Dara O’ Briain is the biggest Irish comic to have emerged in recent years and he will take to the stage at The Royal Theatre Castlebar on Friday September 21. Already a huge star in Ireland where he produces and presents the hit TV comedy review show The Panel, Dara has now moved from being a sold-out festival favourite in Edinburgh to selling out theatres across the UK and mainstream television success including hosting popular TV shows such as Mock the Week.
He has also been hosting The Apprentice: You're Fired! on BBC 2 and has filmed Three Men go to Venice with Griff Rhys Jones and Rory Mc Grath which went out on BBC recently. Dara also presented Have I Got News for You, QI, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Live at the Apollo.
The basis for his success is Dara’s premier place at top of the stand-up circuit. Winner of the Chortle award for Best Headline Act in both 2003 and 2004, Dara has performed virtually all over the world, from Dublin to Shanghai, and at all the major festivals from Melbourne to Montreal. He has performed at the world famous Just for Laughs Festival Gala, and has appeared in the UK’s ultimate showcase for entertainers, The Royal Variety Performance.
