Carl Donnelly (born 1982 in Tooting, London) is an English stand-up comedian and writer.

Stand up career

Donnelly began his comedy career in 2004. He has since been a regular on the London comedy circuit. Donnelly has made various radio appearances such as BBC Radio 4's 28 Acts in 28 Minutes, LBC's Comedy Cabaret and Tim Shaw's The Asylum on Kerrang! Radio.[1]

In 2006, Donnelly made his debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in a three-man show called 'The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly'. In 2007, he returned to Edinburgh via train to visit the Castle which he had not had the chance to view on his first visit. He decided to hang around and perform as part of the Comedy Zone at the Pleasance Courtyard seeing as he was up there. On his return to London he was quoted as saying "The castle was lovely and to perform some of my comedy was the icing on a very enjoyable teacake". In 2008 he returned once again to perform as a part of a two-hander with John Robins in their show - Carl Donnelly Vs John Robins Vs Predator. He prefers however to double up with Chris Martin for their (not-quite-so) regular podcast in which they discuss, amongst other things, topless swearing, Carl's nicknames like the anal albatross and their lack of swimming skills.

On 7 November 2010 Donnelly was one of the supporting acts on the fifth episode of Dave's One Night Stand.
