Ghost Train Willy Sharon Mannion

Sharon is a well recognised stand up, receiving rave reviews wherever she goes.

…faultless performance – rich in indignity and passion that demolishes all before it

…turbo-charged – started at fever pitch and stayed there
Evening Standard, London

Having made her debut at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs (Fringe) Festival 2005, within a couple of months she was a finalist in the Bulmer’s International Festival- Best Newcomer competition. She is now a regular at clubs all over the country and beyond; The Ha’Penny (also as MC), Capital Comedy club, Bewley’s Comedy, International (also as MC), Stand up at Bankers, Comedy at the Sheds, Woolshed, Crawdaddys, Laughter Lounge (Dublin, Waterford, Galway), Cuba, Basement Comedy club (Galway), Empire (Belfast), Revolution (Waterford), Comedy Den (Limerick), LV (Cork), The Stand (Edinburgh, Glasgow), Jongleurs (UK and Ireland)…the list goes on. She won the Toilet Duck-Best Stand up award at the Fr. Ted Festival (Tedfest ’07), and in July 07 she came third in the UK and Ireland Funny Women competition at the Comedy Store, London.

She is also a successful actress, having appeared in Prosperity and The Clinic (RTE), and Ros na Run (TG4), which considering she doesn’t speak fluent Irish was no mean feat!
