Dublin comedian Gearoid Farrelly returns to Whelans with his new show. Join him for hilarious insight into why he shouldn’t go to funerals, why comedians should never go into hospital. Help him make big life decisions as to whether he should adopt.. kid or dog? A polished live performer Gearoid was recently seen on tour in Ireland supporting Neil Delamere. In the UK he opened for the late great Joan Rivers and supported the equally-great-but-not-so-late Sarah Millican on some tour-dates earlier this year. He was (literally!) PJ Gallaghers right-hand man in “Meet Your Neighbours” and appeared on numerous tv series and panel shows (The Panel, Craig Doyle Live) and stand-up shows in Ireland and the UK (Stand and Deliver, Dave’s One Night Stand). Find out more about Gearoid on He is currently available for stand-up shows and occupational first-aid duties (no cold sores). “Intelligent, reflective comedy” The Irish Times “The next big thing in Irish comedy” Irish Independent “Quick and Snappy” The Skinny “Sharp and ruthless” ✭✭✭✭ Three Weeks “To be an audience member in Farrelly’s crowd is a joy. Each joke landed perfectly…. impeccable comic timing.. ” ✭✭✭✭✭ Broadway Baby “My favourite set of the five days…. a punchy set that didn’t contain a duff moment. Expressive storytelling and shrewd social commentary” Chortle (Cat Laughs 2014 Review) “The best opening act in his price range” Joan Rivers This show will also launch the second series of his podcast series “Fascinated”. Series one is available on iTunes, soundcloud and stitcher.
