Full Biography

As finalist in both the Jimmy Carr Comedy Idol competition, and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy search, and a semi-finalist in the BBC New talent Awards 2005, Barry Dodds has taken the national circuit by storm, with his mix of surprisingly dark and irrepressibly cheeky material.

"Razor sharp humour" - Metro

Fascinated by stand-up from an early age, Barry took to the stage at the tender age of 21, and is now a firm audience favourite at clubs such as The Stand, The Comedy Store, XS Mullarkeys, Jongleurs and Raw hide - with material covering everything from failed culture bids to an obsession with ghost hunting.

Barry recently returned form Luxembourg, where he performed a solo show - and became the first ever comedian to perform on Luxembourg TV.

"winning friends with his energy and spirit…" - Chortle

With a passion for both writing and presenting, Barry will focus further on these ambitions during 2006, whilst continuing to storm the circuit both nationally and abroad, with his own unique and captivating brand of comedy.

"Very impressive" - Jasper Carrot
"One of comedy's original thinkers" - Dominic Holland
