DANNY O'BRIEN

Danny has been performing stand-up comedy for over eight years, headlining regularly at top comedy clubs and festivals to worldwide audiences. As the resident host and owner of The Comedy Crunch in Dublin one of Ireland’s most successful comedy clubs - his friendly, anecdotal style draws in an audience and brings on the big laughs with ease!
 
“O’ Brien took to the stage like a force of nature…one suspects it won’t be too much longer before stadiums come calling…” — The Examiner
 
Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain – Danny was handpicked this year to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show and has just returned from Australia touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Danny has just finished a full run with his fourth solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
 
“O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing…”
— The Sunday Independent
 
He performed his first solo show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival to rave reviews and scooped the title of “Dublin’s Funniest Comedian” at the prestigious Stand Up For FM104 that same year. In 2013 Danny took part in Irish TV show The RTE Comedy Awards and released his first comedy album on iTunes as part of the Irish Underground Comedy Show. He also beat sixteen of Ireland’s best up-and-coming acts to take the coveted Toilet Duck Award at Tedfest (the now-famous Father Ted celebration).
 
In 2014 Danny performed at the Edinburgh Fringe with his second solo show ‘Back To The Hills!’ and had a hugely successful sold-out run, returning in 2015 with ‘Ah Jaysus!’ and "Who breaks up with Stella?" in 2016 with triumphant runs to full houses followed by shows in Ireland, the UK and Europe and the US.
