Catch the next one:
Aisling Comedy Benefit 20th Birthday Party: Ardal O'Hanlon, Dara O Briain, Ed Byrne, Ian Stone, Aisling Bea, Abandoman
Supporting the Irish homeless charity and hosted by Aisling patron Ardal O’ Hanlon, featuring some of the best established and up-and-coming names in Irish and British stand-up.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Although best known for his starring roles in the sitcoms, Father Ted (for which he won a British Comedy Award and a BAFTA nomination) and My Hero, Ardal's other TV comedy dramas include Big Bad World, Blessed, Skins and Dr Who. He has appeared on his own Dave's One Night Stand and more recently on Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. Ardal has even found the time to write a book, his best-selling novel Talk Of The Town features in the book '1001 Books to Read Before You Die'. However it is as a stand-up comedian where Ardal's true vocation lies. He sees his role in life as 'highlighting the ridiculous'. Avoiding the overly crass and the obvious, his only interest is the truth… if there is such a thing.
Ardal O'Hanlon tour dates
One of Ireland's funniest comedians, who produces laughs like a magician produces rabbits from a hat.
With a reputation as a stand-up around the world, including an appearance at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, he originally made a name for himself in Ireland on the satirical panel show Don't Feed the Gondolas and then stepped into the mainstream limelight with the hit show It's A Family Affair.
Currently to be seen presenting the BBC's topical panel show Mock The Week.
'One of the most dependably entertaining stand-up comics in the land' (The Times)
'Worked the stalls like a puppet master' (Evening Standard)
'O Briain has a laser eye for the absurd and the spurious' (The Guardian).

The master of observational comedy, Ed's many TV appearances over the last couple of years have included hosting Live At The Apollo and being a regular panellist on Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You, as well as various other new comedy shows including Miranda Harts Christmas Unwrapped. A sucker for a quiz, particular recent highlights for Ed have been taking part in Celebrity Mastermind and being a contestant on Celebrity Pointless. Ed is also a regular contributor to comedy and music shows on both BBC Radio 2 and 4 and 6 Music.
