About

Kieran is a very talented writer-performer who has projects in development with Kudos, What Larks and Little Rock. He will return to Edinburgh in August with his new show LANCE.

He recently reprised the role of Jonathan Harker in Nick Mohammed's MR SWALLOW THE MUSICAL at the Soho Theatre after a sell-out run in Edinburgh last year.

"Enthusiastic support comes from David Elms, Joanna Grace and particularly Kieran Hodgson as Jonathan Harker, who would make a serviceable David Tennant if the ex-Time Lord required a body double." Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

He also recently filmed the role of Ibsen in Grahahm Linehan's Channel 4 pilot THE CLOUD alongside Adam Buxton, Jamie Demetriou and Aisling Bea. He filmed a guest role in SIBLINGS Series 2 for BBC3 and will be performing in a number of series for BBC Radio 4, CLARE IN THE COMMUNITY, THE LENTIL THROWERS (comedy) and CYRANO DE BERGRAC (drama).

His brilliant show FRENCH EXCHANGE had a great month at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival at the Voodoo Rooms on the Free Fringe and was followed by two successful runs at the Pleasance Theatre in London.

He was picked as one of the Best Shows on the Free Fringe by the Times and received 4 star reviews:

"Hodgson's embodiment of the multiple characters is elegant and impressive. This is an excellent performance, capturing the ways in which different people carry their bodies." Fest Mag

Kieran appeared in Armistead Maupin's BABYCAKES and as Louis Scratcherd in THE BARCHESTER CHRONICLES: DR THORNE alongside Maggie Steed and Douglas Booth for BBC Radio 4 and had a role in the second series of COUNT ARTHUR STRONG for BBC2.

He also starred in 2525, a six-part sketch show examining every walk of life 500 years into the future, for BBC Radio 4. The show was co-created with Matt Lucas and also featured Catriona Knox and Jamie Demetriou.

He wrote on the third series of THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL for The Cartoon Network and was also involved in the Writer's Room for the second series of THE MIDNIGHT BEAST for Warp Television and E4.

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..

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 ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA. He also filmed a role in Graham Linehan's 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.
