(The Savage eye)
& Special guests Fusion Family.
McSavage’s unique brand and blend of repartee, ribaldry and rhythm has seen him described as among the brightest new stars to emerge onto the comedy circuit in recent years. A unique talent, David McSavage honed his craft on the streets of Europe as a street performer over many years and worked the comedy circuit as far a field as Australia and Scandinavia. Returning to Dublin three years ago, McSavage quickly established himself on the Dublin comedy circuit performing at venues like the International Bar, the Ha’penny Inn, and Galway’s Cuba. Discovered by Pat Kenny doing the warm up for the ‘Late Late Show’ he went on to make a record four personal appearances on the show. He now sells out several nights at the renowned ‘Vicar Street’ venue. McSavage’s improv shows a fast and profound wit. He treads the line between madness and genius with aplomb. He is a genuinely gifted comedian “Best Newcomer Award” Hot Press 2003 “One of Irelands funniest comedians” The Irish Mirror “Funniest experience within 1000 km of Sydney” Sydney Morning Herald “The comic equivelant of dynamite fishing” Fest (Official Edinburgh Fringe Magazine) “McSavage is fearless, it’s incredible”
After a busy 2010 jam packed with over 100 live performances and the release of their debut album, Fusion Family are preparing for an even busier 2011 with the release of their new single and music video ‘Dr. Sadler’. Shot in 1940’s noir fashion with a hint of Sin city, it is the story of love, revenge, betrayal and victory. The music video will be available to watch online mid April 2011 and the single is featured on the Fusion Family debut album ‘Full Circle’ which is available now through HMV and other good record stores nationwide (also on i-tunes). Other goings on in the Fusion Family camp include a collaboration with LA’s finest super producer Danny Saber for the band’s next single ‘Last Time’ which is set to be recorded over the coming weeks and will be released in September 2011. The band will also be performing a number of ‘live’ dates throughout the summer at various festivals and events. Details will be announced shortly.
