Cradle To The Stage is his first ever tour: "The stage has always been my first love. Let me put that another way. I have never done anything like this before in my life."
The 59 year-old is an English comedy writer, journalist, radio DJ and screenwriter. His recent output has seen an award winning sitcom and best selling autobiography raise interest in the man himself: "There's no script and I"m pretty good company, but that"s all this is."
Danny is well up for this uncharted challenge:
"To travel from town to town addressing a fabulous gathering of like-minded chums each night seems to me exactly what Shakespeare would have done, had not the hefty rent at The Globe kept him in London.
David Baddiel in Conversation with Danny Baker
"As a consequence, William Shakespeare toured about as frequently as Kate Bush. Well not me.
"I own very few theatres anymore and so I am now totally free to charge about here and there wowing the folks with my anecdotal back catalogue, games involving sausages and impressive six octave range."
Danny is also asking for help from those intending to dip into this evening's lucky dip:
"If you've read my books, watched the series based on them or, indeed, ever caught anything I have presented on television/radio then maybe you might contribute to the feast of reason and flow of the soul that I guarantee these evenings will contain questions like:
"Did your friend really eat saveloys from a pith helmet?" or "What was meeting John Lennon/Michael Jackson/David Bowie/Kenneth Williams like?" or, I suspect, most popular of all "How comes you've made so many rotten TV programs, Dan?"
Danny, who has never been lost for words, promises:
"I will of course arrive in front of you going off like a Cacophonous Catherine Wheel of Chat, armed with hundreds of tall tales to tell many complete with proof from my family picture album to stop you thinking I am simply raving.
"I've been at this showman racket a full 40 years now my friends – there is truly much to discuss and plenty to be held to account for."
