Niamh Marron

Introduction

Multi award winning comedian Niamh Marron, has worked hard gigging all around Ireland, England and Scotland. She has supported PJ Gallagher, David Mc Savage, Al Porter, Foil, Arms & Hog and Gearoid Farrelly. She performed along side popular bands in the Vicar St venue for 'Dublin Does Comic Relief', and later again in the same venue along side comic legends Eddie Izzard, Tommy Tiernan and Dara O'Briain. 

In 2013 Niamh almost made it through to Britain's Got Talent Live semi-finals in London. She performed in front of 4,000 people in the SECC arena in Scotland and received 4 yes's from the judges.

Chosen by UK's top comic Jason Manford, she co hosted his very popular Absolute Radio show.

In 2014 Niamh went on tour around Ireland with her 1hour solo show 'Marronated'. In 2015 she took this show to The Edinburgh Fringe festival.  

In 2016 she appeared on the popular RTE series 'Bridget and Eamon' as a culchie model. She was also one of the most featured comedians on RTE's 'Doctor Pixies Sex Clinic' and created a memorable experience for the young boy in the front row, with her version of "The Whisk" position.   

She was part of the much anticipated TV3 documentary show 'The Stand Up's' which showed the journey of Irish comedians working the comedy circuit. Niamh appeared regularly on RTE's Republic of Telly sketches. The most loved sketch was from Foil, Arms & Hog with 'The Apartment Games'.

She has written for Channel 4 Comedy, BBC1 and BBC3. Also making it to the print world, Niamh had a popular monthly column in the Sligo Weekender. Now she is a contributor to Headstuff.org.

Niamh wrote her own play 'Living on the Edge' and performed it in The Samuel Beckett Theatre, Trinity, as part of the Cultural Comedy Buffet - Laughter in our Bones.

Niamh Marron is both ridiculous and inappropriate in equal measures...... but sure you'll have that!!
