Gentle in his outlook but passionate in his delivery, Derek Ryan is best known as a self-effacing gag-heavy storysmith. Equally at home with the smart and the silly, the profane and the profound, his on-stage likeability disguises a keen wit and incisive world view, but from angles you might not expect. A warm-hearted & verbally dexterous performer who gets the audience onside within seconds, this veteran of the Irish circuit is set to become a hugely popular act in the UK.
Since the mid-noughties Derek Ryan has played all over Ireland, the UK, mainland Europe and in the U.S. from New York to L.A. A regular festival comedian, his two previous 1-hour shows Mongrel & Time Lord have been played to packed houses and he is currently working on his third solo show; Near Death Experience.
