Toronto, Boston, New York in March, also Red Rock and Hey Ho Let’s Go!

I am heading back to Toronto on March 13th to do the Canadian Irish Fund annual St Patrick’s Day Lunch. I did this last year and had a whale of a time; one thousand people sat having lunch in the Toronto Convention Centre after arriving at 11am to a free bar. It’s not for the faint hearted but I had a great time last year and even got to meet the controversial Toronto mayor at the time Rob Ford. He wasn’t invited but he just turned up anyway and caused quite a stir.

The next day I’m flying down to Boston […]

Leicester Comedy Festival, New York Shows!!

Above is a video I shot on my phone of Phill Jupitus singing This Charming Man in The Roisin Dubh in Galway after we had performed together with Whose Line Is It Anyway improv dudes. I was so taken aback by his performance I fell on my side but managed to get back upright after a few seconds.

I’ll be performing my own one hour show Your Man Joe Rooney at The Leicester Comedy Festival in Duffy’s Bar, Leicester at 5pm on 21st February;http://www.comedy-festival.co.uk/events/show.php?event_id=4599&showdate=2015-02-21&venue=445

Airport security makes me smash my guitar!!

Recently I have had to swallow quantities of toothpaste inside condoms in order to get it through airport security. Unfortunately one of them burst and I almost overdosed on fluoride. If I hadn’t built up a resistance to fluoride by drinking Irish tap water I would have died. A fortunate upshot from this event is I now have a fashionably nicely bleached anus. I am not racist especially when it comes to anuses but a bleached anus is pleasing to the eye.

Ooooooops I hate myself!

I am not playing The Stand,Edinburgh next weekend as I had thought but The Stand, Newcastle. I’m such a screw up. I booked a flight out of Edinburgh and a train from Birmingham up to Edinburgh and then I got an email from the Stand in Newcastle to confirm that I am appearing there next week and I felt like such an idiot as booked another flight and train and realised I lost one nights money at least by my mistake. On the other hand it has been confirmed that I am doing a one hour show in The Village […]
