One of the most distinctive voices in television, Barra Fitzgibbon is the Irish guy who says “filum” on Channel 4. Bringing personality to continuity, Barra has revolutionised the art of the TV announcer, embedding his voice in the consciousness of the Channel 4 brand.
Major names like Guinness, OK magazine, Paco Rabanne, 20th Century Fox and Kerry Gold Butter have come knocking for Barra’s services as a voice artist and Sony Pictures have used his voice and rapport with the Channel 4 audience for a unique film commercial. Little did the boy from Dublin know that one day he would be tangling with Tom Hardy and Venom in the name of TV trans-platform promotion.
Barra is an accomplished event host, from the Richard and Judy Book Awards to, most recently, the carnivorous fiesta that is Meatopia at The Open Gate Guinness Brewery in Dublin.
Always looking to push the boundaries, Barra was featured on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Many are still trying to erase from their memory, that scene featuring spray tan and a thong, so if you want a man to help produce unforgettable television, look no further.
