Sean Gorman
Sean Gorman is a musically comedian from Ballina Co.Mayo but he is original from the kingdom of Gormania which has been lost to time do to the new world order and the illuminati but that is a long story. His comedy career all started in 2010 when he moved to Dublin to start a thrash metal band but somehow got roped into comedy. Now seven years he is living in Galway and playing comedy clubs around Ireland and open mics where sometime he has been taken off stage by dry lads. He has supported many big comedy names such as that funny guy every town has and the king of Saudi Arabia from well…Saudi Arabia . When he is not on stage he does a spot of busking to support his many addiction problems.
John O’Hare
John O’Hare has performed at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival, Edinburgh Fringe and Cork Comedy Festival. He has supported the likes of Phil Jupitus, Terry Alderton, Dave McSavage, Tom Rhodes and Tom Stade.   He has toured with Al Lubel and has performed throughout Europe with the Good The Bad The Irish Tour. He won Comedian of the Galway Fringe in 2016. Semi Finalist Irish Comedian of the Year 2017 and Show Me The Funny Finalist 2017. Despite being completely and utterly class John remains a humble performer

 

Ross McCarthy

Ross first took up the mic in 2015 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. A regular on the Galway Comedy Scene, Ross has shared the stage with Joe Rooney, Dave McSavage, Pat McDonnell, John Colleary, & Katherine Lynch. Ross has also performed in many prestigious comedy events including Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Galway Fringe Festival, and the finals of both Show Me the Funny, and Forbidden Fruit Comedy Talent Search in 2017.
