One of Irelands very best, Kevin Gildea began his comedy career in the sketch group Mr Trellis, alongside Barry Murphy and Ardal O Hanlon. Kevin co-founded The Comedy Cellar, Dublins longest-running comedy club. Gildea's mild manner and quirky absurdist viewpoint, create side-splittingly funny ruminations that have seen him performed all over the world, and see his Edinburgh Fringe shows regularly achieve critical acclaim and sell-out runs.
He has also written for Irish Pictorial Weekly and appeared on The Stand Up Show and The Amnesty International Comedy Special.

He has appeared in Father Ted (playing Father Cave in the episode set on a plane), the six-part 1999 BBC2 sketch show Haywire and is a regular on RTEs topical panel game The View. He has also appeared in BBC Radio 4′s The OShow, His sister Ann was a co founder of The Nulas, so the whole family does funny, very well.
