Some of the Hottest Comedy Talent around.....

Colm McDonnell  

Colm McDonnell:

This hilarious comic hobbit from Dundalk has been bouncing around the Irish comedy circuit for the past few years. He has performed regularly in top comedy clubs and venues throughout Ireland and the U.K, and has been firmly established as one of the best in the business! His set is energetic, full of fun and bursting with enthusiasm!
A bright and illustrious career in comedy awaits him.


Eric Lalor:

Eric LalorEric toured as Des Bishop's support during his record breaking Fitting In Tour 2005/2006. Winner of Best newcomer Award 2005 in Comedy Cellar and Capital Comedy Club. Invited to the very first Galway Comedy Festival April 06. Appeared at the Smithwicks Cat Laughs festival in Kilkenny, June'06. His vibrant, super energised stage presence connects with the audience and his material mesmerises until the end. We’ve never seen a crowd react so emphatically to one of our acts. Where else you’re likely to see Eric. Tesco Ballymun or ‘Joy in the Hood’ RTE.

"Excellent, belly achingly funny, fast moving." - Kilkenny People


Jarlath Regan


Jarlath Regan:

Jarlath Regan has hosted and performed at corporate events for some of Ireland's top companies including Arthur Cox Solicitors, Shell and BMW Ireland. His brand of clean, good-natured observational comedy has seen him become one of the most popular headline acts in comedy clubs throughout Ireland; earn invitations to the Montreal, Edinburgh and Kilkenny Comedy Festivals; and support Neil Delemare, Ardal O'Hanlon, Des Bishop and Jason Byrne on their Irish tours.  The Irish Times calls him a "comedy genius"; Hot Press says, "he is the best young talent in Dublin.... brilliant, definitely one to watch."  A finalist in the BBC and Channel 4 new comedy awards, Jarlath will make his Irish television debut this summer with his very own TV show on TV3.  Catch him while you can.


John Lynn:

John LynnA few years ago John Lynn visited the Comedy Cellar in Dublin and thought ‘I could do that’. This isn’t unusual. A lot of people think that. Most of them can’t. John could. That’s why he’s fast becoming one of the most sought after acts in the country.
John’s easy going laid back delivery makes him an instant hit with audiences. Within months of starting stand up John appeared on TV screens in RTE’s ‘Liffey Laugh’s’ a remarkable feat for a newcomer almost unheard of in stand up circles. Last year John appeared on the BBC’s ‘One Night Stand’.
John has spent the last year constantly performing. He completed his first full Edinburgh festival run in 2006. He is the first choice as an opening act for Naked Camera’s PJ Gallagher and has just completed an Irish tour.

“A brilliant comic brain….this stand-up cracks some of the best one-liners I’ve ever heard” – William Cook / The Guardian

“The highlight of the evening was Stewart Francis from Canada. He had the audience in stitches, just waiting in anticipation for his next one-liner” – Ryan Fortune / Cape Times


Damien Clark: (Australian)

Damien_clarkDamian Clark is one of the most exciting comics to emerge from Australia in recent years. His enthusiastic and consistently energetic storytelling has captivated people all across Australia and is now based in Dublin while he treks across the UK and European circuit. After several tours around Oz and national TV stand-up appearances where he was labelled ‘the future of Australian comedy’ (The Comedy Channel), Damian moved to Dublin in search for more laughs and a ‘proper pint of Guinness’.

In doing so, Damian was voted ‘The Number 1 event to see’ & ‘cream of the crop’ (InDublin Magazine) within only months of moving to Ireland. Notably his ability to target everyday observations culturally as a source of humour immediately builds a great rapport with every audience.

‘there is barely a bad word to say about Clark: distinctive and possessing a comic talent beyond his years, both biological and mental’ – chortle.co.uk

Sarah Millican  

Sarah Millican: (British)

While relatively new to the circuit, Sarah has established herself as a crowd pleasing act with well written material and a gentle delivery style which disguises her cutting observations on life, love and moving back in with your parents.
A regular at the Funny Bones Comedy Clubs, Stand Up Live and various gigs around the North East, Sarah is a prolific writer. Armed with her wit, an abundance of smelly gel pens and a specially bought travel sponge, Sarah is about to venture beyond where her metro pass takes her and tell the country about her curtains. No, really.

“One of the best new acts I’ve seen in quite some time” – John Scott , Stand Up Live

“She had the audience roaring in recognition”” – BBC Tees
