New Old Time Chautauqua thinks of Godfrey Daniels as one of our own. We’ve met his family and learned his ways. We’ve come to know what frustrates him and what makes him happy. We’ve seen him struggle and we’ve seen him succeed. What must it be like for an audience to meet him for the first time? A theater reviewer in LA saw him in a Variete show and said that his part “… was singularly the most charming part of the show. It was a Shel Silverstein poem brought to life.” If this year is your first Moisture Festival, if you are going to meet Godfrey Daniels for the first time … you are SO lucky, I wish I was you.

Since 1999, the surprising and compelling Godfrey Daniels has delighted audiences throughout the United States and Europe.

With the naïveté of a child and the world-weariness of a philosopher, Godfrey evokes instant laughter in his viewers. 

The mere presence of Godfrey encompasses a panorama of moods from concern to embarrassment, curiosity to hilarity, and all of this without the utterance of a single word.

His props are minimal and his actions spare, but Godfrey captivates his fans with his subtle and whimsical sense of humor and uncanny appearance.

Playful, yet statuesque, this gentle giant inspires awe and captures hearts wherever he goes. 

His timeless and universal appeal set him apart from other iconic figures of the entertainment world. 

Godfrey Daniels is a favorite among audiences of all ages.
