Teen comedian on the rise

Seventeen-year-old Ciaran Lyons (pictured), of Sorrento, started stand-up comedy just before his 15th birthday.

‘I saw it (stand up comedy) on the TV and I was just like ‘I might give that a go’,’ Lyons said.

‘Most people actually think about it for a while and put it off, but I just went straight into it and it was only when I got to the place for the first time that I was like ‘oh wait, what am I doing?”
