post title #18


Hello all. After a week that would fill a Reeling In The Years episode all on its own, now here’s a free event you might turn up to. Inn Jokes this Wednesday, the last of the Summer. It’s our 8th anniversary which means the jokes will be … (*checks Wikipedia*) bronze and  pottery themed.
Forging amazing humour and then smashing the place with it are:
John Colleary 
The man who wrote and starred in some of the best Irish comedy on TV ever to be not given further series. Savage Eye and Irish Pictorial Weekly and early Naked Camera have all been part of the back catalogue and happily he’s also very funny on stage too.
Joining John is Patser Murray, actor and comedian. He was an IRA man in Love Hate and he plays another wrong un in the latest film Black 47 but his best roles have been telling jokes on the Inn Jokes stage.
Lisa Casey is our opening act – winner of the Irish Comedian of the year competition last year, going on a tour around Australia and generally being highly regarded as an up and coming talent in Irish comedy.
Also a special bonus short set from Abie Bowman making  a return to comedy touring – the man behind Jesus the Guantanamo years, and Jedward versus the IMF – with his new show at the Dublin Fringe Festival called  this

Other news:
