Multi award winning comedian Barry Murphy has been hosting corporate events as MC or After Dinner speaker for the last 20 years. He is one of the few Irish comedians who writes routines specific to the conference/event theme.
Barry provides an alternative and comical slant on conference presentations. He buries himself in the company and re-emerges as a visiting consultant who incorporates slides of sales figures/targets, advertising campaigns, company outings etc in his presentation.
His approach ensures that delegates embrace the ideas outlined in the conference and enjoy an extremely humorous and uplifting presentation. Barry also specialises in Golf outings – Prize giving, after dinner speech and analysis of the CEO’s swing.
Since co-founding the Dublin Comedy Cellar in the early ’90s, Barry’s been at the centre of Irish stand-up. Whether as one-third of Après Match, as his German alter ego Günther, or as his surreal and wonderful self, Barry is “one of the high kings of Irish comedy” (Hot Press) and is simply not to be missed.
The last few years have seen him concentrating on writing and performing Irish Pictorial Weekly, Soupy Norman, Après Match and Irish Pictorial Weekly.
