NEIL DELAMERE, FRED COOKE, ERIN MCGATHY, KEVIN DOYLE TOMORROW NIGHT (28TH) AT THE PATRIOT’S INN KILMAINHAM 9.15PM
That’s it now the days are getting short again.
To try fight the remorseless advance of Winter, Inn Jokes this Wednesday has a cracking line up.
Our headliner is Neil Delamere one of the country’s finest exponents of the art of quickfire topical. clever-funny with a side of top quality audience work. He has his own radio show on Today FM, a decade and a half of good telly under his belt and heads back to Edinburgh for the umpteenth time this year. We’re glad he’s limbering up for his new tour with an intimate gig here at IJ Arena.
Also on the bill is a headliner in his own right, Fred Cooke. Currently touring with Tommy Tiernan and armed with a guitar and a great sense of fun, he is gale force of laughy clowny stuff.
Kicking the night off is Erin McGathy. Erin was supposed to appear a few months ago but a last minute call for a bitta-work in LA – as in Los Angeles, not Lower Abbey Street – meant she had to pull out but happily she’s back. Erin has been on telly – Community -, podcast – This feels Terrible – as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and all the Irish summer ones.
Also joining us is the very funny Kevin Doyle, who is not a former Republic of Ireland striker – but more effective in a tight space with 7 minutes on the clock!
MC is me.
My main news is that my two most recent RTE Radio 1 shows went out on May Bank Holiday and June Bank Holiday respectively. You can here them here and here. Two more were recorded at the start of June and these will go out in on the August and October Bank Holidays I think. (I’m as ‘Bank Holiday’ as a lie-in and a breakfast with hash-browns in a hotel down the country somewhere, at this stage.)
