TWO TIME EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE

Carl is one of the finest storytellers on the circuit - his shows are full of freewheeling whimsy and affable daftness, plus you're never more than 20 seconds away from a killer punchline!

Carl started performing stand-up in 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting young comedians. His conversational, silly sense of humour saw him win a host of awards (Chortle Best Newcomer 2007, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 among others) and become a regular at all of the finest comedy clubs in the UK and Ireland.

In 2009, Carl performed his debut solo show Relax Everyone, it’s Carl Donnelly! at the Edinburgh Fringe for which he was nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. Since then, Carl has returned to Edinburgh with three further solo shows, including his 2013 Fosters Comedy Award nominated one.

Recently, Carl has been developing as an international act, with a successful tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2013 and a second in 2015, as well as performing at the biggest comedy festivals in the world (Montreal Just for Laughs, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Kilkenny Cat Laughs etc).

“Donnelly has developed a style that is the antithesis of the loud, sweaty, manic comic so prevalent on the telly and live tours at the moment. This is stand up with valium: near horizontal levels of louche that take the mundane stories of everyday life and turns them into stretches of self deprecating silliness.” The Guardian

“Excellent, fast-rising comic with pacy anecdotal routines.” Sunday Times

Plus support from Nico Yearwood, John Ashmore, Chloe Petts and Hannah Silvester
