As a captivating TV presenter, comic artist, and enthusiastic narrator, Aindrias de Staic has brought vitality, magnetism and charisma to Irish screens and stages. He is an actor, musician, comedian and modern-day raconteur. Born in Ireland but belonging to the world; as a performer, Aindrias cannot be pigeonholed. The "wild-eyed shock of Celtic unpredictability" fuses music, theatre, comedy, and storytelling with extraordinary results. His wild Atlantic style is as unique to the west of Ireland as are his antics and wit. Internationally, Aindrias is renowned for his autobiographical storytelling show “Around the World on 80 quid” which won Best Solo Show at New Zealand Fringe, secured Aindrias the nomination for Most Outstanding Performer at the Dunedin Fringe Festival 2008 and amassed rave reviews throughout Australia. “The year I got Younger”, initially created as a spoken word novel, based loosely on Aindrias’ own adventures in Australia. The show, written and performed by Aindrias, was nominated for The Malcom Hardee Award at Edinburgh Fringe for comic originality. “The Man from Moogaga”, another superbly intelligent de Staic story, funded by DEIS, proved a huge hit as the opening event for Westport Arts Festival in 2015 after winning the Galway Water Award for Best Comedy at 2014 Galway Fringe.
