Aussie Damian Clark burst into the Irish & UK comedy circuit in 2005 and within weeks was hailed ‘The Number 1 event to see' and 'Cream of the crop’ (InDublin Magazine). After several acclaimed TV performances in Australia plus two prestigious comedy awards under his belt, Damo moved to Ireland where teaming up with fellow comic Andrew Stanley, wrote and co-starred in RTE TV’s I Dare Ya (‘Critics’ Choice’ - The Irish Times, ‘A smash hit’ - The Sunday Mirror) which was the highest rating debut of an Irish TV comedy show to date. Since then, Clark has written and performed for such shows as The Republic of Telly, IFTA Nominated Best Entertainment Program - The Savage Eye, The Apprentice: You're Fired! semi final and his appearance on Katherine Lynch’s Wonder Women was voted on TV3 as ‘one of the funniest moments on Irish TV in the past 50 years’. Now Damo headlines clubs all over Ireland, the UK, Europe and is the founder & regular host of The Comedy Shed, north side Dublin's leading alternative comedy club since it started in 2008.

In support we have the ridiculously awesome, and TEDFEST Award Winning Mr. Edwin Sammon.
Edwin, a native of Offally (we all have a cross to bear) is probably one of the most unique thinking but incredibly funny comedian you will see this year. Making a quick dash from the Indie-pendence Music/comedy fest that evening , you will not be sorry you got to see this guy.
Your host for the evening is Tom "the Bear" O' Mahony, a Cork based comedian, with his sniper-style observational-accuracy and tales from his insane lifestyle with hilarious consequences takes the audience on a unique comedic journey that truly brings the house down every time her performs. Playing alongside acts like, Jo Caulfield, PJ Gallagher, Patrick McDonnell.
Based in Cork, Tom is steamrolling the Southern Irish scene as one of the most sought after headline acts.
