It’s supposed to be a day of special celebration as Mattie and Maggie Conway celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. However, few people know that they haven’t spoken a word to each other in ten years and when the local priest decides to surprise them by calling to their house to renew their marriage vows all hell breaks loose! It’s rip-roaring comedy as Tommy Marren brings to life the follow-up play to the hilarious It’s The Real McCoy. Set in rural Ireland in 1969 you should prepare yourself for another night of continuous laughter.

Winging It will see John back on stage for his fifth UK & Ireland tour, performing in his own inimitable style. His last tour ‘Supersonic’ was watched by more than 500,000 people and received huge critical acclaim. ‘Rollercoaster’ in 2012 was another sell out, and followed the successes of his ‘Sunshine’ tour in 2011 and the ‘Elvis Has Left The Building’ show in 2010, for which he was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award.
John Bishop has had an incredible career. Within three years of his first ever comedy gig, John was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.
He has achieved huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows including ‘John Bishop’s Australia’ (BBC1), ‘John Bishop’s Britain’ (BBC1), ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’ (Sky1), ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1), ‘The John Bishop Christmas Show’ (BBC1) and ‘John Bishop’s Gorilla Adventure’ (ITV1).
Recently John turned his hand to something completely different – interviewing. A new series called ‘John Bishop: In Conversation With…’ sees him chatting, one on one, with some of the UK’s biggest names from the world of entertainment, sport and music to discover the people behind the public persona, in 10 intimate and revealing one hour interviews on the W Channel.
John has recently made a return to acting – he is currently filming a new ITV drama, Fearless. Written by Homeland writer Patrick Harbinson and produced by Mammoth Screen (credits include Poldark and Victoria), the six part series will TX next year.
‘King of the one-hundred-liner’
‘Home is not only where Bishop’s heart clearly and endearingly is – it’s where his art is, too’
‘His Supersonic show easily confirms that John Bishop has finally taken on the mantle of Britain’s top comic’
Today FM duo takes to the roads of Ireland with the return of their hilarious new comedy show.
Entitled the ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ tour, Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore debuted their comedy show at the first Cork Comedy Festival in September last year and the following month at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival in Galway. Both shows sold out in record time.
The pair has taken to the stage for a comedy gig but they’re well used to each other, having worked together in radio for over 12 years. Having just finished a 14 date sell out tour across Ireland the pair are ready for more with a further 15 shows in the Autumn.
Asked what people can expect from their stand up show, Dermot Whelan said: : “Imagine a bonkers radio show that grows legs and arms and a head and starts firing out craic and waving its arms like an angry King Kong in that movie. Not even close.”
Dave Moore commented: “It’s all our listeners’ favourite characters, stand-up, improvised comedy, music and an interactive gardening segment – what’s not to love?!”
Listeners to The Dermot & Dave Show on Today FM will be familiar with their weekly ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ feature where friend of the show ‘Mac from Carlow’ gives random clues and people are asked to guess what it is Mac is talking about. Although the comedy show has nothing to do with the feature, the lads just like the name!
Early booking strongly advised!

‘The Man With Three Brains’ is a brand new show from the highly acclaimed and extremely funny, Jason Byrne.
Jason has three brains which kick into action when he hits the stage. His left brain scans the audience and room, looking for improv moments. His right brain collates stand-up material and stunts, poised to dish out the funnies at speed. His centre brain is Jason’s coach, pushing him to the limit. This show will peel back the madness inside Jason Byrne’s head to reveal all three brains working individually. The fastest thinking comic around will not only trip himself up, but probably you too.
It’s been a busy few years for Byrne. In addition to his extensive touring worldwide, his Radio 2 show was awarded the UK radio industry’s prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award. As well as fronting a brand new studio based comedy chat show Jason Byrne's Snaptastic Show for TV3, he is co-host of Sky’s hugely popular new entertainment programme Wild Things on Sky1. Also seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC1), The Royal Variety Show (ITV1), The John Bishop Show (BBC1), and Father Figure (BBC1) of which he is creator and star.
