“Razor sharp humour”
Barry Dodds has forged an enviable reputation for himself over the past few years, charming audiences nationwide, with his uniquely tailored combination of disarming wit and wry, down-to-earth observational humour.
A finalist in both the Jimmy Carr Comedy Idol competition, and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy search, and a semi-finalist in the BBC New talent Awards 2005, Barry has forged a enviable career on the stand up circuit with friendly cheeky banter and fantastic well written stories and jokes.
Fascinated by stand-up from an early age, Barry took to the stage at the tender age of 21, and is now a firm audience favourite at clubs such as Jongleurs, Highlight, The Stand, The Frog and Bucket, The Last Laugh, XS Malarkey and many many more. In 2006 Barry jetted off to Luxembourg where he performed a solo show - and became the first ever comedian to perform on Luxembourg TV and in 2007 appeared in the Avalon Comedy Zone at the Edinburgh Fringe. He also recently starred the hit BBC2 Sitcom "Hebburn".
