Andréa Farrell is a funny girl from Dublin. A bright spark in Irish comedy, she quickly made an impact as a finalist in the RTE New Comedy Awards, a TV showcase for promising comedians that spring boarded her onto a staple of Summer festival slots like the Vodafone Comedy Festival, Kilkenny Cats Laughs, Electric Picnic and the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. Andrea broke new ground recently taking a camper van around Ireland with her chums The Lads of Comedy, bringing their anarchic ‘supergroup’ approach to stages near and far. When she’s not opening for comedy heavyweights like Stewart Francis, Marc Maron or David O’Doherty, she’s doing regular slots at the International Comedy Club, where her laconic style and irreverent stage presence are a breath of fresh air to the Dublin audiences.

Here she writes some tales she’s not yet brave enough to tell onstage.
