A critically acclaimed comedian, an award winning radio broadcaster and best-selling author, Colm O’Regan is one of Ireland’s most in-demand after-dinner comedians. He also MCs awards ceremonies, corporate communications days and has acted as a panel moderator, bringing an entertaining touch to economics in Ireland, Europe and the USA. He brings smart topical comedy to whatever audience he hosts and, in the case of MCing duties, is able to switch seamlessly between that humour and the business at hand. He can adjust tone and content depending on the audience but still keep it sharp.
Since Covid, Colm has taken his skills to online events. While acknowledging it isn’t the same as in-person experience, Colm has used his skills and the technology available to bring laughter to thousands whether on Zoom, MS Teams, Google Meet, Inxpo and a variety of other platforms.
With a unique combination of fifteen years of stand-up comedy experience, ten years of humorous business, political, social commentary through the Kilkenomics festival, BBC Business, RTE Drivetime and nearly four hundred columns for the Irish Examiner, Colm O’Regan is the perfect choice to round off an online meeting or just a hard week at the office. Since lockdown started, he has already entertained employees and clients at companies such as Accenture, PayPal, Amazon, Intelligo, DocuSign, QuickBooks, NUIG’s Bright Club and more
“This week saw the fabulous Colm O’Regan host, in his own inimitable style, our very own Funny Friday quiz. A phenomenal job with smiles and laughs the entire time. What a great way to start the weekend”. Padraig Gill CEO Intelligo Software.
