Tipperay comic and former secondary-school teacher, much of his material derives from his crazy experiences teaching.
Described to the Irish Examiner that his tribulations at the hands of rowdier students as ‘karma.’ John explains “like so many comedians, I was a bit of a joker in school . We used to drive my Irish teacher absolutely around the bend by humming quietly at her. Fifteen years later and I’m standing in front of a class that’s doing the same thing!”
Described by many as one of the most talented and original up and coming young comedians in Ireland today, Ashlee’s unique blend of quirky humour, sharp writing and brutally honest yet hilarious personal tales have left audience members in tears all over Ireland and beyond. Most of them were crying with laughter but we can’t be sure about all of them.
Ashlee was crowned winner of the 2016 Show Me The Funny Competition and in 2017 won the Ireland Regional Final of Funny Women. Recently Ashlee has performed on Virgin Media TV on The Craic Den Comedy Club TV show and performed at Iveagh Gardens Comedy Festival. Ashlee likes long walks on the beach and will not rest until she has petted all of the cats.
