comedian / actor / podcaster
Edwin Sammon's unpredictable and immensely likeable style saw audiences award him the Tedfest Golden Toilet Duck in 2011 for best comedian. The Offaly native went on to support Jason Byrne, Fred Cooke and Ardal O'Hanlon on their nationwide tours and performed at every major festival and club in the country. In 2013 Edwin was part of the sold out, nationwide Lads Of Comedy tour. He debuted his first solo special - Edwin Sammon vs Cancer - last year which chronicled his battle with the disease in a heartfelt and honestly funny manner. On TV screens he took over the news desk co-presenting and writing on Republic Of Telly and currently can be seen as Fr. Gabriel in the IFTA award-winning Bridget and Eamon which is now in its third series.
