Jarlath Regan is one of the fastest rising stars of Irish comedy. Within two years of quitting his day job Regan’s original brand of observational humour and twisted greeting cards have made him a firm favourite among comedy anoraks. The wave of support for his new age comedy has been growing in momentum for some time. Hot Press calls him “Brilliant. The best young talent in Dublin”, The Metro describes his performance as “side-splitting stuff causing near hysteria in the room” and The Irish Times refers to him as “comic genius”. If you have not had the chance to see him yet, now is the time.
In 2006 / 2007 he supported Ardal O’Hanlon, Jason Byrne and David O’Doherty their tours of Ireland. Jarlath wowed the expectant crowds and earned him an invitation to take part in the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival and the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal where he appeared alongside Tommy Tiernan in the first ever “Best of Irish” televised gala.
