Belfast Telegraph 10 Ten Highlights of the 2010 Fringe.
"Straight faced comedy with a good sense of comic timing"
“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
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. Since then, Lorcan’s one man show ‘Geekdom’ has appeared in the Belfast Fringe 2010, The Black Box, Belfast, the Norwich Fringe 2011, and 10 Days in Dublin Festival 2012. Now performing regularly in Belfast, Dublin, and Derry, Lorcan has supported such artists as Ardal O’Hanlon, Colin Murphy, Kevin Eldon, Bec Hill and Kevin McAleer and also appeared on Today FM, BBC Ulster, BBC Radio 4, Newstalk, Phantom FM, and the Comedy Corner of Dublin City FM. He has also written comedy pieces for Buzz Magazine, Six Magazine, Temple Bar Review and Sun Zoom Spark.
