Nuala McKeever

Summit Host

Nuala McKeever is a professional comedy writer and performer and an amateur student of the human condition.


After having her own show on television, she has written five plays, the most recent of which, In The Window, toured to Edinburgh, the USA and India.


Nuala is a regular occasional presenter on BBC Radio Ulster.


After the death of her partner in 2013, she became interested in the practice of Zen Buddhism, taking lay vows in 2017.


During lockdown she managed to finish her first novel (writing, not reading!) stay sane and put on weight. She lives in Belfast with her cat Lolli and an addiction to potato crisps that she has just wrestled into submission.


Nuala is currently writing a new stand up comedy show for the Open House in Bangor this August.
