A critically acclaimed comedian, an award winning radio broadcaster and best-selling author, Colm O’Regan is one of Ireland’s most in-demand after-dinner comedians. He also MCs awards ceremonies, corporate communications days and has acted as a panel moderator, bringing an entertaining touch to economics in Ireland, Europe and the USA.

He can adjust tone and content depending on the audience but still keep it sharp.
