Mario Rosenstock Gift Grub Live 3

starring Mario Rosenstock

The latest Gift Grub Live Tour is following its wildly succesful predecessors footsteps - the 2010 & 2012 Gift Grub Tours sold out with sales of over 100,000 tickets!

Mario Rosenstock Gift Grub Live 3 features a host of brand new characters developed on 'The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show' on Today FM and over two series of the critically acclaimed ratings smash 'The Mario Rosenstock Show' on RTÉ Two.

Expect to see Francis Brennan, Marty Morrissey, Davy Fitz, Donal Skehan and Miriam 'Genuinely' O'Callaghan 'live on stage' as you've never seen them before!

There's the return of Keith 'Howya Buddies' Duffy, Joan Burton, José Mourinho, Michael Noonan, and of course Mario's inimitable take on Vincent Browne.

But probably most of all Mario is delighted to bring back probably his most celebrated character - Roy Keane - "Roy's back, José's back - it's a perfect storm" he says of Mario Rosenstock Gift Grub Live 3.

"I can't wait for people to see the new show - and there's going to be even more audience interaction this time so, watch out, If you're in the audience, you might be in the show too!"

Conal Gallen: A Bit on the Side

Due to popular demand, Conal returns to glór with his side-splitting 2 Act comedy farce! Written by Conal and his son Rory, the action takes place in the household of Bridie and Willie Murphy, a couple who have fought the war of marriage for over 30 years. It is a love story unlike any other - wandering eyes, wandering feet, wandering hands.....It's all here!  Scenes of nudity have been carefully left out in this saga of sex, drugs and deception (there weren't any in the first place, says Conal)!  Join Bridie, Willie, Dick and Cynthia... yes, Cynthia!!!!!....as this tale of passion and intrigue unfolds!

A play that was 16 years and 6 weeks in production - 16 years thinking about it and 6 weeks writing!

Nolan & Lambe @ glór will be open on the evening and you can opt for a 2 course supper before the event for just €15.  This may be booked with box office directly on online here.

Neil Delamere

The Fresh Prince of Delamere

Described by The Scotsman as “a master”, Delamere is renowned for his on-stage banter and quick-witted, well-observed yarns and previous tours and international appearances – including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival – have been a sell-out.  Expect The Fresh Prince of Delamere to deliver the same powerhouse performance from the star of RTÉ’s The Panel, 2nd Republic, BBC’s The Blame Game, Fighting Talk and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow.

A star of TV as well as stage, Neil can be seen on TV screens in the tenth season of the ever-popular panel show The Blame Game on BBC and in the forthcoming four-part comedy documentary series Holding Out for A Hero, which airs in December on RTÉ2. Holding Out for A Hero, which is written and presented by Neil offers a wry and humourous look at the lives of four Irish heroes from history: Grace O’Malley/Granuaile, Red Hugh O’Donnell, Cú Chulainn and Fionn Mac Cumhaill.  It follows in the footsteps of the IFTA and Celtic Media Award-winning TV programmes on the Vikings and St. Patrick, also written and presented by Delamere.

Early booking advised.

Nolan & Lambe @ glór will be open on the evening and you can opt for a 2 course supper before the event for just €15.  This may be booked with box office directly on online here.

PJ Gallagher

with his new show 'Concussion'

Star of Next Week’s News, Meet your Neighbours and Naked Camera, PJ Gallagher makes his highly anticipated return with a brand new show ‘Concussion’.

Recently PJ could be heard guest presenting Radio Nova’s Morning Glory show before heading off on the trip of a lifetime with the Route 66 Motorbike Challenge in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital.  PJ has played sold out shows throughout Ireland and at the biggest and best comedy festivals that the country has to offer including Kilkenny Cat Laughs and The Vodafone Comedy Carnival.  Gallagher’s encounters with the unsuspecting public are not only hilarious but also crackle with and edgy energy

"Clearly getting better all the time"  Irish Independent

"For a man who ambushes people as they go about their everyday business, makes them uncomfortable and mines their embarrassment for laughs, there is something strangely appropriate about PJ Gallagher’s route into comedy." The Sunday Times Culture Magazine

Nolan & Lambe @ glór will be open on the evening and you can opt for a 2 course supper before the event for just €15.  This may be booked with box office directly on online here.

Pat Shortt: Selfie

The irrepressible Pat Shortt is back on a nationwide tour with stories and gimmicks that only Pat Shortt could come up with.  His new show, Selfie, tells the tales of a singing undertaker Mossey Burke along with a host of new characters as he recounts his favourite funeral. A funeral that was nearly the death of him and changed his life forever!

While his unique, comedic but somewhat universal look at everyday Irish life has cemented his place in the public hearts, along with that his work on stage and screen over the last decade have proved him to be an enduring, versatile and award winning talent. His most recent theatre role of Johnnypateenmike in the West End production of ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’ alongside Sarah Greene and Daniel Radcliffe was a renowned success that subsequently transferred to Broadway in New York.

Pat’s new show is an entertaining throwback similar to that to the days of D’Unbelievables! In a quirky and humorous way Pat brings us on a journey with his new character Mossey Burke and the chaos that can happen around an Irish funeral that any and all can relate to.  Through laughs and punch-lines and hilarious one-liners Pat performs a myriad of truly Irish comedic scenarios that no matter what part of the country you are from you will have seen or heard of first hand!
