Alchemy is a new show from comedian Gearóid Farrelly in which he is pretty certain he will be able to solve all of the world’s problems. To start with science needs more laughs, we need more superstar comebacks and Conor McGregor should just stop talking.
Gearóid has appeared at comedy festivals all over the world, touring with the likes of Joan Rivers, Patton Oswalt and Sarah Millican. He recently appeared on the BBC radio 4 panel show “An Elephant in the Room” and can be heard on his podcast “Fascinated” where he tracks down his childhood heroes!

Gearóid Farrelly’s comedy career got off to a flying start when in the space of a few short weeks he was a finalist in the prestigious “So You Think You’re Funny?” competition at the Edinburgh Festival and winner of Bulmers Nuthin Butt Funny Newcomer competition at the Bulmers festival in Dublin.
A polished live performer, Gearóid’s stand-up appearances for television include “Stand & Deliver”, “Tonight With Craig Doyle” and as a guest of Ardal O’Hanlon for Dave’s “One Night Stand”. In 2012 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Festival with his show “Turbulence” winning a five star review in the process (read it here).
He was then invited to support comedy royalty and living legend Joan Rivers for the Dublin dates of her “Now or Never” tour, following these dates Joan Rivers once again asked him to open for her at one of the largest venues on her UK tour, which was filmed for her reality show.
He recently toured the UK as a support act for Sarah Millican. He is a regular at all major Irish festivals. He toured Ireland many times with Neil Delamere in Ireland. In 2019 he supported Patton Oswalt for his Irish tour dates.
Gearóid is the host of the popular podcast “Fascinated” where he chats to people he is a big fan of about their career and work. The series is a must for fans of 90s pop culture. He has interviewed Grammy Winners, Emmy Winners, Oscar Nominees, Eurovision Winners, Tony Winners, Politicians and Olympians. Last summer he interviewed his favourite actress “Cagney and Lacey” star Tyne Daly on stage at the Galway Film Fleadh.
