Multi-Award winning, Irish comic Dónal Vaughan brings his first stand up show to the Edinburgh Fringe, bringing his three main passions together: Comedy, Natural History and talking about himself.

Join Dónal as he takes a self-deprecating look at his life. Routinely comparing his life to many other species in the animal kingdom to see if would have been better off being born a monkey, deer or even a dung beetle. Sometimes dark, often rude, be prepared for a fast-paced, joke-heavy, knowledge-filled stand up show.

“A distinctive, joke-heavy set with some strongly offbeat lines.” Chortle.

“Dónal Vaughan owned the stage with his sharp, punchy lines that never failed to hit home." Enterainment.ie

“Dónal has a rare ability to be funny and thought-provoking without really appearing to try. His hilarious and informative takes on science are why he’s a favorite.” Bright Club Dublin.

Dónal Vaughan's unique blend of science and comedy has proved popular with audiences, who have been entertained and enlightened by his acts.” PubSci London.
