Damien Slash is the pseudonym for comedian, voice-artist and actor Daniel Barker. I originally came up with the pseudonym when I was sixteen to promote my comedy on Myspace and stuck with it to keep my audience.
In 2012 I started broadcasting my comedy characters and writing on my YouTube channel which has wangled over 1,5 million hits and 12,000 subscribers.
After several years of development, I eventually made The Damien Slash Mixtape Series One & Two for BBC Radio 4.
What I've Worked On As An Actor
After a doing show at Edinburgh Festival 2015 I went to film my first TV appearance as 'Darren' in Camping, on Sky Atlantic written and directed by Julia Davis. I appeared in numerous roles in Red Dwarf series 11 & 12. In 2017 I played a parody you-tuber in PLS LIKE and a gamer geek in Sexy Murder along side Rich Fulcher.
I am the voice of the notorious Silly Sausage toy that has sold ten million units to date and been featured on Johnathon Ross and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
I played Zeke Von Genbu in the Nintendo relase of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. In 2019 I appeared in roles in the shows Not Going Out, Fully Blown, Doomed and Stath Lets Flats.
This year I also appear as Ron Hubbard the pig in the stop frame animation feature film STRIKE
I've collaborated on projects for BBC, RoughCut Productions, Waner Bros, Roll7, Nintendo, BBC, John Smith Toys, Ardman, Comic Relief and Amazon.
I also performed all the characters for the PlayStation game NOT A HERO from BAFTA award winning game developers Roll 7.
