Like our ancestors and Eddie Murphy, we came to America and found more than we ever expected. Thanks to all the sound listeners who came out to hear and see the show in Manhattan on October 31st, our guests John Duddy & Tim Wheeler, the Irish Network in NY, Lorcan Shannon and Glamour Magazine’s Editor Samantha Barry for doing the show the day before. It was a short trip but definitely not our last. My next trip is to Berlin in December for one standup show – tickets are on sale now and there’s a link under the live tab.
I have a new standup show almost written. I’m running around different places trying it out at the moment while trying to do everything else. The first proper performance of the new show will take place at the Leicester Comedy Festival on February 10th. Tickets for that are on sale here.
In case you missed it, Irishman Behind Bars is now heading for Episode 4. Featuring Paddy Armstrong of the Guildford 4, Ibrahim Halawa and the case of Harry Gleeson, season 1 focusses on cases of wrongful conviction and we will expand it from there. The next episodes are about the Maamtrasna murders, the case of Steven Avery and a broader discussion of why these cases occur with Anne Driscoll of the Innocence Project. Right now the only way to hear it is on our premium feed. I’m so bloody proud of the series so far, that alone would justify the tiny $5 subscription but you get a lot more on top of just one series. Have a look for yourself.
Men Behaving Better is hurtling towards our biggest event of the year. A double episode recording at The Other Palace Theatre on December 6th. If you haven’t heard the other episodes here’s a link. Tickets are shifting fast so move your butts.
This year’s card collection will launch in the next week or so. I can safely say this year’s card are truly ridiculous. I’ve re-released some old goodies in the meantime if you can’t wait until then.
