The last 12 months have been a whirlwind with Deirdre voicing the hugely successful Gogglebox for TV3, producing Ireland's largest ever charity comedy show for Comic Relief at the 3Arena, hosting the revamped IFTA Film & Drama Awards for national broadcaster RTÉ, and reaching the finals on the dancefloor of RTE smash hit, Dancing with the Stars. She also starred alongside Debi Mazar and Hillary Duff in Darren Starr's hit sitcom Younger (TV Land, US) which aired in the autumn.
Next up, Deirdre will host her own live comedy-based TV show in a brand new series for Sky for broadcast in Ireland and the UK in 2020! Alongside this project she’ll also tour a new stand up show nationwide. For dates be sure to follow the tour dates here.
