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.
Next week I’ll be part of the amazing lineup of the Vodafone Comedy Festival. This is one of the highlights of the comedy calendar. Every year the lineup is phenomenal and this year is no different. John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Nina Conti, Luisa Omielan, Nick Helm, Jon Richardson.. they’re all bloody brilliant. I can’t wait to go through their phones while they are on stage.
I’ll be in the Big Red on Saturday with Tommy Tiernan (CLANG) and Nick Kroll (CLATTER) … No pressure at all.. I’ll just be back from my holidays so I’ll be tanned and grumpy. Then on Sunday I’ll be in the Cherry Top with Jason Byrne, Nina Conti, Zoe Lyons and Fred Cooke (that guy I bully online). Tickets are flying out the door so it’s probably best to book before you go.
No I can’t get you in for free… but top tip; the burgers are always amazing.
Also there is a new episode of fascinated available on Soundcloud and iTunes. My guest is Hit Factory producer Mike Stock from Stock, Aiken and Waterman. He is one of the worlds most successful songwriters… so there! Subscribe on iTunes and you will get these episodes first… and its all FREE!
I will be taking a new show “Gearóid Less Travelled” to the Edinburgh Fringe in August. In the meantime I will be doing very cheap previews of it all around the place so keep an eye on the gigs page. I’ll be doing a lunchtime show in the Galway Arts Festival next Wednesday (July 15th) in the Ruby Room of The King’s Head pub on Shop Street. Come along… we’ll have a lovely time. The room can get warm so bring a nice fancy fan with you if you want to stay cool… a magazine or a few leaflets also works but it’s nowhere near as classy…..
If you are heading to “Body & Soul” today be sure and stop by the comedy tent this evening. I’ll be on at 7pm. I should say I might be on at 7pm; that is if the tent is still standing after Niamh Marron’s set at 6:30pm. I’ll also be at lots of other summer festivals around the country too including Galway Arts Festival, Vodafone Comedy Festival in the Iveagh Gardens and Indie-pendence in Cork and then the Edinburgh Fringe festival for the month of August.
When you set off why not have a listen to the story of Stephen Bradley’s Movie “Noble”. If you are interested in film this interview will make you giddy. He talks about everything from writing the script to flying home cans of film. Enjoy!!
Well at long last the second series of my podcast “Fascinated” has begun. What’s that you say?
“Podcasts don’t have series Gearóid, they just have periods where the podcaster couldn’t be arsed making new episodes”
Shhhh… shhhhhhhhh…. you silly bastard *presses finger to your lips*. I’m very busy with my first love standing up and only want to make really good podcasts so it takes ages. Partly because I want to finish all of Netflix. Anyhoooo …
This new series is already on episode 2. “How did this happen Gearóid?? you’re only updating your website now 3 weeks later!!” I have a life. Deal.
The first episode was with acting legend and national treasure (even though she is only 38) Pauline McLynn from “Father Ted”. We chat about lots of things including her infatuation with Conchita, working with Jennifer Saunders and of course the 20th Anniversary of “Father Ted”.
The second episode was with Carnie Wilson from Wilson Phillips… or as we’re now called Wilson Farrelly. We chat about her career, filming “Bridesmaids” and the 25th Anniversary of their biggest hit “Hold On”. To celebrate this Wilson Farrelly give it a homicidal bash.
There’ll be a new episode next week.. who will it be? Mike Stock from Stock, Aiken & Waterman? Tony winner Frances Ruffelle? or Film director Stephen Bradley?? Mind your own damn business… Subscribe to find out. Would it kill you?
