About this event

The last few years have been something of a whirlwind for Deirdre O’Kane. A co-founder of Comic Relief in Ireland, she fronted the critically and audience acclaimed RTÉ Does Comic Relief which raised more than 6 million euros to help those most in need as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and reached in excess of 1.4 million viewers across Ireland. She recently fronted her own talk show - Deirdre O’Kane Talks Funny - in the primetime Saturday night slot on RTÉ One and will debut a brand new series, The Deirdre O’Kane Show, with Sky in 2021. Deirdre will appear alongside Boy George, Aston Merrygold and Vogue Williams on the new Fox-developed talent show, The Big Deal, premiering later this year on Virgin Media Television.

Deirdre is also known as the voice of smash-hit Gogglebox on Virgin Media which returns for a seventh season in 2021. In recent years she has hosted the revamped IFTA Film & Drama Awards for RTÉ and Virgin Media Television, and reached the finals of the national broadcaster’s fan-favourite Dancing with the Stars in its third season in 2018. One of Ireland’s favourite comedians, Deirdre never strays too far from her live stand-up roots; a box fresh hour of side splitting laughs is in the works for a new tour slated to start in 2022.

A six-time Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTA) nominee, Deirdre was awarded Best Lead Actress (Film) 2015 for her role as Christina Noble opposite Liam Cunningham, Sarah Greene and Brendan Coyle in Stephen Bradley’s feature Noble. Released in September 2014, Noble won Jury and Audience awards at the Boston Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Newport Beach Festival, Nashville and Dallas Festivals.

Other feature film credits include the BAFTA winning Festival for Channel 4, Intermission directed by John Crowley for Parallel Fims, Killing Bono directed by Nick Hamm for Cinema Three and Dollhouse, directed by Kirsten Sheridan for Factory Films.
