"Our headliner Karl Spain is probably best known in Ireland for his TV series Karl Spain Wants A Woman. In 2009 he filmed Karl Spain Wants to Rock but did not get a woman from that show.

"Apart from his own series he was also on Operation Transformation in 2017 and has performed stand up on television all over the world – the U.S, the Middle East, Australia and even as far away as England. He has also appeared on Liffey Laughs, The Late Late Show, The Panel, Tubridy Tonight, The Afternoon Show and The Offside Show.

"As well as being a regular performer at Kilkenny Cat Laughs, the Galway Comedy Festival, the Vodafone Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Montreal Just for Laughs. He has toured Australia as well as the U.S. and South Africa. He has toured with Kevin Bridges and Ed Byrne.

"Supporting Karl is the star of TV3's Blind Date, Fabu-D. Fabio David, better known as FABU-D is a comedian, MC, entertainer and actor and based in Dublin, Ireland. Born in Nigeria, FABU-D channels the African man in Europe and embraces the Irish culture throughout his live sets. He quickly made a name for himself while performing on the streets of Dublin and creating viral videos which have amassed over 150 millions views online."
