Karl Spain was born and still lives Limerick, but he has to perform his comedy all over the world. He’s probably best known in Ireland for his TV series ‘Karl Spain Wants A Woman’. Which was a huge success in that he not only got huge ratings but he also found himself a woman.
Karl could be seen hosting the RTE TV series ‘Karl Spain Wants To Rock’, a new series capturing the events of ‘Scrap Metal: The Tour’. Offering a revealing, humorous and inspirational account of Ireland’s best monster of rock tribute bands on tour together, it captured the journey, the drama and the chaos as the bands compete to be crowned the ‘Scrap Metal’ champions.
As well as his own series he has also performed stand up on television all over the world. The U.S, the Middle East, Australia and even as far away as England.
Hot Press said "the future of Irish comedy is in safe hands"
The Sunday Times said "achingly funny"
Metro said "the audience were in the palm of his hand"
