Karl Spain is an Irish comedian from Limerick.
In 2000, Spain won the RTÉ award for Best New Act.
Spain appeared at the Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival in 2003. He has also featured on The Panel and is a regular at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs comedy festival.
Spain later ran a series on RTÉ entitled Karl Spain Wants a Woman. He appeared as master of kung-fu on the fifth series of Killinaskully in October 2008.
In 2009 he had yet another TV show on RTÉ Two, Karl Spain wants to Rock.
In March 2010 Karl began a tour as supporting act to fellow Irish comedian, Ed Byrne. His style is self-deprecating, and his humour appeals to a broad age range. His material includes some audience feedback items with impromptu gags in response to his “victim”, and also focuses on male “laddish” culture such as stag-night exploits. It is fresh and inventive, and will not shock or offend most mainstream comedy audiences.
