Tommy Nicholson aka ‘The Navan man’

Tommy Nicholson aka ‘The Navan man’ has been a fixture in Irish comedy for over 30 years. Tommy has supported comedic giants such as Des Bishop, Jason Byrne and Joanne McNally and graced some of the biggest venues across Ireland, such as The Olympia, The Gaiety and Cork Opera House. 

And in between all that, he has continued to be one of the busiest comedians on the Irish Comedy circuit, playing on every stage and headlining every club on the Island.  His mix of old school gags and storytelling is always a hit with audiences. Des Bishop once described him as “The King of underground comedy in Ireland”.

Cheeky Dubliner Joe Dowlin burst onto the Irish comedy scene 7 years ago. His madcap, high energy style mixed with a unique skill for storytelling made him popular in all the comedy clubs at home and abroad. Joe has been a finalist in numerous competitions, including Ireland’s Got Comedy Talent at The Laughter Lounge where he is now a regular performer. He has also graced the stages of Electric Picnic, Galway Comedy Festival, Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, All Together Now and more festivals alongside the likes of Tommy Tiernan, PJ Gallagher, Phill Jupitus and Des Bishop.

Co.Down born Richie has quickly become a staple of the Irish comedy scene as the resident host of Cherry Comedy at Dublin’s iconic Whelan’s venue.

He went to Edinburgh for the semi-final of the UK’s biggest and best comedy newcomer competition ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ and won the first ever ‘Ireland’s got Comedy Talent’ competition in Ireland’s premier comedy venue the Laughter Lounge. He has supported Ardal O’Hanlon (Father Ted), Milton Jones (Live @ The Apollo) and Ari Shaffir (Netflix/Comedy Central)
