Richard Hanrahan is a stand-up comedian of some repute. Based in Edinburgh, this alternative comedy act emerged from wordy beginnings, with some material about dads and dogs, had has emerged from a cocoon of study to become a butterfly of post-modern, self-aware nonsense far too interested in the fringe of what funny means to actually bother writing jokes. But hey, if you like your noggin felated by a nearly Scottish comedian, maybe he's your guy.
He's been at the Edinburgh Fringe on and off since 2004, including stints with the critically acclaimed double-act Hitch and Mitch (2011 & 2010 **** The Skinny), the equally well received sketch group with his schoolhood friends Marigold (2007 & 2006 ****Threeweeks) and eventually as a stand-up on his own, including a debut show in 2018 provocatively titled Richard Hanrahan Is Doing This (***** TheFountain, **** The Skinny). Look at these things in more details on the projects page.
Stand-up credits including being nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year in 2011, reaching the BBC New Comedy Award Final 20 in 2010 as a runner-up in the Glasgow Heat, and placing in the top three of the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year also in 2010 . He happened to win the very prestigious Edinburgh University Stand Up Champion Award in 2009 which to many is utterly meaningless, but means he can claim to be an "award-winning" comic, so there's that. He was also nominated for a Student Radio Award for Best Speech Program as producer of Fresh Air's Great Comedy Showcase.
Outside of comedy, he is also a Graphic Designer who operates under ChumChi Designs, tries his hand at board game design and more professionally known as a Videographer/Interviewer/Content Producer.
Naturally, if you are looking for his skills as a writer or for voiceover work, you can make enquiries over on his facebook page.
