COMEDIANS

MICHAEL PORTER
Michael first took to the stage at a local open mic in Derry / LondonDerry in 2009. Fueled with nerves, excitement & no clue how to perform he proceeded to " die on his arse !".. However armed with the stupidity & ambition to be a comedian, Michael has come a long way since that painful winters night! A finalist in "Show Me The Funny" 2012 (Galway) his journey into the unknown has seen him perform all over the UK, Ireland & Europe.

After a very successful run at last years Edinburgh fringe Michael performed two shows everyday 'The Good, The Bad & The Irish' & his solo 'Love & Brain Damage'. Both shows got **** star reviews from 3 Weeks & Broadway Baby.

"You can't help but admire his energy"
- Derry Journal
"Understands comedy & connects with his audience, hilarious!"
- Vivid Promotions
"Very sharp, I laughed"
- Daniel Kitson
"Energetic & Confident"
- The Stand

DAVID DOHERTY - JEBB
"David Doherty-Jebb is a Northern Irish comedian & his accent won't let him forget it! David's been performing the Belfast comedy scene since 2015. Last year he was part of the team that wrote and performed the satire show Not The Norn Irish News at the MAC, and has appeared on BBC Radio Ulster's Live At The Sunflower. All jokes about his hometown Lurgan will be appreciated and most likely stolen"



JOE ROONEY
Joe Rooney was voted Best Comedian 2017 at the recent Pure M Awards. He has been a headline act in venues all over Britain and Ireland for many years including The Stand ( Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle), The Empire (Belfast) and Laughter Lounge (Dublin) and has headlined clubs in China, Kansas City, Dubai, Moscow and Bahrain. In the last year he has performed his show in Chicago, Dubai, Kansas City, Glastonbury Festival and Bangkok. His energetic mixture of stand up and musical comedy and ability to engage with the audience has proved a hit with all ages and nationalities.
Joe is also a successful actor and writer having acted as Father Damo in Father Ted and Timmy in the long running RTE sitcom Killinaskully as well as a host of short and feature films. He starred in the CBBC series Roy, was winner of Ireland's Celebrity Come Dine With Me, got a five star review in the theatre version of The Shawshank Redemption along with Omid Djalili, recorded a single “The Rockier Road To Poland” with Shane MacGowan and performed a five week run in the Gaiety in John B Keane’s The Chastitute.

"Rooney's pastiches of The Dubliners songbook reveal a mischievous insight beyond the rebel-without-a-brain-cell of his on-screen counterpart. He is an engaging host and maintains the love-in mood of the show"
- Chortle

"I'm still laughing at the thought of Fr. Damien (Damo) Lennon, the gurrier curate who lead Fr. Dougal astray
He was an inspired invention and was brilliantly played by Joe"
- John Boland Sunday Independent

"occasionally laconic, at times infectiously manic, and always rivetting – coupled with his years of experience have made him one of Ireland’s “10 Most Wanted”, when promoters nationwide pick up their phones"
- The Hot Press

*Pint of Tennents, Caladonia Best or Guiness. Soft drink substitution allowed.
