On Wednesday, January 15, Bow Lane Social Club launches the first episode of Queer as Jokes; a night of Stand-Up Queer Comedy.
Host / MC Fran Winston (Battle of the Axe, Cherry Comedy, Funny Women and Comedy Gold) will ring-master a fantastic line up headed by none other than Gearóid Farrelly. They’ll be joined by Jen Butler, Ren Forsythe, Johannes Evans, Jack Emonotta, Kate Feeney and Saoirse Smith.
Gearóid Farrelly’s comedy career got off to a flying start when in the space of a few short weeks he was a finalist in the prestigious “So You Think You’re Funny?” competition at the Edinburgh Festival and winner of the Bulmers Nuthin Butt Funny Newcomer competition at the Bulmers Festival in Dublin.
A polished live performer, Gearóid’s stand-up appearances for television include “Stand & Deliver”, “Tonight With Craig Doyle” and as a guest of Ardal O’Hanlon for Dave’s “One Night Stand”. In 2012 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Festival with his show “Turbulence” winning a five-star review in the process.
He was then invited to support comedy royalty and living legend Joan Rivers for the Dublin dates of her “Now or Never” tour. Following these dates Joan once again asked him to open for her at one of the largest venues on her UK tour, which was filmed for her reality show.
He recently toured the UK as a support act for Sarah Millican. He is a regular at all major Irish festivals. He toured Ireland many times with Neil Delamere in Ireland.
Recently Gearóid was nominated by the public for a GALA award in the Arts and Entertainment category alongside Graham Norton and Mark Feehily from Westlife. Gearóid will be on tour with his new show “Alchemy” this year.
Tickets online are €5 and door tax on the night is €10. Reserve yours here.
