Barry Castagnola

Barry has created and performed a variety of comedy characters for new television shows – ‘Eye Spy’, ‘The Secret Interview’, ‘Public Eye’ and Dom Joly’s new primetime ITV show ‘Fool Britannia’.

He has performed stand up on ‘The Comedy Store Live’, ‘The Stand Up Show’, was a regular on ‘Christian O’Connell’s Sunday Service’ and film quiz ‘Popcorn’ and also appeared in ‘Comedy Shuffle’ and ‘Comedy Cuts’.

His lucid urban storytelling succeeds mainly because of his amiable everyman persona: slightly middle class, slightly streetwise, but hard to conclusively define. It’s the eloquence of his tales, with their sharp, effective comic imagery, that nails the deal.  He’s an assured raconteur with an easy-going, natural and upbeat style.
