Comedians : Dara O Briain

Dara O Briain

Dara O Briain is the biggest Irish stand up comedian to have hit the UK in recent years.

Already a huge star in Ireland where he produces and presents the hit TV live comedy review show The Panel, Dara has now moved from being a sold-out festival favourite in Edinburgh to mainstream television success.

At the start of 2003 Dara was chosen by the BBC to front their Saturday night comedy showcase, The Live Floor Show, which directly led to an invite to guest-host the legendary Have I Got News for You, an appearance described by The Sun as "the best guest host yet".

The basis for this success is Dara's place at the very top of the stand-up circuit. Winner of the Chortle award in 2003 for 'Best Headline Act', Dara has performed all over the UK and virtually all over the world, from Dubai to Shanghai, and at all the major festivals from Melbourne to Montreal.

In 2001 at the world famous Just for Laughs Festival he made such an impact that space was specially made for him in the prestigious gala hosted by Joan Rivers.

Dara has also developed an enormous reputation as host to award ceremonies and corporate events, for evenings as diverse as the European Advertising Awards in the Grosvenor's Great room, to the Irish Rock and Pop Awards, held in the Point Depot in Dublin, in front of 5,000 people.
