Cavan man, Kevin McGahern began performing stand up in 2009 and since then has become a well-known face of Irish television and comedy. He can currently be seen hosting the panel show Clear History.
Kevin was the host of RTÉ’s celebrated show, Republic of Telly for 10 seasons and went on to present documentaries such as Kevin McGahern’s Fast & Furious and Kevin McGahern’s America for the broadcaster. He played the character of Sim Card in the popular RTÉ 2 television series, The Hardy Bucks which is now available on Netflix. Other television work includes, Alison Spittle’s Nowhere Fast, Finding Joy and Bridget and Eamon. Kevin appeared in the film Redemption of a Rogue which won multiple awards at the Galway Film Fleadh 2020. In 2017 Kevin starred in the film No Party for Billy Burns. In 2014, Kevin co-wrote the play The Devil’s Céilíwith Philip Doherty, which won Best Play at the All Ireland Drama Festival.
Kevin is a regular in top Irish comedy clubs, in particular the International Bar in Dublin. He regularly performs at a number of festivals including, Kilkenny Cat Laughs, Vodafone Comedy Festival, Forbidden Fruit and Electric Picnic. In 2019 he brought his show Taking Off to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and subsequently performed as part of the Pick of the Fringe programme in London club 2Northdown.
After working in retail for 10 years Shane Clifford decided, on a whim, to upload some silly videos to the internet. The videos dealt with issues such as mental health and masculinity through an original, absurd and most of all funny lens and after accidentally attracting a small, but devoted, following he decided to give stand up a go.
In the 3 years since he nervously stepped on stage in a tiny room in Killarney and told jokes to 4 American tourists, he has risen quickly performing all over Ireland and appearing at major Irish comedy festivals including Castlepalooza, Cork Comedy Festival and the Vodafone Comedy Festival. In 2018 Shane was a finalist at the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? final at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and in October he performed his first solo hour, “Shane’s Brilliant Stand Up Show”, to a sold out audience in Whelans, Dublin.
Having achieved so much in such a short period it is clear that Shane has become one of the most original and exciting new acts in Irish comedy.
