"Genuinely imaginative and ridiculously funny" The IndependentAdd to my shortlist
At the start of 2003 Dara was chosen by the BBC to front their Saturday night comedy showcase, The Live Floor Show, which directly led to an invite to guest-host the legendary Have I Got News for You, an appearance described by The Sun as "the best guest host yet". The basis for this success is Dara's place at the very top of the stand-up circuit. Winner of the Chortle award in 2003 for 'Best Headline Act', Dara has performed all over the UK and virtually all over the world. In 2001 at the world famous Just for Laughs Festival he made such an impact that space was specially made for him in the prestigious gala hosted by Joan Rivers.
WHAT he OFFERS YOU
Dara is one of those stand-ups who just seem to have been hit by the funny stick. The delivery is relentless and the material frequently topical, fresh from the day's headlines, but he can also delve into bigger issues. He exudes warmth and spontaneous good humour, and it's always a delight to be entertained by him. A graduate of Mathematical Physics from University College Dublin, Dara has a deep understanding of scientific data and the use of analytics which has parallels in today's marketing world. His numerical expertise, quick wit and Irish charm make him a very credible celebrity speaker.
