"A perfect mix of brains, banter and brilliance"- Great Scott ★★★★★

Award-winning Irish comedian Danny O' Brien went to prison. Three times to perform. Once again by accident. He's performed relentlessly worldwide and taken up a new religion through the medium of a hangry hangover. Danny was handpicked this year to perform as part of the iconic Best of the Edinburgh Fest show touring Australia, has featured on The Comedy Channel and is a regular on Irish TV and Radio. He recently opened for American comedian Bill Burr in front of over 7,000 people in Dublin. 'Lock-In' has already sold out at Galway International Arts Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and a 10 city European run of shows! All before his biggest tour to date this year across 12 International countries around the globe! Book your tickets now to avoid disappointment! 

“He opened for me at the 3Arena and f*cking murdered it!”- Bill Burr

★★★★★ ABOUT DANNY O´BRIEN ★★★★★

Danny O' Brien - Biography

Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain - Danny was hand picked this year to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show (which has run successfully for over 20 years) and has just returned from Australia touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Danny is currently preparing for his fourth solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Danny has been performing stand-up comedy for over seven years, playing regularly at top comedy clubs and festivals to worldwide audiences, as well as being the resident host and owner of The Comedy Crunch in Dublin, Ireland's most successful comedy club. With his friendly, anecdotal style, this Irish charmer draws in an audience and brings on the big laughs with ease. He performed his first solo show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival to rave reviews and scooped the title of "Dublin's Funniest Comedian" at the prestigious Stand Up For FM104 that same year. In 2013 Danny took part in Irish TV show The RTE Comedy Awards and released his first comedy album on iTunes as part of the Irish Underground Comedy Show. He also beat sixteen of Ireland's best up-and-coming acts and take the coveted Toilet Duck Award at Tedfest (the now-famous Father Ted celebration). In 2014 Danny performed at the Edinburgh Fringe with his second solo show 'Back To The Hills!' and had a hugely successful sold-out run, returning in 2015 with 'Ah Jaysus!', performing another triumphant run to full houses followed by shows in Ireland, the UK and Europe and appearances at The Forbidden Fruit Festival, Longitude Festival, and Vodafone Comedy Festivals. 

"O' Brien took to the stage like a force of nature...one suspects it wont be too much longer before stadiums come calling” The Examiner **** 

" a perfect mix of brains, banter and brilliance!" Great Scott ****

"Instantly amiable, his easy Irish charm and repartee quickly won over the audience... it’s all done with affection and no little style. What Danny also has going for him is he's young, got a good look and he can tell a story better than most." Giggle Beats UK

★★★★★ ABOUT GER STAUNTON ★★★★★

Ger Staunton - Biography

Hailing from the west of Ireland, deadpan comic Ger Staunton has been performing regularly at top comedy clubs throughout Ireland, Europe and the UK.

In the last 3 years he has been invited to perform as part of the iconic Electric Picnic music and Arts festival, the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival, The Vodafone Comedy Festival and this year will mark his debut show in what will be his third Edinburgh Fringe festival.

"RaconTour" Live at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival

After a year of blood, seat and gears working on my brand new solo show I'll (hopefully) be heading over the water on my battered old motorbike to debut  at The worlds biggest art's festival! I'm lucky enough to be performing in one of the best venues in Edinburgh, The Underbelly Cowgate. Some more info on my show below and you can book tickets to come see it right here! 

“O'Brien took to the stage like a force of nature... one suspects it won’t be too much longer before stadiums come calling.” Irish Examiner ★★★★★

“O'Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing... He looks set to be one of the breakout comedy stars of 2017.” Irish Independent

Award-winning Irish comedian Danny O'Brien returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his most adventurous and unique solo show to date.

After inheriting a broken-down, unreliable, older-than-he-is motorcycle, Danny decided to take to the road, touring Ireland before heading over to the Fringe. But before he set off,
Danny randomly found a picture of his father at 17 years old, on an almost identical bike. This small coincidence becomes far more poignant when we discover that Danny’s father has been missing for 20 years - the same amount of time that the motorbike he's travelling on had remained untouched.

From the frustration of trying to contact a family that have all but disappeared to
the awkward discovery of a long lost sister, via Danny’s hilarious and energetic tales of the road, this is a touching and highly personal story. Prepare yourself for an honest and funny look at trying to literally climb holy mountains (and barely surviving) and build family bridges on both sides of the water- and how things don’t always turn out as planned.

Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain - Danny was handpicked this year to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show and has just returned from Australia touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

In addition to his fifth solo show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Danny has also performed as part of "AAA Stand-Up" (total sell-out from 2005-2015) at The Pleasance Courtyard, as well as The Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, Latitude Comedy Festival (UK), BugJam Festival (UK), The Vodafone Comedy Festival, Ravlóid (Irish speaking) Festival, Electric Picnic and The Vodafone Comedy Carnival, as well as a host of International shows in Berlin, Barcelona, Brussels, Malmö, Amsterdam, Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm and LA.

Danny has also featured in The Comedy Channel’s Brexit at Tiffany’s and RTE’s Cutting Edge which both aired this month. He is currently providing tour support to Dermot & Dave’s sell-out “AH sure look it” tour all across Ireland.
