Keith Farnan



Formerly a solicitor on Death Row, Keith began his career in Ireland, where he quickly reached headliner status at The Laughter Lounge in Dublin. He shortly after made the leap to move to London, rapidly became a household name and the talk of Comedy Clubs around the UK.

Best known for his appearances on BBC One’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, stand up comedian Keith is an engaging and sharp-witted performer who personifies Irish charm.

He has performed stand up all over the world, from Montreal to Amsterdam to Hong Kong. His many Edinburgh Festival shows have proved a powerful mix of personal and political and have sold out at major comedy festivals in the UK as well as the Soho Theatre and Royal Festival Hall in London.

Keith’s many TV appearances include Live from Amsterdam (Showtime), Live at The Comedy Store (Comedy Central), The Social (RTE), Most Annoying People (BBC Three), One Night Stand (Dave) and Money, Money, Money: Keith Farnan versus the Economy (RTE).


Keith was excellent and the feedback I have received from people across the firm has been really positive. I was delighted with Keith's performance and we definitely made the right choice. Keith was thoroughly entertaining and everyone left with a smile on their face. I don't underestimate the challenge of presenting virtually to 600 accountants following 12 months of lockdown but Keith was absolutely on the money!”

“It was a real pleasure to have Keith join us for our Sales Kick Off event. After a fun briefing call, he was able to weave in all the nuances of our business to create a funny, creative and relevant session. We didn't set him an easy task - we said make 250 people from Europe, Middle East and Africa laugh, about Cyber Security - but he did just that! I'd have no hesitation in using him again”

Keith Farnan attended our corporate end of year event in December 2020, and all I can say is “WOW” he blew the team away. He was so engaging, hilarious and took the meaning of a virtual entertainer to a whole new level.  Keith took the time in his preparation to truly understand the company and its people, so we received a truly tailored session.  He interacted with our staff and created a high energized and exciting performance. I would not hesitate in giving Keith a call again and again. He is brilliant!!! Thank you, Keith, for making our evening.

As a candidate, having to have the word "virtual" placed next to your committee's fundraiser is never ideal.  But Keith managed to keep everyone on the Zoom entertained to the point that for the half hour of his set, everyone forgot that it was a virtual fundraiser and simply was able to laugh along with Keith and whomever was engaging with him at the moment.  Keith truly saved the fundraiser from mediocrity and I received many compliments on his ability to keep the laughs coming.  I highly recommend you have Keith at your event and allow him to take your guests on a ride that they won't want to end.
