The 23-year-old is in prestigious company for what used to be the Perrier Awards, and his show - At Large - has been seen by the likes of Steve Coogan, Seann Walsh and Jack Dee.

“I’ve been having a ball with audiences of all ages over here in Edinburgh,” he told RTE Entertainment.

“To be nominated for this award like my heroes Tommy Tiernan and Dylan Moran were before, is just surreal.

“I’m definitely expecting a free pint in my local The Dragon in Tallaght now.”
