Irishman Andrew Ryan returns to Edinburgh this summer with his quintessentially Irish storytelling, friendly demeanour and cheekiness in toll. Andrew will be performing his highly anticipated follow up show, The Life Of Ryan, to audiences nightly at the Gilded Balloon, The Wee Room, at 8pm throughout the festival.
He is 32 years old and couldn't be happier or could he? Everyone around him is getting married and buying houses. In his latest offering, The Life Of Ryan the Corkman explores the direction in which his life has gone and his frustrations along the way.
This natural observational stand up made his comedy circuit debut in 2008 when he spontaneously entered an open mic contest.

In 2014 his YouTube hit for TalkSport, 'Chelsea Fans Claim To Know About Players That Don't Exist', attracted more than 1 million views.
