5 clips from female Irish comedians to keep us giggling

Covid, Trump mayhem… It’s all feeling way too much – and it’s only the first week in January. For a lighter distraction, these fabulously funny Irish ladies are keeping us entertained. Watch and enjoy   


Joanne McNally 

Live show highlights

Her entire Instagram feed is a joy, with hilarious insight into daily life during lockdown. There’s an array of moments to choose from but this clip from Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club is a gem.

Anna Clifford 

WFH – Expectation vs Reality

Dublin comic Anna Clifford is well known on the comic scene here and in the UK (she lives in London). Among the many relatable clips on her feed is the below – we are ALL Anna in Lockdown 3.0.

Enya Martin 

Dry January 

The Dublin comic’s Facebook comedy page ‘Giz a Laugh’ has more than a quarter of a million followers alone and her Instagram account is just as hilarious.

A particular favourite is her recent clip on her attempt on ‘Dry January.’ It is gold.

Sharon Horgan

Catastrophe highlights 

Prepare to go down a Catastrophe-type hole, as once you start watching, one clip is never enough. The award-winning series is too good to amount to one hilarious clip alone so below is a highlight reel from season 3. The show deserves to be re-watched in its entirety for full appreciation.

Aisling Bea

Single talk

The Irish actress and comedian has such a vast catalogue when it comes to brilliant moments of hilarity but her stand-up show Living with Yourself is a personal favourite. Below, her words on being single, growing up in the countryside and how some men can be intimidated by funny women is a must-watch.
