Ciaran Lyons is one of Australia’s brightest up and coming Comedians. At only 20 years old, he regularly performs at comedy clubs all over the country, and opens for big name comedians such as Akmal, Lawrence Mooney and Sammy J and Randy.
He is also a presenter on national youth station triple j, and has regularly appeared as a Metro Whip Presenter for Network Ten’s The Project. He was also selected for 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Comedy Zone – showcasing five of Australia’s best new comedians.
Building on this momentum, Ciaran featured in the 2016 WA Sunday Times 100 Hotlist – along with the likes of Danny Green, Tame Impala and Troye Sivan. After supporting Harith Iskander on tour, he tweeted to over 300,000 followers saying “watch this space, he’s gonna be big”.
He has already performed two Comedy Festival solo shows to sell out crowds since winning “PICF Next Gen Comedian” in 2013, and has appeared at prestigious events such as ABC Comedy Bites Gala, Comedy Under the Stars to an audience of 4,000, and Triple J’s Good Az Friday.
