ABOUT

Part rock band, part international comedy sensation, part four guys who have spent an uncomfortable amount of time together, Dead Cat Bounce began touring the world relentlessly, on a very tight budget in 2008.

Since then we have performed our rocking stage show to packed houses and critical acclaim at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Sydney Comedy Festival, the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, the Kilkenny Cat Laughs, the Dublin Fringe and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe; where we were the house band at the legendary Late’n’Live show.

We made our TV debut in January of 2009, with our pilot airing as part of RTÉ’s Project Ha Ha. We appeared regularly on TV shows and Galas on RTÉ, Channel 4, BBC and on channels in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The video for our song “Rugby” went on to become one of the most watched internet videos in Ireland for 2011, clocking over a million views on YouTube.

Although we hung up our leopard print pants in 2013, we continue to spend an uncomfortable amount of time together writing comedy, with several film projects in various stages of development.

Our first feature film, “Discoverdale” was released on DVD and Blu Ray in Japan in May of 2016, and on VOD and Satellite in North America in April 2017. Our second feature film, “Send in the Clowns” is in development with the Irish Film Board.
