Alison has appeared on television a few times, enough times for her mam to tell strangers that she works for RTE (she doesn’t), not enough times for her to get a free drink. She has appeared on Republic of Telly and RTE’s New Comedy Awards.
She was a team captain on a panel show for RTE 2 called Choose or Lose. A TV presenter for RTE’s coverage of Electric Picnic in 2015. A talking head on the year that’s in it. She has a new chat show called the Alison Spittle show with guests such as Tara Flynn, Aidan Power and Kevin McGahern.
She performed at the Vodafone Comedy Festival in the Iveagh Gardens and performed her show Alison Spittle Needs an Agent to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Dublin Fringe.
Her new show Alison Spittle discovers Hawaii had a full sell out run at First Fortnight and was nominated for two awards, Little gem award for best show under an hour and the first fortnight award for destigmatizing mental health.
She’s a regular columnist for headstuff.org and UCD university observer. Her article caused a kerfuffle, so much so she trended on Twitter in Ireland and appeared on Joe Duffy’s Liveline, guess which one impressed her mum?
“I delve into the family break-up in it quite a lot – from the perspective of me punching a jacket potato”

“You’d think during the boom someone would of built a vertical drop rollercoaster? No we have to make do with housing estates”
