Tigh He-He, the weekly comedy club on Thursday nights returns to the Róisín Dubh on March 9th with different comedians each week. This Thursday, Patrick McDonnell takes to the stage.
Best known for his role as Eoin McLove on Father Ted, Pat has also delighted Irish viewers on Moone Boy, Stew, Naked Camera and the Savage Eye. More than that, Pat is one of Ireland’s most accomplished and respected comedians. He’s been touring comedy clubs at home and abroad for years earning international acclaim for ripping rooms apart wherever he goes. A favourite at Róisín Dubh, Patrick’s vacant stare and guileless manner will have you laughing before he opens his mouth.
With support from Ellen O’Reilly
Ellen O’Reilly is a musician who turned to stand up after her life went a bit topsy turvy, expect some very filthy stories, bad language and sing-alongy-jokey songs that are not for the font hearted! Described as the female Bill Bailey (with slightly less ass hair), Ellen is sure to leave ya weeping, cringing and releasing much mirth.
And Chris Watts
One of Ireland’s most promising young comedians, Chris Watts only got on stage for the first time in late 2021. Despite this, he has already performed in iconic Irish venues, including Róisín Dubh and Workman’s Club and recently won his first comedy competition at the Toilet Duck Awards. He has worked with renowned Irish comics such as Karl Spain and Deirdre O’Kane and performed as a support act for Danny O’Brien on his ‘The God of All Things Bad’ tour last year. Chris also made his festival debut at Galway Comedy Festival in October.
And this week’s host Eric Lalor
As a capable, flexible performer it is hard to pigeon hole Eric Lalor’s act. His warm, energetic onstage presence makes for an unforgettable experience for the audience. With gags that always hit the spot, his engaging, high intensity performances make him one of the top names of ‘must book’ comedians.
Eric is a regular act at the prestigious Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival, as well as playing the Electric Picnic, Galway Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, Portlaoise Halloween Howls and Iveagh Gardens Festivals as well as being invited to perform at the very first ever London Irish Comedy Festival in Oct 2012. He has also opened for some of the biggest names in Irish comedy including Tommy Tiernan, Des Bishop, Jason Byrne, PJ Gallagher, Andrew Maxwell, Colin Murphy and more.
