Tadhg Hickey is a comedian, actor, writer, director and musician.
He is creative director of critically acclaimed Irish sketch comedy troupe, CCCahoots.
“Widely regarded as the most exciting troupe in Irish comedy at the moment” – Sunday Times.
He wrote, directed and starred in the RTE sitcom, The School, and has written and starred in numerous prize winning short films including Uisce Beatha (Filmmakers’ Prize, DC Shorts festival, Washington). His first solo show, In One Eye, out the Other, was the most nominated production at Dublin Fringe Awards 2019. Tadhg is very open about his own alcoholism and wanted to create a show that would offer something fresh to discussions about alcoholism/addiction and mental health without being preachy or depressing. His aim was to disarm with surreal humour and sneak the poignancy in the back door. Irish audiences – including many who have been affected by alcoholism – have been flocking to the show and post-show discussions.
