  • Alison Spittle
    Alison Spittle

    Alison has appeared on television a few times, enough times for her mam to tell strangers that she works for RTE (she doesn’t), not enough times for her to get a free drink. She has appeared on Republic of Telly and RTE’s New Comedy Awards.

    She was a team captain on a panel show for RTE 2 called Choose or Lose. A TV presenter for RTE’s coverage of Electric Picnic in 2015. A talking head on the year that’s in it. She has a new chat show called the Alison Spittle show with guests such as Tara Flynn, Aidan Power and Kevin McGahern.
    She performed at the Vodafone Comedy Festival in the Iveagh Gardens and performed her show Alison Spittle Needs an Agent to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Dublin Fringe.

    Her new show Alison Spittle discovers Hawaii had a full sell out run at First Fortnight and was nominated for two awards, Little gem award for best show under an hour and the first fortnight award for destigmatizing mental health.

    She’s a regular columnist for headstuff.org and UCD university observer. Her article caused a kerfuffle, so much so she trended on Twitter in Ireland and appeared on Joe Duffy’s Liveline, guess which one impressed her mum?

    Since starting the Comedy Cellar in 1988 Barry has performed in New York, San Francisco, Kansas, Shanghai, Prague, Berlin, Stuttgart, The Edinburgh festival and all over the UK. A regular at the Galway, Dublin and Cork comedy festivals – He is the only comedian to have performed at every Kilkenny Cat Laughs festival since 1995

    Barry has been hosting corporate events as MC or After Dinner speaker for the last 20 years. He is one of the few Irish comedians who writes routines specific to the conference/event theme. Barry provides an alternative and comical slant on conference presentations. He buries himself in the company and re-emerges as a visiting consultant who incorporates slides of sales figures/targets, advertising campaigns, company outings etc in his presentation. His approach ensures that delegates embrace the ideas outlined in the conference and enjoy an extremely humorous and uplifting presentation.
