Ciaran Lyons is verifiably one of Australia’s fastest-rising stand-up comedy stars and media personalities.
Since being awarded the Artists’ Choice award at the Wild West Comedy Fest in 2015 and Next Gen Comedian by the Perth Comedy Festival at just sixteen years of age, Ciaran has been nominated for Best Comedy at FRINGE WORLD, hand-picked by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for their prestigious Comedy Zone showcase of the hottest new comics in Australia and was honoured alongside Tame Impala, Troye Sivan and Danny Green by The Sunday Times as one of WA’s Hottest 100 People of 2016.
His TV and radio credits include regular guest reporting for Channel Ten’s The Project, stand-up performances on ABC TV’s Comedy Bites *Gala, triple j’*s Good Az Friday live show (broadcast from Melbourne Town Hall for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival). He regularly presents on national youth station triple j, where he has been heard solo hosting every show from the early morning shift to the Breakfast Show and Drive.
Now based in Sydney, Lyons is a regular at all the major comedy venues and festivals across Australia and is a firm fixture in Australia’s stand-up comedy and media landscape.
