Abie is a comedian & broadcaster, based in Dublin. He originally wanted to be a successful Irish novelist but, tragically, he had a happy childhood. He has toured from LA to Belfast and from Pakistan to Birr, with comedy shows including "Jesus: The Guantanamo Years", "Eco-Friendly Jihad" and "Pope Benedict: Bond Villain". He occasionally teaches workshops on stand-up, social media and "Comedy as A Weapon of Protest" (the subject of his Masters). He enjoys a good row, and has sparred on air with Gerry Adams, the DUP and (on Obama's election night) the Ku Klux Klan. More at www.AbieLaughs.com / @AbiePB / @DowntonWire
