NEIL DELAMERE & CHRIS KENT
Ireland has a rich and impressive comedy heritage, which can be proven by reeling off just some of the Irish talent that has emerged over the years – Dave Allen, Father Ted creators Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews, Aisling Bea, The Rubber Bandits, Sharon Horgan, Tommy Tiernan, David O’ Doherty, Alison Spittle, Ed Byrne, Jason Byrne, Dara O’ Briain, Dylan Moran, Jarlath Regan, Catherine Bohart, Andrew Maxwell and Eleanor Tiernan (to name a few, but there are countless more.)
Neil Delamere is a regular on TV and radio in the UK and Ireland, having appeared on shows such as The Blame Game, One Night Stand and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. He’s a superb comic storyteller with an eye for absurd details and a disarming combination of charm and high energy, and has deservedly gained a reputation for being a superb live performer. See him in action HERE
Supporting Neil is Chris Kent – a comedian I’ve worked with a lot over the years – he is a regular at the comedy night I founded in London 9 years ago (coincidentally, Neil also plays my London club next month before heading over to Amsterdam – that’s the end of my plug!). The reason he’s a regular is that he’s, well, basically, excellent. He’s got a dry, laid back, at times almost dead-pan demeanour and beautifully written gags and observations that I’ve never seen fail to have an audience in the palm of his hands. Watch him HERE
