Comedians Against Covid – Pass It On

A cheesy retro comedy power-ballad video to show support for frontline workers from Irish comedians, including Kevin McGahern, Tara Flynn, Jen Hatton, Joe Rooney and more.

All done in aid of St Vincent’s Foundation.

In fairness,

Pass It On (Comedians Against Covid)

Of course you do.

“One day you’re writing a sitcom for Comedy Central USA, the next you’re cutting your own hair…”

In Overnight Failure, Dublin comic Brian Cheatle  (above) – host of Retro-Vision– like many of us suddenly “finds himself middle-aged after decades of screw-ups”.

Produced by Caroline Swords, this new stand-up show plays at the Smock Alley Theatre, Lower Exchange Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 8 on February 27-28.

Tickets here:

Director Jonathan Miller’s fascinating documentary profile of ultra-Orthodox Jewish comic David Finklestein is the tale of a man looking to find his place in an alien world and using jokes as a means to do that.

Struggling to balance his love of stand-up with his strict religious lifestyle, Finklestein is forced to make a choice between his passion and his community.

He’s funny. You’ll like him.
