“McGrane’s set goes into the kind of detail about cult comics and movies that would have even Jonathan Ross’s head spinning.” – Alternative Ulster Magazine


“Lorcan McGrane’s show is full of beautiful green women, improbable superhero based antics, and most importantly, lots of very good jokes” – Norwich Fringe Festival


"McGrane’s self-effacing set is esoteric and always funny."- culturenorthernireland.org

Lorcan is originally from Monaghan. He started stand up in 2007 while doing a PhD on Superhero Movies and gigged in Norwich, London, and Edinburgh, where he performed Free Fringe shows in 2008 and 2009.
