“Let me take you on a journey around a man’s mind…don’t worry, it won’t take long.”
Brace yourself as Peadar de Burca’s new one-man comedy takes you on a mission to find out what goes on in the mind of the most complex species on the planet. Irish comedian, actor and playwright Peadar de Burca interviewed over 300 men in Ireland and England trying to find out exactly what they wanted from life and love. Unfortunately, he found out. Following on from the sell-out successes of What Men Want and Why Men Cheat, Why Men Marry has continued with the tradition of rave reviews. Not for the bashful or the easily shocked, Why Men Marry is definitely not for men that can’t laugh… at themselves! Adm.: €15 / €12 (concessions)
As the Celtic Tiger seems to have slunk into a corner , curled into a ball and gone to sleep, God only knows where-has anyone seen him- and our newspapers are full of stories of doom and gloom and bad weather, an evening of hilarious comedy with the inimitable Jon Kenny is just what the doctor ordered. We could all do with a good dose of that! So turn off your televisions and radios – they’re only making you sick – and come out for an evening of craic.
‘He has an uncanny eye for the most absurd elements of life as we know it while at the same time lampooning the idiocies spawned by recently discovered (and just as quickly lost) affluence’ (Hotpress – March 11 2009)
‘Jon Kenny drips country. If you hung him out to dry what you’d find if you looked in the puddle below would be a reflection of rural Ireland over the past few decades, warts and all’ (Donegal News)
‘I’m not says I …I’m Fine’ heralds a return for Jon to the type of work that made his reputation as one of the most talented comedians in Ireland.
Jon uses the changing face of contemporary Ireland as the scaffold
on which to build his hilarious observations and characters. Running through such contrasting experiences as supporting Munster rugby to visiting a health spa, Kenny takes no prisoners and delights in emphasizing the humour in everyday life.
This is a thrilling experience for lovers of comedy everywhere and it comes to the Town Hall Theatre, Kiltimagh on December 18th at 8p.m. Tickets, priced at €15, are available at the door, or in advance at the IRD Office or by calling 094-9381494.
