Tommy Tiernan: Paddy Crazy Horse


Back on the road again Tommy Tiernan has a new show. He rants and raves, he dances and acts. He tries to be very silly and very serious at the same time. He mixes a love of comic rebellion and a refusal to be conscripted into a rational view of the world with a deep grá for talking and the poetry of everyday speech. Using high theatricality and lots of dirty words, this is a fast paced and exuberant celebration of everything that’s wild, wrong and wonderful about being alive right here, right now. It is by turns clever and then really stupid. BE THERE !

Tommy writes a weekly newspaper column for the Sunday Independent, appears as Da Gerry in Derry Girls on C4, hosts his own improvised chat show on RTÉ and has performed all over Ireland and the world as a stand up comedian for the past 23 years.

Hey! delivers a peculiar take on modern life that only the unique imagination of Pat Shortt could conjure up.

Foil Arms & Hog: Craicling

Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control, this event has been rescheduled from the advertised date of Saturday 8 September.

Former children and regular eaters, Foil Arms & Hog are back with the Irish premiere of their new show Craicling. The show has yet to be reviewed but when it is, it will be “utterly spellbinding” and “a triumph.”

Best known for their YouTube videos, (50 million online hits), their live show is what they’re most proud of. They’ve sold-out every year in glór since 2017, a run that must surely end, but hopefully not this year.

Quite simply, a sensation.” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

Neil Delamere: Controlled Substance

Fresh from a sell-out tour, the star of BBC's The Blame Game and Soft Border Patrol, Neil Delamere, returns to glór with a brand new show. This time he thinks he has that whole "illusion of control" idea sussed.

Then again he would think that, wouldn't he?

Chris Kent - Looking Up

Cork comedian Chris Kent returns with his 6th solo show Looking Up.

Chris has spent the past year balancing comedy with being a stay-at-home dad and trying to grow a beard. He has also removed the word “mate” from his vocabulary as it takes too much effort to say in an Irish accent. 

T.V. appearances include the RTÉ 2 panel show Next Year’s News, The Craig Doyle Show and Conor's Dad in the hit series The Young Offenders. In the UK, he has appeared on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central for Comedy Central.  On radio he has been a regular panelist for the RTE Radio 1 show The Second Republic and a guest panelist on BBC’s The Blame Game.  In 2010 he was the recipient of the Comedy Smack Down Award at the Galway Comedy festival, and winner of the Bulmer’s Nuttin’ But Funny Comedy Award 2009. Following on from being listed as “One to Watch” in The Dublin magazine’s “Red Hot and Rising” for 2012, Chris Kent was voted as one of the Top Five Irish Comedians by Hot Press Magazine in 2013.
