Tadhg Hickey is a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, musician, morale-booster and docu-poet. Most of that list is real. In 2014 he was commissioned by RTE to write and star in a hit web series about a chap going out with himself – (R)onanism: “Pure clever man. Irish TV could do with a bit of that” – The Rubberbandits. (R)onanism paved the way for Tadhg’s critically acclaimed TV pilot, Sketch! and recent work for Republic of Telly.
He is an award winning comedy writer and performer. He co-wrote and performed the play Love all (“an outstanding physical and comedic performer” The Scotsman), and has written and starred in numerous prize winning short films including Uisce Beatha (Filmmakers’ Prize, DC Shorts festival, Washington) and Nietzsche No.5 (Best Comedy, Fastnet Short Film Festival).
He also fronts Irish band exit: pursued by a bear whose second album has recently come out to widespread critical acclaim. Tadhg’s lovely, OK?
Claire is the ‘on the wall’ part of the CCCahoots operation. Claire’s background is in accounting, but she found that it simply wasn’t exciting enough for her so she went and followed her dream to work in TV/film production and theatre! In the space of two years, Claire has already found herself producing work for the national broadcaster – RTE – including a critically acclaimed TV pilot ‘Sketch!’ and content for RTE’s flagship comedy, ‘Republic of Telly.’
