Ardal O'Hanlon

  • Comedian and Actor
  • Appeared in Father Ted, My Hero and Death in Paradise
  • Comedy Awards Host & Presenter

Irish actor Ardal O'Hanlon is best known for his leading roles in BBC hit series Death in Paradise, long running sitcom My Hero, and much loved Channel 4 comedy Father Ted.

The original host of The Stand Up Show is also a prolific author and an established actor - with credits including Blessed. As a comedian Ardal’s style is much closer to Father Ted than My Hero: With his Irish charm and gloriously surreal observations he has charmed crowds from Australia to Holland.

Ardal’s extensive TV credits include as well as the hugely successful Father Ted; My Hero; Doctor Who; Skins; several series hosting The Stand Up Show, and recent panel show appearances include Argumental, Michael McIntyre’s Road show, and Death In Paradise.

Ardal’s debut novel The Talk of the Town proved an enormous hit, remaining on the Best Seller charts for more than 6 months. It was recently voted one of the 1001 books to read before you die.
