Aidan Greene is undoubtedly Ireland’s foremost stammering comedian. Since stuttering his way into comedy in 2010 he’s become a regular headliner in comedy clubs across Ireland. He is also a regular performer at every major Irish comedy festival including the Vodafone Comedy Festival, Longitude, Indiependance and The Cat Laughs as well being a regular tour support for some of Ireland’s top comedians. From 2016 to 2019 Aidan had consecutive sell-out runs with his solo shows “(500) Days of Stammer”, “Stutter Island”, “Eternal Sunshine of the Stammer Man” and “Did I Stutter?”. These shows were subsequently performed to acclaim in Dublin, Galway, Albuquerque, and Montreal. Last year he returned to the Edinburgh Fringe for another sold-out run with his show “I Know What You Did Last Stammer”. Following this he performed the show at the Dublin Fringe festival.
Last year he hosted “The Stammies”: the British Stammering Associations first ever stammering awards. You can also see Aidan on the Try Channel, one of Ireland’s biggest YouTube Channels, which has over a million subscribers.
