Aidan Killian, investment banker turned comedian, now consistently writes and performs the most committed, knottiest, issue-comedy shows on the Fringe. Chortle is on a one year world comedy tour.
He is one of Ireland's most traveled comedians having sold out rooms in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Byron Bay, Sydney, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Netherlands, USA and now he is proud to be returning to Edinburgh as part of Heroes of the Fringe for his fifth solo show, The Money Shot.
The Money Shot is a thought provoking, witty and inspiring show that explores the history of money and how it impacts society. Aidan asks challenging questions, Would you die for what you believe in and answers it, Yes. If I was ninety.
Aidan is a passionate, political comedian, bold enough to tackle subjects that others do not dare to mention but with enough charm and humour to get away with it. In 2013 he took on the bankers with Take The Red Pill, in 2014, he took on religion with Jesus Versus Buddha and in 2015 he managed to bring humour to serious subjects such as warcrimes, genocide and mass surveillance in his show The Holy trinity of Whistleblowers. His critically acclaimed shows received 5-Star and 4-Star reviews from Edinburgh to Adelaide fringes and his latest show, The Money Shot, promises to be the best yet.
Not only has he performed shows all over the world, he has also performed at peace festivals in the Middle East and Northern Ireland, he performed as a highlight at Glastonbury Festival 2016 and now he resumes his world tour in South East Asia. He has made appearances on BBC, Russia Today, RTE, Channel 4, 98fm, 4fm, Spin fm, Bali Spirit Festival, Vodafone Comedy Festival. A grass-roots comedian and people-lover, he is Ireland's only comedian to have done a sitting-room tour of Ireland or to leave the stage at Electric Picnic, Ireland's largest festival, to initiate a giant group hug.
