Seann Walsh

Seann Walsh wanted to be a stand-up comedian from the age of 10. In this show, he tells us how he got here, from growing up in Brighton to gathering a slew of TV credits and glowing reviews, to becoming a tabloid villain. This fresh show mixes some of his best loved routines with new candid stories from the last ten years.

Seann has many acting credits including Comedy Central’s sitcom Big Bad World, the lead role in Monks (BBC One), Three Kinds of Stupid (Sky) and Jack Dee’s sitcom Bad Move (ITV). He also wrote and starred in his own Sky short for Sky Arts which led to him producing, writing and starring in his own silent comedy web-series The Drunk. Seann is quickly on his way to becoming one of the UK’s best comedy character actors.

Other TV credits include Virtually Famous (Channel 4), Play To The Whistle (ITV), One For The Road (BBC 3), Live At The Apollo (BBC 2), The Jonathan Ross Show (ITV), Tonight at The London Palladium (ITV), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), Alan Carr’s Chatty Man (Channel 4) and Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central)

Andrew Ryan

Corkonian Andrew Ryan’s storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanour makes him a natural observational stand-up and one of the most in-demand acts on the UK comedy circuit. The Irishman has performed stand-up on Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Comedy Central at The Comedy Store, and Funny Rotten Scoundrels.

Andrew has also made appearances on TV3’s The 6 O’Clock Show and BBC1 NI’s The Blame Game. Earlier this year, Andrew’s latest offering Sure, You Know Yourself won ‘Best New Show’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards.

Therese Cahill

Therese Cahill is Ireland’s first female “limp-up” comic, singer, songwriter, actress, writer, mother, former life model and reluctant temp! With the cheekiest of grins, she reels off songs written somewhere deep within a slightly corrupt yet (mostly) harmless mind, all done with the smile that would win over even the most hardened of psychopaths! She’s the perfect mix of warmth and devilment! As seen on Ireland’s Got Talent.


Karl Spain

Our shows are hosted by the “achingly funny Karl Spain

Karl has been in stand-up comedy for over twenty years. Last seen on telly hosting Laughter In The Eyre filmed at Galway Comedy Festival in 2019, Karl is probably best known in Ireland for losing a few ounces on Celebrity Operation Transformation, and his TV series Karl Spain Wants A Woman in which he not only got huge ratings but he also found himself a woman.

As well as being a regular at Róisín Dubh, Galway Comedy Festival, Vodafone Comedy Festival Dublin, Kilkenny Cat Laughs, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Montréal Just for Laughs, Karl was a resident writer for Republic of Telly and still is for countless other comedians.
