Viva La Charlatanne!

Karen Egan Charlatanne

Adored by gay audiences across Europe, the divine Karen Egan has returned to Ireland to tour her new album, with nights in Galway, Limerick and Dublin still in the offing.


Looking for a great night out, with laughs, music and all the glamour your little gay heart can take? The inimitable Karen Egan returns to the fray this month with show that showcases her new album, not to mention the diva antics that have made her beloved by gay audiences from here to Helsinki.

With Charlatanne, Egan moves from cabaret and ditches Dietrich for a new sound that’s an explosion of original songs performed in a wide variety of musical genres. It’s a rollercoaster of styles, embracing hip-hop, pop, jazz, country, French ballad, blue-grass and gospel, with lush, lamenting strings and sassy brass arrangements, groove guitars and superb musicians to boot.

Never fear, though, she’ll still continue to make her infamous quips and costume changes, making for a thrilling night of comedy and new music.

See Karen in Limerick on February 27 at Dolan’s Upstairs, Galway on February 28 at Monroe’s Live Backstage Bar, and Dublin on March 6 at Whelan’s
