Irish Times

His material, too, comes from genuinely unexpected directions, with a fertile mind making surprising, and very funny, connections to keep you on your toes.


Award-winning comedian Neil Delamere is one of the top acts working in the Irish comedy scene today, well known to audiences for his regular television appearances on RTE and the BBC as well as his hilarious sell-out stand up tours.
With stellar reviews as well as a number of platinum-selling DVDs under his belt, Neil has turned his attention to comedy documentaries, writing and presenting IFTA Award- and Celtic Media Award-winning TV programmes on the Vikings and St. Patrick. HisĀ  four part series on heroes from Ireland’s past, Holding out for a Hero, was recently broadcast as part of RTE 2’s autumn schedule. Never one to sit around, Neil is also back in the hot seat with The Blame Game, the perennially popular BBC panel show, back for its 10th season at the end of 2015.

Neil continues to tour across the country with performances all over Ireland including shows at the prestigious Vicar Street in Dublin and the world renowned Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival; he’s also toured extensively internationally, with appearances at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival (from which he presented the RTE television series covering the event) to name just a few. His shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival have garnered rave reviews, including a coveted five stars from The Scotsman, the premier broadsheet reviewer at the event.
Neil has also turned his hand to radio, with stints guest-presenting some of the most popular radio shows in the country including: the Ray D’Arcy Show; the John Murray Show; the Mooney Show; and the Ian Dempsey breakfast show as well the popular RTE Radio 1 radio series, Second Republic.
