Hope you all got lovely valentine’s day cards and snogs. I’m busy on the road at the moment with Neil Delamere. We’re 8 weeks into a 16 week tour so we’re starting to go a bit grey and forget where we are supposed to be going. Also I know all of the sandwiches they sell in Applegreens. Never the less it’s been great fun so far. I’m doing most of the dates on the tour. I’ve added the dates in my diary to the events page. Also there’ll be some more gig news soon
Also I did an episode of Dermot Whelan’s new music panel show “Hey Ho, Let’s Go”
for RTE2. It’s still on the RTE player if you want to take a look. It was great fun to re cord… well for except when I nipped out to the loo on a break in the recording and wandered back to the wrong studio. It was empty and all set out for mass!
Anyway hopefully we’ll see some of you on the road. Also I’m definitely doing a new podcast series.. it’s taking ages and I’m sorry but I want to make it as good as the last one.
I’m hoping to start releasing them in April. If you sign up to my mailing list I will give you ALL the gossip on the lineup.
If you’re drawing a blank on Christmas presents I can recommend Sarah Millican’s new standup DVD “Homebird” and there is an interview with me in “Behind The Scenes On Tour”, one of the dvd-extras.
I supported Sarah for some dates earlier this year and that bit was filmed backstage just before the third show at the Brighton Dome. It’s the brilliant show she did in the Olympia in Dublin for two nights earlier this year. So if you saw that you’ll know it’s worth seeing again.
Things are about to get very busy. I’m about to go out on tour with Neil Delamere again. We’ve been doing little shows around the place to get the show ready ad they have been great fun. But I can’t wait for those big venues. The tour kicks off properly on 20th December in Athlone.
I’ve also just recorded a top-secret project but more about that soon….shhhhh! I am (of course!) working on the second series of “Fascinated”. The guests recorded so far have been amazing including a Grammy nominee, a Tony winner and tales from the set of “Bridesmaids”. But I’m not going to give anything away. I’m hoping there will be more episodes this time .. but it depends on how busy I get.
Tonight I’m in Clonmel for the Bulmers Comedy Festival. All the tour dates will be on this site soon. In the meantime… happy Christmas shopping!!
Well hello there you look fantastic,
Another overdue update to my poor neglected website. There’s been a lot happening over the past couple of months.
First off I was really sad to hear about the death of Joan Rivers. She was a class act and trailblazing comedian. I have lovely memories of working with her and I’m sure where-ever she is there is a stage a mic and she is rocking the place. RIP lovely lady.
I had a lovely time doing shows with the cast of “Singlehood” in Dublin and at the Galway Comedy Festival. If you haven’t seen it catch them on the rest of their tour around the country, it’s brilliant.
I’m in the middle of making another six episodes of “Fascinated” i’m hoping for the guests to be as good as last time and the ones I’ve recorded so far definitely are. The most recent recording even featured a sing-along! In the meantime I made a two-part episode on Comedy Podcasting for Culture File/RTE Lyric. It featured Stuart Goldsmith from “The Comedian’s Comedian”, Justin Moorehouse and Jessica Chaffin from “Ronna & Beverly”. I’ll be making more of these soon.
Starting on 20th December I’ll be back on tour with Neil Delamere. We’ll be all over the country until the end of March. I’ll be posting the dates here soon. If you happen to live in Dubai I’ll be playing in McGettigans /sitting by the pool during the comedy festival there in January. Honestly I work like a dog.
If you’re about Dublin on 22nd November I’ll be part of the Charity Gala in aid of Poppy’s Wheels. Apart from being a great event to raise money for a very special young lady, this show is headlined by Deirdre O’Kane in an all-too-rare stand-up appearance following the release of her movie “Noble” … which is fantastic by the way. You can get tickets here.
So thats my news!! If you want more get on my mailing list.
Remember in the run up to Christmas these important words…. everyone loves a gift voucher….x
It’s that time of year again when comedians are getting new shows ready. So far I’ve seen three Edinburgh Previews that are absolutely brilliant. I’ve seen Chris Kent, Eleanor Tiernan and The Nualas and the each have brilliant new shows. So if you’re about Edinburgh you should definitely head along and see them.
I’m not going to Edinburgh this year (maybe next year) but I am doing previews of a new show every night next week in the International Bar in Dublin. Then I’ll be in Galway for the Galway International Arts Festival on the 21st July. So if you’re about Dublin this week pop into the international at 7 for a giggle and have a pint for your dinner.
You can RSVP on Facebook ….. just so I know how many places to set
I had a great time at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival. There were some amazing shows for the 20th Anniversary. I was on one show with Mary Lynn Rajskub from “24″. She was really lovely and the show was great fun. I haven’t watched any of this series yet but she was very nice and didn’t give away any spoilers.
The first “series” of podcasts has come to an end and I’m in the middle of making the second series. I’ve recorded some great guests and hopefully the first one will be with you really soon. There’s a lot in them so they take a while to make hence the gap.
I’ll be doing some festivals over the summer but first i’ll be doing a week of previews of new material in the International comedy club for a week in July. The shows will be at 7pm each night. So you come along and watch me get these new jokes in order.
After that I’ll be doing a show in the Ruby Rooms for the Galway Arts Festival and a then the Vodafone Comedy Festival in the Iveagh Gardens that same week.
Also there are two cool things coming up but I’m not allowed to say either. But sign up to my mailing list and I promise i’ll tell you first
