Des Bishop is coming home after spending over a year in China with some fun stories to share; from working in a restaurant in the North East for a month to trying to find a wife in a Marriage Park; plus some great journeys with Leo his co-worker from the Abrakebabra days. But he also can't wait to tell you about all the things he missed about home: democracy, milk, sarcasm and so much more. Most importantly though Des just can't wait to speak English without being censored!

Gay Byrne Live On Stage - SOLD OUT

Produced by John McColgan, Abhann Productions

Sat 1 Nov 2014 8PM Main Auditorium // €20

Gay Byrne, one of the most loved television and radio personalities in Irish history will perform his show, GAY BYRNE, LIVE ON STAGE, as part of a short Irish tour. Following sell-out shows last year, this is an exclusive chance to enjoy Gay Byrne at his best in a live performance telling some of the greatest show-biz stories never told in a hilarious evening’s entertainment, described as “a master class in comedy”.

In his five decade broadcasting career, Gay Byrne hosted the Late Late from 1962 to 1999 and was the first presenter to ever interview the Beatles on TV, he is recognized as “the man who changed Ireland”, both on his RTÉ morning radio show and the weekly Late Late Show  where he introduced Ireland to modernity – and then stood back to witness the brawl!
From senior politicians to senior clergy to the brightest stars in the Hollywood firmament, he has been a confessor figure to the good, the bad and the ugly. At 80, he’s now in happy semi-retirement but during his exhilarating two hour plus show, he talks about all the extraordinary moments he has witnessed or been at the centre of.
Listen to the behind-the-scenes stories of the stars and the star-makers with Ireland’s foremost legendary broadcaster in his first solo stage show.

The forgotten Sugababe, the bad boy of Zumba, David O’Doherty presents a new hour of talking and songs. Take a ride into the Davidzone.

One man. One small keyboard. With batteries. And a chair. And a mic. And cables. And a sound system. And then a room, obviously. With more chairs. And a lighting rig. It’s surprising how much stuff is involved, actually.

Things are not going well in Happy Valley where Mother Magee lives with her son Jack. All the crops and livestock are vanishing – even the King’s hen that lays the golden eggs has disappeared. Mother Magee is worried that her cow Daisy will disappear too. Jack is trying to find a solution to it all. Fairy Snow gives Jack magic beans that grow into a giant beanstalk. Jack climbs up through the clouds where he sees a castle which is home to a cruel giant.

Jason Byrne - You Name The Show

Jason Byrne - You Name The Show

Wed 4 - Thu 5 Feb 2015 8PM Main Auditorium


It has often been said that no two Jason Byrne show are ever the same. Now the master of improvised comedy pushes the limits even further with the introduction of the wheel of stand up. This totally original stand up concept, which is either an act of extreme daring or supreme laziness, involves Jason not only letting the audience name the show but getting them to choose the topics discussed as they are invited to spin the wheel of random nonsense.

Don't miss the most talked about show at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014. Talk that involved every other comedian in the world saying, 'He's doing what now? ... ah Jesus, why do we even bother!'
We've all watched Jason rip up the comedy rule book. Now watch him rip it up, set fire to it, defecate on it and point at it in derisory fashion.*

* This show contains no actual ripping, burning or defecating and only some mild derisory pointing.
