At the moment I’m working away on my new standup show. It will premiere in the Tiger Dublin Fringe in September and tickets are on sale now.
After this I’ll be doing a tour around Ireland in October with my show “Gearoid Less Travelled”. More info in that soon!
Also I am the host of the new Headstuff Lecture series which takes place the first Wednesday of the month in The Workmans Club in Dublin. I host the night and there are six speakers giving talks on things they care about which they hope you will too. Topics to date have included Paris Hilton, Cyborgs, The Visitor Centre in The Phonix Park and Democracy. My talks have so far been called “The Life Changing Tragedy of Tidying Up” and “Cagney and Lacey For President”. These have been selling out so make sure to book online when they are announced. Keep an eye on Headstuff.org
There is a new batch of “Fascinated” online. Recent guests have included Mo Gaffney from “Absolutely Fabulous” (the only Irish interview with a cast member of the movie), Paula Lambert (the first ever interview with the “Bosco” Puppeteer) and one where I track down the awesome singer/songwriter that got me through the dark days of the leaving cert; Naimee Coleman.
The most recent episode is “Where Are They Now?” with Jo Youle; CEO of the Missing People charity and former member of the pop band Scarlet.

I am just back from the UK to do some supports for the lovely Sarah Millican. I got to play some massive venues and hang around with her and her lovely dog. We had a ball.
I am on tour all around Ireland opening for Neil Delamere. We’ve been on the road since 27th December .. (I know.. barely time to finish my selection box) and we continue right up until the end of May the remaining dates are on the Gigs Page.
I recently recorded my first stand-up special….
It is called “Home Truths” and will be broadcast in early summer on RTE Radio 1 as part of the Comedy Showhouse Festival. My special guest was Kathleen O’Rourke, the creator, writer and voicer of the Oscar nominated “Granny O’Grimm”. I’ll post more news about it when I get the broadcast date.
Also; some lovely news. If you subscribe to my podcast “Fascinated” you will know I have recently moved my archives to Headstuff Podcast Network – There are new episodes and a lot of new listeners. In fact this latest episode; “Mama I Want To Sing”, ended up number 7 in the comedy charts on iTunes!!!
As if I don’t see enough of Neil Delamere Every Sunday I will be sitting opposite him to review the week on his radio show Neil Delamere’s Sunday Best on Today FM. I’m on from 11:40.. so tune in when you’re waiting for the toaster to pop.

At the moment I’m on tour around Ireland again opening for Neil Delamere. Also I’ll be heading off to the UK in February to do some more shows opening for Sarah Millican on her “Outsider” tour.
On the 7th February I’ll be recording a stand-up special for RTE Radio 1 in the Project Arts Centre at 8pm. The show “Gearoid’s Home Truths” will be a little different to a normal stand-up show. It will also feature some sketches with West-end actress Roisin Sullivan and Kathleen O’Rourke (writer/creator/voicer of Oscar Nominated “Granny o’Grimm”) will play my mother who is listening at home!
If you would like to be in the audience you can book here
Aindreas De Staic is also recording that night and the recording will be hosted by Fred Cooke.
Any News Gearóid? Well.. funny you should mention it ….
Myself and Chris Kent will be doing a double-bill show as part of the Tiger Dublin Fringe from Tuesday 15th to Saturday 19th September and tickets are available for that here
Chris’s show is brilliant and we’re on before Foil Arms and Hog and I saw their show in Edinburgh and it is hilarious. So make a night of it….you’re worth it.
Thanks to everyone that came to see my show “Gearóid Less Travelled” at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. Especially Liz, Tim and Dan who managed my my show and watched it no less than 27 times (nutters) and dynamic duo John and Ben (right) who gave out flyers for it every day and even on the last day still looked enthusiastic.. sort of.
I came back and did the comedy tent at Electric Picnic so I’m more or less voice-less at the moment. No bad thing I’m sick of listening to myself talk. If anyone wants me I’ll be on the couch with a “Law and Order SVU” box set and a palette of pringles.
