Keith Farnan

“Brilliant, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny” – TIME OUT

“Artful, satirical…with a lightness of touch and a hefty helping of roguish Celtic charm” – THE SUNDAY TIMES

Having appeared on BBC’s Michael Mcintyre Comedy Roadshow as well as adapting his own comedy documentary for RTE, Money, Money, Money: Keith Farnan versus the Economy, Keith has just topped an outstanding eighteen months by appearing at the Montreal Just For Laughs All Access show for the Canadian Comedy Network and Hollands highest rating comedy show, The Comedy Factory. In America, Showtime have Keith has appeared on their new standup show, Live From Amsterdam, which brings together the best American and European comedians working today.

He has performed as a stand-up all over the world, from Montreal to Amsterdam to Hong Kong. His four Edinburgh Festival shows have proved a powerful mix of the personal and the political and have sold out their runs at the major comedy festivals in the UK as well as the Soho Theatre and Royal Festival Hall in London.

“Farnan will make you think hard and laugh even harder” – THE LIST

“If Eddie Izzard had been Irish, he’d surely have turned out a lot like Keith Farnan” – THE SCOTSMAN

Time Out Critics Choice – London, New York, Hong Kong and Dubai!

“This is political comedy at its best, perfectly balanced, deadly serious and very funny” – THE SKINNY

With host Burt Williamson (MC)

He’s had two critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe while also having self produced his debut comedy hour 200 IQ Audience Only (13.50Munters) which is available on YouTube.
