A double helping of comedy genius arrives in Castlebar and Christmas Craic ! is a show not to be missed. Neil Delamere is one of the top headline acts working in the Irish comedy scene today and is one of the biggest factors in the huge success of RTE television’s hit show The Panel. Having performed on five continents, he staged his debut solo show in the Edinburgh festival in 2004. His live stand-up set was then recorded for the BBC comedy series One Night Stand. Hailed by the Irish Independent for his countless MC skills, Neil is the regular compere at several gigs round Dublin. He has performed all over Ireland as well as at the prestigious Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival, the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and the Adelaide Fringe Festival. He featured in both series of the TV stand-up show Liffey Laughs.

Apart from being one of the stars of The Panel, alongside Andrew Maxwell and Colin Murphy, Neil is also a regular on The Blame Game, a topical TV show for the BBC. “No TV camera could accurately measure the lightning speed of Delamere’s wit” – The Irish Times.
