Welcome to Tara Flynn’s website
Tara Flynn is an Irish actress, voiceover & writer. She’s Ireland’s leading female voice artiste, an improviser, radio contributor and occasional columnist. You may have seen her on TV in Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, The Omid Djalili Show, Thank God You’re Here or The Impressions Show, or more recently in The Mario Rosenstock Show or Irish Pictorial Weekly.

Is this the Tara Flynn you are looking for?
Then come on in…
“Deserves to be a far bigger star than she already is …”
– One4Review ★★★★
“… jarringly surreal and inventively silly. It’s the Boosh-like oddity that clinches it”
– Andrew Collins
“Delightful set of musical comedy … wonderfully twisted … had her audience in stitches … well worth seeing”
“Well written and funny … very entertaining”
– Australian Comedy Review

“… refreshingly testosterone-free comedy zone that still has balls …”
– The Stage
“You could listen to the lovely Ms Flynn all night”
“Impossible to dislike”
– Glasgow Herald
