Dara O'Briain


Dara O'Briain is the busiest man in Irish comedy these days, juggling his roles as one of RTE's big stars at home, with his growing reputation as a stand-up around the world. Having made himself a household name in Ireland from his contributions to Don't Feed the Gondolas, the satirical panel show, he then stepped into the mainstream limelight with the hit mid-evening show It's a Family Affair.

At the same time he has travelled the globe bringing his sell-out comedy shows to audiences from Edinburgh to Adelaide, and from Dubai to Shanghai. He is currently dividing his year between London and the English and European circuits, a second tour of Australia, numerous Irish commitments, and, of course, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

This stand-up work makes him a regular on television's top stand-up showcases, including the BBC's Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Stand-up Show, and The Empire Laughs Back; RTE's The Lounge; and Channel 5's Bring me the Head of Light Entertainment.

Dara is also highly in demand as a Master of Ceremonies in Ireland. When starting out he was extremely popular during his residencies as MC at both the largest comedy club in Dublin and in Cork.
