Twice as Nice Comedy 30 March @ Grove Hammersmith: Jarleth Regan & Steve Hall Previews


Jarlath Regan is a 31 year old Irish comedian. After winning a place in the final of the BBC and Channel 4 new comedy awards he began gigging around Ireland in small bars, pubs, community halls and hay barns. After a while he was asked to support people like Ardal O’Hanlon and David O’Doherty. Not emotionally but by doing a short set before they went on stage. In the past few years he has appeared on Ireland’s version of Mock The Week – The Panel. He recently completed his second illustrated book of his twisted greeting card collection which was published by Transworld Ireland for Random House in April 2011. The first book, “How To Break Bad News” became an instand best-seller and something of a cult classic. In January 2009 he made a little bit of history by becoming the first comedian to record a live album in Dublin’s Comedy Cellar – the venue that gave birth to Dara O’Brian, Tommy Tiernan and Dylan Moran. “The man radiates warmth while projecting deliciously dark greeting cards which are thoroughly recommended for Christmas or hostage situations” The Scotsman “Side-splitting stuff…causes near hysteria in the room” Metro ****

Steve Hall has provided the support for Russell Howard on his sell-out national tours Adventures, Dingledodies and the 2009 arena tour Big Rooms And Belly Laughs. Steve’s recent work has included writing on Russell Howard’s Good News series 6, 7 and 8 as well as a second series of writing for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show. A finalist in the BBC New Comedy Award and Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award. Steve Hall also makes up one third of if.comedy Award nominated and BBC Three sketch show We Are Klang. The group has appeared on the Paramount Comedy Channel’s Edinburgh & Beyond two years running and was nominated in 2006 for the Chortle Best Sketch Show, which they then won in 2007. “This is stand-up as it should be: snappy and smart, occasionally nasty, and always funny” The List
