INN JOKES THIS WEDNESDAY 9.15PM WITH KEVIN MCGAHERN OFF THE TELLY PLUS GEAROID FARRELLY AND ALAN HURLEY PLUS GOOD NEWS ABOUT BOLLOXOLOGY AND A COMPETITION
I could apologise for the lateness of this newsletter but in the spirit of US Presidential election result, I am going to tough it out, deny that I ever sent newsletters earlier in the past and finally, blame foreigners.
That’s where the similarities end however. Our ‘transition team’ for Making Great Comedy Again at Inn Jokes on Wednesday night has been appointed and I am pleased to announce it doesn’t contain any anti-Semites, homophobes or people who don’t believe in the existence of dinosaurs (we’ve checked) and the only thing we have in common with the Trump Transition team is the gender balance. (I try but not hard enough so I’m sorry. I could appoint my daughter but she is 1.)
Another twin-headliner night with Kevin McGahern and Gearoid Farrelly with the night very ably opened up by the able Alan Hurley.
Kevin presents Republic of Telly, which by common consent, is getting better and better. Not least because I’m in it tonight (unless I’ve been cruelly dropped by the Establishment). Also Kevin just made the very good Kevin McGahern’s America on the telly. He’s fierce Telly altogether these days but as well as that, a damn fine stand-up comedian.
Joining Kevin is Gearoid Farrelly. As well as running finest comedy club outside the M50, in the Naul, and back from a great Edinburgh festival run, Gearoid tours with Sarah Millican and Neil Delamere, hosts the Headstuff lecture series and the Fascinated Podcast. Lookit tis all here at www.gearoidfarrelly.com
Finally we have Alan Hurley, finalist in the RTE new Comedy Awards, the New Zealand comedy festival, Corkman, funny, smart, quick-witted and as he’s an engineer as well he’ll appreciate all the SEO terms I’ve included for him.
OTHER NEWS – BOLLOXOLOGY IN THE BESTSELLERS AND SIGNED COPIES ON IRISHMAMMIES.IE plus A COMPETITION!
My main news is that my new book Bolloxology has been in the Top 10 best-sellers list since it was published. Thanks to those of you who bought it.
Of the thousands who have bought the book, no one has contacted me to say they hated it so I’m going to take that as proof the book isn’t crap.
It’s available on www.Irishmammies.ie along with all your Irish Mammy Christmas needs!
To celebrate, I’m giving away a few free copies. To enter, tell me the slogan on one of the teatowels that is for sale on the site.
