Jarlath Regan is an all-rounder, but his talent for stand-up was spotted early. His first few gigs earned him places in the finals of every new act competition, tour support spots for Ardal O’Hanlon, Marc Maron and Jack Whitehall, invitations to the world’s biggest comedy festivals and television appearances on the BBC, NBC and Comedy Central.

As a presenter and podcaster he has won a legion of loyal fans through the creation of his multi-award-winning global hit podcast An Irishman Abroad which is streamed by more than a million listeners worldwide. Jarlath’s ability to extract honesty from the likes of Sir Bob Geldof, Gabriel Byrne, Boy George and the late Sir Terry Wogan has become legendary. 

Jarlath’s other credits include Tonight at the Palladium (ITV), Stand up Central (Comedy Central)  Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3) Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up (Comedy Central), Last Comic Standing (NBC), Live at The Stand Comedy Club (BBC Radio Scotland), The Blame Game (BBC Radio Ulster) and The Apprentice You’re Fired (TV3). 

Jarlath is also an outspoken advocate for equality and organ donor awareness. After donating a kidney to his brother he penned his hugely successful one man stand-up show Organ Freeman to tell his story and raise vital awareness of live donation. The show won rave reviews, sold out its run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Leicester Square, Vicar Street and Soho Theatre and Tatler Magazine named Jarlath their Comedy Man Of The Year.

On top of all of this, Jarlath has published two books of his illustrations. He also sells a range of twisted greeting cards for every occasion that can be found on his website, www.jigser.com.
