Andrew Stanley, Markus Birdman, and host Katie Mulgrew
Having performed worldwide at the Montreal, Australian and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals and becoming a regular fixture on the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Calendar, Andrew Stanley is one of the top comics working the worldwide comedy circuit today. Whether it's performing as resident MC in numerous clubs around Ireland, one of which is the legendary Comedy Cellar in Dublin, or as a quality act in his own right Andrew is always high energy and quick witted enough to keep audiences thoroughly entertained.
Andrew has travelled to the Adelaide Fringe Festival twice, performed at the Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand Comedy Festivals and has been invited to the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. He also travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2006 where he teamed up with Australian comic Damian Clark in a show entitled 'I Dare Ya' (Great late night fun - Independent On Sunday) which was then turned into a highly successful TV show on RTE2 in 2007, still the highest rated debut comedy show on Irish TV.
He returned to Edinburgh in 2008 armed with 2 shows – His first debut solo show and his own brand of late night entertainment, Andrew Stanley’s Comedy Mish Mash, which returned the following year after receiving rave reviews.
“Natural and genuinely funny” - Galway Independent
“Hugely entertaining” - Kilkenny People
“Likeable, laid back comic” - Limerick Leader
Markus Birdman is one of British comedy's most experienced and well-travelled performers. In demand all over the UK and abroad, Markus is a veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe with many solo shows to his credit and headliner status at all the top clubs.
He's performed at the Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth Comedy Festivals and was nominated by the New Zealand Comedy Guild for Best International Guest.
His international gig list would give Michael Palin a run for his money, with shows in Singapore, The Netherlands, Qatar, Bahrain, Austria, Spain, France, Norway, Sweden, Singapore, Switzerland, Finland, Cyprus and India to name a few.
Not to be missed, catch him in the UK before he jets off again.
“Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy” - The List
“A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny” - The Stage
“Engagingly mixes the silly and the downright wrong” - Chortle
Lancashire comedian, Katie Mulgrew really likes making people laugh. It’s kinda her thing. She gigs all over the country in comedy clubs doing just that, to mostly success. She also makes her Mum laugh loads.
She’s done lots of lovely things whilst being a comedian like being tour support for The Boy With Tape On His Face and Vikki Stone. She has written for The News Quiz and you can hear her dulcet Northern tones featured on the BBC Radio 2 documentary series, The History of British Comedy. She got to be very silly indeed on a couple of episodes of the CBBC show, The Dog Ate My Homework. She recently co-hosted a Tv pilot on ITV2 called Lovefix.
Katie has performed three solo stand up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is currently working on her fourth show when she’s not consumed with trying to keep the human she has made alive.
“Mulgrew is an engaging, likeable presence who doesn’t struggle to hold the audience’s attention. This is a well-structured thoughtful show.. radiating warmth” - Chortle
“charmingly honest... delightfully tender and thoroughly entertaining” - The Skinny
“...honest, un-cynical comedy that’s rough around the ages but tremendously warm” - Three Weeks
This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.
