Dara O Briain appearing at this event

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a reputation as a stand-up around the world, including an appearance at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, he originally made a name for himself in Ireland on the satirical panel show Don't Feed the Gondolas and then stepped into the mainstream limelight with the hit show It's A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).

Joe Wilkinson

Joe Wilkinson appearing at this event

Winner of the Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year 2006, Joe is a critically acclaimed standup and comedy talent, most recently portraying the wonderfully creepy Dan in the smash hit new BBC Three sitcom Him And Her. Joe has also made star appearances on Russell Howard's Good News and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. 'An absolute natural, marrying Stewart Lee style joke deconstruction to scathing one-liners worthy of Jack Dee... undoubtedly destined for greatness' - Evening Standard. 'A natural gag-smith who looks so comfortable behind a mic stand you'd be forgiven for thinking he'd been doing stand up for a decade' - The Guardian.

Jarlath Regan

Jarlath Regan appearing at this event

A former advertising executive who turned to comedy when his unmarketable greetings card ideas got him the sack, Irishman Jarleth Regan is a jack of all trades and all round decent fella, the kind you could take home to meet your mum. Raised on the windswept plains of the Curragh of Kildare he dreamed of being a professional basketball player but shelved the ambition due to combination of injuries and on the early on-set of cop on. The NBAs loss has been stand-up comedy's gain. 'A subtle yet sublime helping of observational humour' (The Herald) 'Side-splitting stuff... causes near hysteria in the room' (The Metro) 'A refreshing and hilarious change of pace' (The Independent) 'While he's not as well-known as some Irish stand-ups, he's every bit as talented' (Sunday Express) 'He has a skilful way with words and a playful misplaced logic' (Chortle).
