- "...incredibly funny and engaging..." - Trip Advisor
- "...hilarious as he interacts with audience." - Trip Advisor
- "...The audience was made up of at least 8 nationalities and Connors ability to engage with each person in the room made it feel all the welcoming. We will be back..." - Trip Advisor.
- "...the man with the longest name/craziest eyes in comedy..." - Danny O' Hanlon
o "His comedy is bizarre, bold and (un)balanced - he's an arguably debatable spectator tempter. Connor will have you laughing away as he deals with the debaucherous topics that present themselves daily. The stimulating humdrum thoughts that arouse bemusement. And the oddball anecdotes that evoke howls, from the mouths, on your face. There's a means to his madcap manoeuvres."

 

Cian McGarrigle

He is the creator of the award-winning show Burning Wishes starring Colum McDonnell, Mark Doherty and Barry Murphy. He has written for Republic of Telly, Red Rock and the upcoming RTE comedy Nowhere Fast. His stand-up has been described as "hilariously self-loathing" and "strangely fish-centric."

"Extremely funny" - Evening Herald.

 


Michael Rice
Michael, originally from a farm in Kilkenny, has recently returned home from doing 2 years of comedy in Chicago where he was hailed as "hard to understand". He returned to Ireland due to his love of his native soil, and because his mother made him.

 

 

 

 

Aidan Shields (MC)
Despite being a finalist in Show Me The Funny comedy competitions in 2015 & 2016, headlining the Comedy Caravan stage at Electric Picnic last year, having a sell-out show at Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he regularly performs and appearing on stage in Las Vegas alongside Preston Lacy from MTV's Jackass, Aidan is absolutely no closer to realising his dreams of one day appearing on Mrs Brown's Boys.
