The Nualas Are All Spanxed Up!
It's 2017 - The Nuala sequins are out, the hurty shoes are on, the hair is coiffed to within an inch of its life and the liposuction didn't work. But who cares! They've got spanx!
Yes, Ireland's favourite all-girl, musical-comedy trio, The Nualas, are on the road again! Expect an evening of scintillating new song, spleen-rupturingly hilarious new chat and a stunningly bendy repertoire of new moves, despite the fact that they've lost all feeling from the waist down (the spanx).
Since their first outing in 1995, their unique brand of intricately-arranged, self-penned songs and provocative perspective on everything from spanx to hors d'oeuvres to global apocalypse has wowed audiences from Singapore to Moate. In an utterly fabulous career they've played extended seasons in London, Melbourne and New York, written and recorded several series for BBC Radio 4, appeared at the Royal Albert Hall, released a video (yes, 'video') with Sony, split up and got back together again, clocked up innumerable TV appearances and met Chris de Burgh in the flesh. Now, with this fabulous new extravaganza, The Nualas promise to leave your ankles swollen with laughter, your ear drums throbbing in sheer musical ecstasy and your eyeballs bulging out of their sockets in disbelief as they knock it out of the comedy park yet again (in spanx).

Joanne McNally - Bite Me
Directed by Una McKevitt
This is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet.
She didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that mattered. Then one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realized she’d lost her mind. Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view and its new found freedom. Trying to entice it back became the hardest, funniest, greatest and weirdest time of her life.

Jason Byrne – The Man with Three Brains
‘The Man With Three Brains’ is a brand new show from the highly acclaimed and extremely funny, Jason Byrne.
Jason has three brains which kick into action when he hits the stage. His left brain scans the audience and room, looking for improv moments. His right brain collates stand-up material and stunts, poised to dish out the funnies at speed. His centre brain is Jason’s coach, pushing him to the limit.
This show will peel back the madness inside Jason Byrne’s head to reveal all three brains working individually. The fastest thinking comic around will not only trip himself up, but probably you too.
It’s been a busy few years for Byrne. In addition to his extensive touring worldwide, his Radio 2 show was awarded the UK radio industry’s prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award. As well as fronting a brand new studio based comedy chat show Jason Byrne's Snaptastic Show for TV3, he is co-host of Sky’s hugely popular new entertainment programme Wild Things on Sky1. Also seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC1), The Royal Variety Show (ITV1), The John Bishop Show (BBC1), and Father Figure (BBC1) of which he is creator and star.
