Edwin Sammon has firmly established himself as one of the most popular comedians in the country, his unpredictable and crowd pleasing style saw him win the Tedfest best comedian award in 2011 and led to him supporting the likes of Jason Byrne, Phil Jupitus and Ardal O'Hanlon while performing at major festivals and comedy clubs across Ireland and the U.K. In 2013 he was part of the sold out nationwide "Lads Of Comedy" tour and then came to national attention as Fr. Gabriel in "Bridget and Eamon" and as co-presenter on "Republic Of Telly" .
