Daly was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on 23 August 1887, making his first stage appearance in Swansea, Wales in 1906. Six years later, in 1912, he made his first London stage appearance at the Shaftesbury Theatre. For three years he was the principal comedian at The Fred Karno Company, a collection of comedians who worked in both British variety and American Vaudeville.[2] Other "Karno Comedians" included Charlie Chaplin and Billie Ritchie.[3] During his time as an actor Daly took part in excess of 25 motion pictures before his death on 27 September 1957 in England.
