Eric Lalor’s first foray into comedy was a bit unusual. In 2006, as one of the participants of RTE Two’s Des Bishop’s Joy In The Hood, his first ever gig was filmed on his home turf of Ballymun in Dublin and broadcast to the entire nation. Des was so impressed with what he saw that he brought Eric on his record-breaking, nationwide ‘Fitting In’ tour. Opening the show at ‘Live at the Marquee’ in Cork, Eric performed to 5,000 people.
Eric is now a regular act at the prestigious Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival, as well as playing the Electric Picnic, Galway Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, Portlaoise Halloween Howls and Iveagh Gardens Festivals.
Kilkenny People said "Excellent, bellyachingingly funny, fast moving"
Evening Herald said "Inimitable and hilariously funny"
