Comedian & MC
Comedian & MC Barry Murphy, is the co-founder of the Comedy Cellar – Ireland’s longest running comedy venue, and is easily recognised as one of the “ten kings of Irish Comedy over the last 20 years” (Hot Press Magazine).
Barry Murphy has successfully hosted events like The Irish Film Awards; two Amnesty “Best Of Irish” Showcases for Granada TV, the Irish Business Internet Awards as well as numerous corporate and charity functions. Just ask Renault, Levi’s, Thorn EMI, Pan International, ICS, Microsoft and many more. The last few years have seen THE Comedian & MC concentrating on writing and performing Après Match, Irish Pictorial Weekly and Soupy Norman.
Barry has been hosting corporate events as MC or After Dinner speaker for the last 20 years. He is one of the few Irish comedians who writes routines specific to the conference/event theme. Barry provides an alternative and comical slant on conference presentations. He buries himself in the company and re-emerges as a visiting consultant who incorporates slides of sales figures/targets, advertising campaigns, company outings etc. in his presentation. His approach ensures that delegates embrace the ideas outlined in the conference and enjoy an extremely humorous and uplifting presentation.
