Nobody is Talking to Me

presented by The Crokey Hill Club

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.

Thursday 8 February, 8pm, €20/€18 conc.

Jason Byrne – The Man With Three Brains

‘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.

Danny O’Brien: RaconTour

Fresh from a sell-out month long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a tour of South East Asia, award-winning comedian Danny O'Brien returns with his most adventurous and unique solo show to date!

Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara O Briain - Danny was handpicked last year to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show in Australia, touring Perth World Fringe, Adelaide Fringe Festival and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
