Aisling Bea is an award-winning stand-up comedian, writer and actor.
Since winning prestigious comedy competition So You Think You’re Funny? in 2012, Aisling has become one of the most in-demand performers in UK and Irish comedy, a status cemented when she won the British Comedy Award for Best Female TV Comic in 2014.
In 2013 she was nominated for the Fosters Comedy Award for Best Newcomer for her debut Edinburgh show C’est La Bea, which received a plethora of 4 and 5 star reviews in its sold out run. Her second Edinburgh hour, 2015’s Plan Bea, was also a major hit, selling out its entire run before the festival had even started.
As well as her live work, Aisling has been fast establishing herself as a regular face on television. 2016 saw her return to More4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats in her new role of team captain. She has performed stand-up on BBC 1’s Live At The Apollo, BBC 3’s Russell Howard’s Good News and Channel 4’s Comedy Gala. She has also appeared regularly on panel shows such as Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown, BBC1’s Would I Lie To You and BBC2’s QI. In 2015 she was part of the team for Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night alongside David Mitchell and Jeremy Paxman which aired live throughout the election results.
Charlie Baker’s instant likeability and charming delivery style has earned him a reputation as ‘a superior take on the modern showman’ (The Guardian). He is a popular face on TV panels shows having appeared as team captain on A Short History Of Everything Else (Channel 4), two series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), Rob Brydon’s Christmas Special (BBC1), Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live 2012 & 2013 (BBC3) and The Comedy Store (Comedy Central).

A finalist in both the BBC and Channel 4 New Comedy Awards, Jarlath’s first published book How To Break Bad News was an instant best-seller. Comprising a collection of his beautifully illustrated while hilariously dark greeting cards, the book gained many celebrity fans including Ardal O’Hanlon who called it “Original, funny and deliciously wrong!” Jarlath’s second book Putting A Ring On It – What Not To Do When Attempting To Get Married, was released in April 2011, featured more than 200 brand new illustrations and became a cult hit.
