Ailish McCarthy

Ailish has been on the comedy scene nearly 5 years but has slowly risen through the ranks in Irish comedy. Some of her videos went viral in the pandemic on TikTok, with one of them being featured in Q102,, Dublin Live, Lovin Dublin and FM104. 

Ailish also appeared as a guest host with the comedy crowd and writes for the satirical Newscheck Comedy. Ailish has also appeared on Virgin Media’s hooked on podcast and Rte 2’s series of life changing moments. Ailish was on the committee for comedy safety standards and one of the founding members of the Irish Comedy Guide.

Ailish’s material is punchy and built up entirely on self deprecation, but endearing enough to draw the audience in. She has gigged in Vancouver, London, Edinburgh and all over Ireland. A regular at festivals, Ailish is the resident MC at the Hazelwood Tent at EP, has gigged in the Iveagh Gardens, Night and Day festival, At the Manor, Bray comedy festival, Ranelagh arts festival, Kaleidascope festival and wild roots festival. Ailish had supported Fred Cooke, Damo Clarke and Joe Rooney.
