Profession: Writer



Danny Robins is an English comedy writer and performer, broadcaster and journalist.


Robins began his comedy career as a teenager doing stand-up in his home town of Newcastle upon Tyne, where he was friends with Ross Noble, and later at Bristol University as part of the trio "Club Seals" with Marcus Brigstocke and Dan Tetsell. Club Seals' spoof archaeology programme We Are History (BBC Two, 2000) was followed by an adaptation of their Edinburgh Fringe Show The Museum of Everything for BBC Radio 4. The radio sitcom Rudy's Rare Records was written with Tetsell and Lenny Henry and adapted for the stage in 2014. Other comedy writing credits include That Was Then, This Is Now (2004), Armando Iannucci's Gash (2003) and The Basil Brush Show (2007).

The CBBC comedy Young Dracula, also written with Dan Tetsell, ran for five series between 2006 and 2014. A one-off sitcom episode "Monks" was written by Robins for the sixteenth series of the BBC's Comedy Playhouse in 2014. His Radio 4 sitcom The Cold Swedish Winter (2014) was inspired by meeting his Swedish wife, Eva, in 2005, and his subsequent time spent in the country.

Robins' interest in the supernatural has led to him writing and researching several radio series and podcasts on the subject. He created the podcast Haunted for Panoply in 2017. For BBC Radio 4 and BBC Sounds, he wrote and presented The Battersea Poltergeist (2021), followed by Uncanny later in 2021 and The Witch Farm in 2022. His play 2:22 A Ghost Story starring Lily Allen won Best New Play at the 2022 WhatsOnStage Awards. Uncanny launched as a TV series on 13 October 2023 on BBC Two, written and presented by Robins. He was also an executive producer on the series.

GlobalEng.biz pays special attention to the activities of famous people: politicians, officials, businessmen, bankers, cultural and sports figures. Their opinion largely determines the development of the political, social and economic life of England and the United Kingdom. The section is constantly edited by our journalists for the relevance of the information. Here you can find information about the CEOs and presidents of top companies in England, officials and public figures who play a key role in the development of the region.
The goal of the project is to create a comfortable information space for all market participants, as well as to introduce the readership to business people in England.
We have created an impressive database of people in England, which contains information about the career path, education and other important information about a person.
Thanks to the automatic calculation of the number of mentions of a person in the news sections "English news" and "English press releases", a rating of the popularity and influence of persons is formed on the portal. The team GlobalEng.biz monitors changes in the rating and encourages project participants for their success. In general, the rating of participants is based on an in-depth analysis of the activity of PR services of famous people, and also reflects the qualitative state of the information field formed by the media and press services around the organization.
"Business people of England" is a project about people who, with their ideas, words and actions, have a great influence on the development and prosperity of England.
