This year’s comedy stage at Electric Picnic is one of the most exciting in the 10 year history of the event. Pride of place goes to global superstar and loveable curmudgeon, DYLAN MORAN. The Navan native was recently voted the 14th greatest stand-up comedian of all time in a Channel 4 poll and it’s easy to see why. Star and writer of the cult TV series 'Black Books'(CH4), Moran’s acting credits also include starring roles in the hit movies 'Shaun Of The Dead', 'Notting Hill' and 'Run Fat Boy Run'. With 5 number 1 selling DVDs to his credit, Dylan is quite simply an unmissable Festival treat.

Picnic stalwart DAVID O’DOHERTY returns to the scene of his finest ever hour and promises to try and fix everything in his own lo-fi inimitable style. A sometimes presenter of 'Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC 2) and a regular on 'QI' and 'Have I Got News For You' (BBC2), David’s loyal band of followers are sure to raise the roof off of the comedy tent, but in a very gentle fashion.

Unassuming, provocative, raw, fresh but above all hilariously funny, Albany, Georgia born REGINALD D HUNTER also makes a very welcome return. His style is honest, his material is controversial yet his delivery is as smooth as fine silk, in short Reg's performances never fail to engage and enthrall.

Renowned for his cutting edge comedy and intelligent social comedy, loveable scamp ANDREW MAXWELL will show why he has been voted the 'Best Live Stand Up' for the past 3 years in the UK. With sold-out shows around the world, Andrew's TV appearances include,'8 Out Of 10 Cats' and 'Mock The Week'.

Best known for his work on the 'Republic Of Telly'(RTE2), BERNARD O’SHEA is a fizzing, iridescent ball of sheer energy. A fast talking, fast thinking comedian that invigorates any stage with his presence alone and the added bonus for Bernard is that his Mammy lives just 6 miles from Stradbally Estate.

Familiar to Irish TV audiences as the gormless Fergus from the 'Spar' ad campaign, FRED COOKE delivers a style of comedy that simply cannot be imitated and his high octane brand of surreal genius promises to be a festival highlight.

There's lots more besides including the sauve and sophisticated, DERMOT WHELAN, high stakes improvisational comedy from the DUBLIN COMEDY IMPROV, the 12th best German comedian currently living in Ireland, GUNTHER GRUN, the legendary laconic Tyrone man KEVIN MCALEER, three of the hottest new acts, NIAMH MARRON, MICKEY BARTLETT and AL PORTER (remember where you saw them first).

If one were to make a list of the best Irish comics on the circuit then any of the following would be top of the list. PATRICK MCDONNELL, KARL SPAIN, KEVIN GILDEA, JOHN COLLEARY, PAUL TYLAK, COLM O’REGAN, JOE ROONEY, IAN COPPINGER, JARTLATH REGAN, FOIL ARMS AND HOG, ELANOR TIERNAN, ERIC LALOR, DAMIAN CLARK, CHRIS KENT, WILLA WHITE, KEITH FARNAN and many more are the calibre of act that would grace any Festival anywhere in the world but fortunately for Picnicers they will all be at this year’s event.
