A breath of fresh air to the Irish comedy scene.



Kevin Larney



“Kevin Larney is a Dundalk comic trapped in a Dublin man’s body. With a gig count in triple digits and an audience fatality record in low single figures he’s doing alright. Kevin was in the final of the Bray Comedy Festival competition earlier this year and hasn’t shut up about it since”




Joe Dowlin

Aidan Shields


Irreverant host and promoter. Apart from appearing at major festivals across Ireland & the U.K, Aidan’s special brand of humour has won him accolades in Russia, Vietnam and Las Vegas. Cheeky. Outspoken. A loveable rogue of sorts from Dundalk. Aidan has been telling jokes for over 5 years now. Sometimes for money. Sometimes for cans of Harp Lager.

Seeing is believing.
Bring Harp.



Sunday 2nd June      6 – 8pm

Danny Ryan


Very funny guy.

Show Me the Funny comedy competition winner. Has performed at Electric Picnic, Longitude, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and heaps more deadly places.






Tomie James


Tomie was born in the same hospital as Pierce Brosnan, Steve Staunton and DJ Kormac; although they all left Drogheda before they could walk and talk, Tomie decided to stay on and learn “the Drog”… an ancient tongue spoken by some and understood by few.  Tomie has performed his comedy at all the major clubs in Ireland, and recently supported Tom Stade on his UK tour. He is a regular in the Laughter
Lounge and The International Comedy Club. Tomie is also a former winner of the Galway Comedy Festival Smackdown competition.



Andrew Gilmore


Andrew is Dublin based comedy. He is no stranger to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he has performed for the last 7 years. He has toured Australia, Asia and Europe for the last two years and is here to tell you stories of his travels.




Siobhan Brosnan


Hailing from Healy-Rae country, Brossie performs under an alias to protect her identity from her students. A regular at Roisin Dubh Comedy Club and venues up and down the country,  Siobhan is definitely one to watch.






Terry Norman


Terry Norman (née Kennedy) is a stand-up comedian from Kildare Town with complexes both Messianic and Napoleonic. He has gigged all over the world, including Manhattan’s iconic Comic Strip Live, and comes to Vantastival fresh off a string of sold-out performances of his own solo show.



Jack Hourigan


Jack is a call centre worker from Co.Waterford that earns at least double his true worth, known to the public as ‘minimum wage’. A martyr, Jack understands that this will lead to the inevitable downfall of the entire industry, which will inspire him to seek Jobseekers Allowance.





Kevin O’Sullivan



Resident MC at The international Comedy Club in Dublin and no stranger to the bigger festivals including the Vodafone Comedy Festival. Kevin is a self-confessed stoner whose only other motive is to perform stand-up. Something he does ridiculously well.
