Pro Dancer: Shae Mountain
When it comes to punchlines, funny girl Laura Daniel never misses a beat - but will her impeccable comedic timing translate to the dancefloor?
Trading jokes for jives, Laura comes to Dancing with the Stars with a long history of keeping people entertained. The ‘Palmy proud’ comedy queen has been a regular feature on Kiwi screens for many years as part of the core cast of Three’s much-loved Funny Girls and Jono & Ben as well as a regular guest panelist on 7 Days.
Laura, who is a two-times Billy T award nominee, is also part of the musical comedy duo Two Hearts alongside partner & co-writer Joseph Moore. The pair have performed their theatrical spectacular to audiences in Auckland, Melbourne and Edinburgh.
No stranger to putting on a good show, the multi-talented comedian is ready to take to the dancefloor and show New Zealand an endearing new side to her.
Laura says of her foray into the world of competitive dancing: “Even though I’ve only been dancing for like a week, the Dancing with the Stars team already consider me a professional dancer - can’t wait to see what celebrity they give me!”
