Tom O’Mahony (@TOM_OMAHONY):

Tom starred alongside the legendary and late, great Rik Mayall in Irish TV’s record-breaking hit comedy Damo & Ivor in 2013 – returning in 2014 (alongside Snatch’s Alan Ford), reprising his role as the intolerable toff, Tarquin.

He has since been a regular on Irish TV shows from Republic of Telly and Irish Pictorial Weekly. He’s set to star in a new ghost hunting show for TV3, which is set to air Halloween ’16 and also in RTE TV’s latest hit series Bridget & Eamon which will air in early ’17. He’s also a regular on national radio, 2FM’s Breakfast Republic and Spin 1038.

An ex-MMA fighter turned comedian, Tom O’Mahony’s first show at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2012 ‘Endangered Species’ was a sell-out. He went on to continue his rise to the top as one of RTE TV’s National New Comedian of The Year Finalists in 2013 and followed on with a sell-out show at the International Comedy Club for the 10 Days In Dublin Fest. His 2014 show ‘Bring On The Apocalypse’ sold out all its Irish dates and saw him sell out yet another Edinburgh Fringe. His 2015 show “Got Ammo” was another sell-out success in Irish theatres.

Tom is a headline act in many major Irish and European comedy clubs. He has gone on to support the likes of Nina Conti (Cork Opera House) and Michael Winslow (of Police Academy fame) Abandonman, Neil Delamare and Tommy Tiernan as part of their nationwide tours. He plays some of the country’s biggest festivals, Vodafone Comedy Festival, Forbidden Fruit and this year was part of the Best of Irish show at the 2016 Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival.

“A rough-neck and unapologetically funny, Tom has a penchant for kicking the proverbial doors off when hits the stage. Fiercely likable and refreshingly original” – The Evening Echo

“O’Mahony, brilliantly bad ass..” –

“Psychotically funny B**tard” – Rik Mayall

“Tom O’Mahony was hilarious” – BroadwayBaby

“Tom was fantastic” – Nina Conti



– Connor McDonough-Flynn (@ConMcFlynn)

Connor McDonough-Flynn’s been a comedian for 5+ years. Hes gigged all around Ireland and Internationally.

His comedy is bizarre, bold and (un)balanced – he’s an arguably debatable spectator tempter. Connor will have you laughing away as he deals with the debaucherous topics that present themselves daily. The stimulating humdrum thoughts that arouse bemusement. And the oddball anecdotes that evoke howls, from the mouths, on your face. There’s a means to his madcap manoeuvres.

He put on his first solo show (hour special): “I’m Not Special” at The Workman’s Club in Dublin on the 13th of March, 2015.

He’s since began touring:  “I’m Not Special” bringing 5-shows to the Galway Fringe Festival in July 2015.

Finalist in the – Finalist in the Forbidden Fruit Comedy Talent Search.
