And we’re done! After 13 weeks we’ve travelled 15,000 miles and played to 20.000 people. The tour with Neil Delamere is done!! Well more or less there are one or two dates that have been tacked on (Ballybofey, Dun Laoghaire). IF you caught a show I hope you enjoyed it. I had a ball!
Also the podcast has been getting a LOT of downloads. It’s now available on SoundCloud, Stitcher and PodOmatic as well as iTunes. There was a slight delay in getting Episode 5 out but it’ll be available by the end of the week it’s called “That Night We Won” and it’s about winning and winners. It features Neil Delamere and an interview with my good pal Niamh Kavanagh on winning the Eurovision and lots of other stuff that she hasn’t talked about in interviews before… There’s one more episode after that called “Politics of the Heart” and then I’ll be taking a little break to make more. Some very cool guests are already on board for the next set.
I’ll be doing festival dates and solo dates during the summer which i’ll be posting here next week. The excitement of it all ……
My new podcast “Fascinated” will be available later this week. The first episode is entitled “The Day Job”. It includes interviews with people that I find fascinating. I’ve been making it since May 2013 and i’m very happy to be finally putting it online *Happy Dance*.
When you subscribe there is a 40 second clip of the episode one featuring an interview with Mariama Goodman from The Honeyz about reuniting with the band while still working in her day-job as a midwife.
Plenty of news coming soon! .. ok here’s bit of it….
I’ll be on tour with Neil Delamere again in 2014. I have most of the dates already and some tickets are already on sale. We’ll be everywhere all over again. I’ll post them all here just as soon as I get the go ahead . The tour starts in December and is a new show.
I’ll also be doing some solo dates weaved expertly around Neil’s shows with ones in Carlow and Dublin this side of Christmas. Also I have a secret project that I’ve been working on since May which is almost ready to go *happy dance* … more about that soon.

This weekend it’s the Vodafone comedy festival in the lovely surroundings of the iveagh gardens. I’m on with Luisa Omielan on Saturday at 4:30 in The Comedy Hub and on Sunday with Kevin McAleer and Tommy Tiernan (excuse me) in the Big Red at 9:30. If you’re going try and see Paul foot and Terry Alderton who are bloody amazing! http://www.vodafonecomedy.com/
Well thats the last of the selection boxes. I had a choice this evening of either taking down my Christmas Tree or updating my website. They were the two jobs on the list. So I chose this one. The Christmas tree can wait…. ’til Easter.
Last year was an amazing year. I loved every second of doing the slot on 98fm and was sad when The Morning Crew finished (I took to the bed for a fortnight).
Also I had the most amazing time opening for Joan Rivers for three shows on her most recent tour. She’s an amazing comedian and very lovely lady. It was a treat from start to finish. I even wore a tie on stage…A TIE! (dressing for Joan Rivers is terrifying!).
I’ve become accustomed to the Joan Rivers touring lifestyle and I’m bringing all of this expertise to Neil Delamere’s tour. At the moment he is ignoring ALL of my suggestions (Floor length silver coat, team of personal assistants and 5 star hotels). Never the less his show is still absolutely brilliant and has an added treat (you’ll know it when you see it!).
The tour runs right up until April and then straight afterwards i’ll be doing solo dates which I will post up here in February….if the Christmas tree is down..All of the dates I’m doing are on the Live Gigs page but for a complete listing see his site www.neildelamere.com
If you’re missing Meet Your Neighbours, you might like to have a look at this. I’m going to put more of it online. Hopefully we’ll do another one!
Thanks for dropping by my site.
You're probably here because you either saw me do a gig, are related to me or know me from years ago and heard I've been on the telly. I hope it's the first one and you enjoyed it..... Also I hope I didn't have notes written on my hand, wear a wrinkly shirt or swear. These things sometimes happen. If they did I do apologise!
Hope you find what you're looking for on the site and if you don't email me firstname.lastname@example.org
