For Gearóid Farrelly, comedy came as second nature.
His comedy career got off to a flying start in 2008, when in the space of a few short weeks he was a finalist in the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition at the Edinburgh Festival. A gleamingly polished live performer, he is a regular at Irish festivals including our own Kilkenny Cat Laughs, The Vodafone Comedy Festival and Electric Picnic, and is also a regular touring support to some of the comedy’s top names including the late Joan Rivers.
On television, Gearóid is probably best known for playing Pat the conjoined-twin of Gerry (PJ Gallagher) in ‘Meet Your Neighbours’ (RTE). He was also a regular on ‘The Panel’ and has also notched up appearances in ‘The Savage Eye’, ‘Maeve Higgins Fancy Vittles’, ‘The Lucy Kennedy Show’ and ‘The Blame Game’ on BBC1.
