Danny O’ Brien Bio

Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain – Danny O’ Brien, was handpicked in 2016 to perform as part of the iconic ‘Best of The Edinburgh Fest’ Show across Australia touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

“O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing

— The Sunday Independent ★★★★★During the pandemic of 2020, Danny O’ Brien launched a hugely successful event company ‘Garden Gigs Ireland’ which saw him perform outdoor socially distanced shows along with Australian comedian Damian Clark to local Dublin communities and frontline workers which featured on every major Irish and UK news and media outlet. During the lockdown, he helped to raise over €100,000 through online shows and fundraisers for The Irish Cancer Society, Pieta House, and Wexford Women’s Refuge to name but a few. Danny also filmed and produced a live “Lockdown Comedy Special” which received huge viewing figures from its Saturday night TV airing, as well as tens of thousands of views online-it, was the first of its kind on Irish television and was praised for its innovation during the lockdown! Garden Gigs Ireland has continually adapted to the pandemic performing well over 100+ online shows and virtual events with its own developed format for companies and organizations all over the globe. Garden Gigs Ireland has also facilitated ‘Comedy & Confidence Building’ workshops for secondary schools all over Ireland since last spring and will launch several of their own festivals all over Ireland and the UK this summer.
