Carl Donnelly

Chortle’s 2009 Breakthrough Act and the 2013 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee “mixes up the banal and the bizarre” (The Guardian) in his new show.

Carl Donnelly (as seen on Mock The Week, Russell Howard’s Good News, Dave’s One Night Stand) brings his critically acclaimed complete sell-out Edinburgh show to venues nationwide. The show is brimming with hilarious anecdotes and observations on the state of the world and his plans on how we should be dealing with it. No gimmicks, just “Gripping, unmissable stand-up” (The Guardian) from “A master storyteller” (Time Out).

A ludicrously funny hour… It’s effortless and utterly captivating
The Skinny

He’s a remarkable talent – a relaxed, easygoing anecdotalist with an eye for funny details. An hour in his company is a true delight.
