Who knew explaining how Irish wedding drinking works would prove so popular? Youtube did. This video has gone semi-viral in the last few weeks. If you are not subscribed to my channel, please do. I am banging up 3 new podcast videos a week and one new standup video every Friday.

Would You Like To Be Coached By Sonia O’Sullivan?

It Could Be You! But if you’re not in you can’t win!
That’s the opportunity the Irishman Running Abroad podcast is offering on this week’s show. Two lucky listeners will receive 10 weeks of coaching from Sonia and a fully tailored training plan created for their specific running ability by the greatest Irish track and field star of all time as part of the Irishman Running Abroad Half Marathon Challenge. The winners will also link up with us and the show every two weeks, fill us in on your progress and eventually on August 28th, take part in the Antrim Coast Half Marathon. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this incredible prize is send an email to irishmanabroadpodcast@gmail.com with your story and the subject “Pick Me”. Sonia will select and announce the winners on the show next week. You’ll also need to be (a bit of a character) able to take part in the half marathon on August 28th and cool with chatting to us on the podcast every couple of weeks. This really is a once in a life time chance to get instruction, support and craic from the best in the biz. Being coached by Sonia completely changed my life. I can’t guarantee it will do the same for you but I can promise we will have a lot of fun along the way. Winners will also receive the very fancy Irishman Running Abroad 2022 team singlet and th respect of all the runners in your parish. Good luck, Jar.

Stand-Up Is Back! Like Properly Back.

Delighted to say that after a long time of dribbling back to life, the power hose of comedy is back on full. Adding dates all the time and building towards something really special in the summer and autumn. Hope you and your loved ones have survived this thing we have lived through. Get in touch with me / (the person that handles the big stuff) if you have any questions about live shows, bookings, podcasts, running or life.

Return Of The Craic has a new indoor home and will be announcing a full slate of shows over the next while. Irishman Abroad just added a new twice monthly podcast featuring someone I love. Sonia O’Sullivan and I are heading to Cobh for her ten mile road race in April. Why not come with us and raise some money for charity.

Brand New Christmas Cards Are Here For 2021!

Delighted to announce that my new Christmas cards are finally here. They’re not your average cards in that they’re funny. You need to chose carefully who you send them to. Printed in Dublin using the finest card and ink, each one comes with a delightful envelope. We ship the very next day you order. Enjoy.

Here’s the new babies.

Exclusively Available In Ireland

    I was hoping to be able to ship them world-wide or at the very least to England but sadly that was not to be. We will also be selling last year’s set. I have updated them for 2021. The shop is now open for you to browse and grab.

    These are some of my all time favourites.

Run – Write – Laugh – Podcast – Try To Avoid Infection.

It goes without saying things have gotten even stranger since I released Notions Eleven to stream globally. While I have you there, don’t forget to go here to watch it. I’m very proud of it and you will laugh. Lord, do we need to laugh.

I’ve been doing everything possible to keep making stuff for you to enjoy the past few month. I completely revamped the podcast on Patreon so that members could now enjoy even more running pods with Sonia, a mini-series on independent book shops, Marion McKeone on the greatest scandals in American history and bigger guests than ever before on Sunday’s Irishman Abroad big interview show. If you want the show to keep going and you’d like to keep on getting more of it, pop over an d join up.

Return Of The Craic went from online to the real world with shows resuming here in the UK a while ago. I’m happy to say the shows we have put on have all sold out. We are now adding a big show in London for the Underbelly Festival on September 25th. I’d absolutely love you to come and see a massive lineup of acts who played the club during lockdown, in person for the first time.

I’ve Got Notions…On The RTE Player!

Notions Eleven, my first ever standup special, has landed on the RTE Player and is now available to stream worldwide for FREE for the first time. This show is my baby. It took more than a year to put together and we were so lucky to get it filmed just under the wire on March 6th, 2020. I think you’re going to love it.

Full One Hour Standup Special Filmed In Dublin on March 6th, 2020.

So Much News…Online Gigs, New Podcasts & More.

Return Of The Craic, my comedy club, is now happening on a weekly basis. In the real world it happens in my local venue. In this weird world of lockdown it happens online. We give the profits from the shows to charity and key workers get in free each week. This week it’s charity workers turn. Spread the word. These shows work very simply in that you register and get a link. 20 audience members sit up from in the show and the rest get a private link for YouTube. I have spent about 9 months getting these gigs to work properly, sound great and look great. We need to laugh at the end of these mad weeks and we need to help these charities. Just click here to register and get your tickets.

Since all this madness began I have more than tripled the output from Irishman Abroad podcasts. There’s the running/wellness podcast with the legend Sonia O’Sullivan, the America podcast with our US correspondent Marion McKeone, our cultural recommendations podcast The Selection Box and of course our big interview each Sunday. There’s never been a better time to jump on board and get access to it all here.

But wait there’s more we also released new Irishman Inside Basketball, Men Behaving Better episodes and a new YouTube video version of The Selection Box exclusive to our members.

Stay safe and I’ll see you at the gigs hopefully.

Jar.
