Neil Dougan is one of the strongest established acts on the Irish comedy circuit today. Bitten by the bug following his first ever visit to a comedy club, Neil walked onto the same stage with his own routine two weeks later. Within a matter of weeks he had made it to the final of Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny at The Edinburgh Festival.
Neil is now a familiar face in comedy clubs throughout the UK and Ireland as well as on the corporate circuit where his mix of incisive political satire and acute comical observations on everyday life is in huge demand.
As well as his live appearances Neil’s writing credits include his very own comedy sitcom for radio It’s not Brazil it’s Northern Ireland that was broadcast on BBC radio Ulster in July 2006. Previously he was one of the main writers on Radio Ulster’s Sketch show Don’t Make Me Laugh. He as also contributed material for Television shows, including Patrick Kielty’s PK Tonight (BBC1 NI). And was employed as the head writer on The McKeever Show (3rd Series), UTV’s flagship comedy show starring Nuala McKeever.
In November 2005 he made his first appearance radio Ulster’s highly successful The Blame Game. This lead to him being invited back as a panellist no fewer than half a dozen times and once as team captain when the show was televised in February 2006.
In March 2006 he appeared in his own one-man show at The Glasgow Comedy Festival. This lead to him being invited to Headline The Biggest St Patrick’s Day Party Ever by the anti sectarian charity Nil by Mouth at the Fruit Market Glasgow in front of an audience of 1,000 the following year. In 2010 he was the Headline Act for the Best of Irish at The Edinburgh Festival (five stars The Scotsman).
Neil has supported Patrick Kielty on his Almost Live tour where he regularly played before audiences in excess of 1,000 people. In June 2001 he brought the house down at the Gagging for Bass Comedy Festival in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter where he appeared before a capacity crowd along with Perrier winner Tommy Tiernan.
In September 2003 Neil made his acting debut as Alan the 40 something business executive in Devised Cultures adaptation of the Australian playwright David Williamson’s black comedy The Coming of Stork.
