny decided to start a new country.
