The irresistibly amiable John Ryan uses his acerbic wit and seemingly encyclopaedic knowledge of the world around him to keep any audience on their toes. His East End Irish upbringing gives him the rare ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds.
No stranger to either the strange or the norm, he will put an amusing spin on any subject matter going. An already established writer he undertook a new venture in 2006 as one half of the duo him 'n' im, and he penned an 'unofficial' World Cup ditty, 'We're going to do quite well .. injury permitting!', which received radio play up and down the country'.
Alongside his successful career as a stand-up comedian, John is in high demand for his hilarious health-related humour. “If you can make people laugh, you can make people listen” says John, and laugh they do.
John Ryan tour dates
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).
Jarlath Regan tour dates
Dark and disturbing one-liner comedian, dispensing decrees, decrying disarmingly, and disgorging diatribes on death and drugs, delivered in a deadpan style. In his first Edinburgh Festival Show, he appeared as a funeral director!
He has appeared on numerous TV programmes, including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC1), Celebrity Deal or no Deal (CH 4), and Harry Hill’s TV Burp (ITV). He has also been a contributor for The Guardian and written for Time Out, The List and Match of the Day Magazine and was support for Lee Mack on a huge theatre tour.
'One of the 10 leading stand-ups in Britain' (Independent on Sunday).
Mike Gunn tour dates
