"Unique star quality." – The Guardian
The last few years have been something of a whirlwind for Deirdre O’Kane. A co-founder of Comic Relief in Ireland, she fronted the critically and audience acclaimed RTÉ Does Comic Relief. She recently fronted her own talk show — Deirdre O’Kane Talks Funny — in the primetime Saturday night slot on RTÉ One and debuted a brand new standup comedy series, The Deirdre O’Kane Show, with Sky Comedy.
Deirdre also appeared as a judge alongside Boy George, Aston Merrygold and Vogue Williams on the new Fox-developed talent show, The Big Deal, for Virgin Media Television. She is also known as the voice of smash-hit Gogglebox (Virgin Media) which returned for a seventh season in late 2021. In recent years she has hosted the revamped IFTA Film & Drama Awards (for RTÉ and Virgin Media), and reached the finals of the national broadcaster’s fan-favourite Dancing with the Stars.
One of Ireland’s favourite comedians, Deirdre never strays too far from her live stand-up roots; the new show, Demented, a box-fresh hour of side splitting laughs, is touring Ireland and the UK throughout 2022 and will come to Nerve Centre on 11 June.
