One of the most exciting things about putting on stand-up comedy in Paris is when a top flight comic is set to drift through the city and can't resist the opportunity to perform here. Such is the case with Dom Irrera, a major star back in the USA, he is a man of many faces and voices, each funnier than the last. With a quick change of expression and dialect he moves from character to character in a non-stop commentary on the human comedy. He can mime humour from any situation and his characterisations are always dead-on.

A cable TV comedy favourite, Irrera continues to gain credits. He's currently co-hosting cable TV's football follies show, "Offsides". In 1995, he won his second CableAce Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Series or Special for "Full Frontal Comedy", a stand-up series he hosted. The same year Irrera received another CableAce nomination in the writing category for his work on the animated series "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist". In 1989, his special, "One Night Stand", earned him his first CableAce Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special.
