About

Kieran is a very talented writer-performer  who is currently preparing to take his show FRENCH EXCHANGE to this year's Edinburgh Festival where he will perform at the Voodoo Rooms. Kieran will also be playing a lead role in Nick Mohammed's MR SWALLOW THE MUSICAL at the Pleasance Dome.

He is currently writing a pilot for Radio 4 with Tom Meltzer and is developing a script with Kudos. He also recently recorded roles for Radio 4 in Armistead Maupin's BABYCAKES and as Louis Scratcherd in THE BARCHESTER CHRONICLES: DR THORNE alongside Maggie Steed and Douglas Booth and a role in the second series of COUNT ARTHUR STRONG for BBC2.

Earlier this year, he starred in 2525, a six-part sketch show examining every walk of life 500 years into the future, which airs on BBC Radio 4 throughout February. The show is co-created with Matt Lucas and also features Catriona Knox and Jamie Demetriou.

Kieran also played the guest lead role of Ridley in one of the upcoming JONATHAN CREEK specials for BBC One, THE LETTERS OF SEPTIMUS NOONE. which aired this Spring.

He performed his brilliant character comedy solo show, FLOOD, in the Underbelly's Daisy at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 (with Live Nation & Berk's Nest).

He can be seen as the role of Young Exec in the eagerly awaited feature film ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA which is currently on DVD release. He also recently filmed a role in Graham Linehan's new 6 part BBC2 series COUNT ARTHUR STRONG.

Kieran also played the lead role in Joe Parham and Ben Target's short film FRANK which recently featured on Huffington Post

Kieran appeared on Radio Four's FRESH FROM THE FRINGE in 2012 alongside Nish Kumar and Celia Pacquola. He played the role of King Maximilian of Liechtenstein in Episode 3 of CABIN PRESSURE SERIES 4 which aired on BBC Radio 4.

He also played the role of DAVEY in the BBC1 pilot GEORGE AND BERNARD SHAW alongside Richard Griffiths and Robert Lindsay and the role of Carl in Series 5 of Radio 4's GILES WEMMBLEY HOGG GOES OFF.

KIERAN AND JOE made their Edinburgh Fringe debut in 2010 as KIERAN & THE JOES with the show SUCCESS: A SUCCESS STORY at the Free Fringe and made a triuphant return in 2011 performing TEAMPOWERED to sell out audiences at Just the Tonic at The Store to fiive star reviews.

TEAMPOWERED rating: * * * * * ... in which these three drearily-attired salarymen welcome you to their “masterclass in teamwork” before spiralling into internecine dysfunction. Their Teampowered is a relentlessly hilarious show, craftsmanlike in concept, writing and delivery, and laying mercilessly into the notion of corporate improvement while also using that as an unlikely framework for all manner of off-the-beam inventiveness. One brilliantly dark slice of audience participation — fusing stand-up conventions, Jason Bourne and the Milgram experiment — will have you on the edge of your seat.

Mark Monahan, The Telegraph

August 2012 saw Kieran performing with Joe in KIERAN & JOE: FRIENDS OF STEEL at the Pleasance Baby Grand in Edinburgh and he also had his own solo show on the Free Fringe, KIERAN HODGSON: SUPERVILLAIN at the Voodoo Rooms.
