TERRY ALDERTON (Live at The Apollo)

One of the most exciting comedians around, Terry regularly performs all over the globe, which has meant performing alongside some of comedy’s biggest stars. Michael McIntyre has found Terry as a source of inspiration. He has worked with Joan Rivers who became an instant fan and Eddie Izzard who proclaimed him to be a “very funny comic with a fantastic comedy mind, but someone who really ought to seek some sort of professional help”.

His accolades include winning The Malcolm Hardee Award for Comic Originality and a Perrier nomination for Best Show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival. He has performed stand up on many shows including Live at The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Road Show. Also an actor, Terry has starred in EastEnders (BBC1), London’s Burning (ITV1), The Bill (ITV1), Holby City (BBC1), and Waking the Dead (BBC1).

“He’s proved himself as a comedian of dizzying inventiveness” - The Times
“Alderton at his best is unstable and deliciously unexpected” - The Guardian

Peeking inside the technicolour mind of one of Britain’s finest comic talents and you will find him desperately battling with “The Voices”, two unpredictable and hilarious voices in Terry Alderton’s head. Though often a challenge to Terry these two different sides of his ego / conscience often lead him into unpredictable comedy routines.

IAN BURKE (Show Me The Funny 2022 winner)

Since bursting onto the comedy scene a little over a year and a pandemic ago, Ian Burke has quickly established himself as an act to watch by winning Show Me The Funny 2022 and Cork Comedian of the Year 2020 (and bringing the title home to his native Galway). Ian also reached the final of Dublin’s Next Top Comic, and Bray Comedy Festival’s Best New Act competition. Throughout 2022 Ian will be gracing the stages at All Together Now, Electric Picnic and Galway Comedy Festival.

ELINOR MURPHY (Best New Act 2022 winner Bray Comedy Festival)

A newcomer to the Irish comedy circuit, Elinor Murphy has quickly made waves, performing in many top clubs, winning the “Best New Act 2022” award, and billed by Bray Comedy Festival as a “rising star” and “absolutely one to watch”.

Your host KARL SPAIN

Karl has been in stand-up comedy for over twenty years. Last seen on telly hosting Laughter In The Eyre filmed at Galway Comedy Festival in 2019, Karl is probably best known in Ireland for losing a few ounces on Celebrity Operation Transformation, and his TV series Karl Spain Wants A Woman in which he not only got huge ratings but he also found himself a woman.

As well as being a regular at Róisín Dubh, Galway Comedy Festival, Vodafone Comedy Festival Dublin, Kilkenny Cat Laughs, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Montréal Just for Laughs, Karl was a resident writer for Republic of Telly and still is for countless other comedians.
