There’s a point beyond burnout where all you can do is laugh, and funny woman Deirdre O’Kane has well and truly reached it.  Catch her brilliant stand-up show, Demented, at London’s Soho Theatre from 19th to 22nd July at 7pm.

Tickets are on sale now and available at Wednesday 19th April.

The last few years have been something of a whirlwind for Deirdre O’Kane.  A co-founder of Comic Relief in Ireland, she spearheaded the hugely popular RTÉ Does Comic Relief which raised over 6 million euros over the Covid-19 pandemic.  Not only that but she also recently fronted her own talk shows, Deirdre O’Kane Talks Funny on RTÉ as well as a brand-new series, The Deirdre O’Kane Show on Sky Max.

One of Ireland’s favourite comedians, Deirdre never strays too far from her live stand-up roots and this year she is really excited to return to Edinburgh with her brand-new show Demented, a box fresh hour of pure escapism and side-splitting laughs.


Deirdre O’Kane is an Irish comedian, actress, and presenter. She was born on March 25, 1968, in County Louth, Ireland.

O’Kane started her career as a stand-up comedian in the 1990s and quickly became a well-known performer in Ireland and the UK. She has also appeared on various TV shows in both countries, including “Live at the Apollo,” “The Panel,” and “The Apprentice: You’re Fired!”.

In addition to her comedy work, O’Kane has also acted in several films and TV shows, such as “Intermission,” “Noble,” and “Moone Boy.” She has been nominated for several awards for her acting, including an Irish Film and Television Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film “Noble.”
